Many changes happened before the start of this season. Bryan Hearne left the show after two seasons to focus on his music. During the off-season Nickelodeon advertised a competition called "R U All That?: Nickelodeon's Search for the Funniest Kid in America". It was a nationwide search to find a new cast member. The judges happened to be former cast members Amanda Bynes and Nick Cannon; Josh Peck was also a judge. After this contest ended in early 2003, the finals aired on July 26, 2003. The contest picked five finalists, and all of them performed a sketch with some of the cast members. The winner was Christina Kirkman, who joined the show in the season opener and replaced Bryan Hearne. Ryan Coleman, the runner up in the contest, joined mid season as a replacement for Jamie Lynn Spears after she left to star on Zoey 101.
Ratings wise the show was not doing well. In order to raise ratings the producers brought back old fan favorite sketches, like Good Burger. However instead of Kel Mitchell in his famous character Ed, they put in Coleman in a test skit. They thought the fit would work, resulting in the revision of the skit.
This would be the final season for Shane Lyons, Giovonnie Samuels, and Jamie Lynn Spears. Shane Lyons left All That after opting not to renew his contract. Giovonnie Samuels left because she felt was too old to be on All That, similar to original cast member Lori Beth Denberg exiting after Season 4. Jamie Lynn left to star in her own Nickelodeon show Zoey 101, a show also created by Dan Schneider.
The cast of Season 9 continued to do On-Air Dares. Like the last season. The intro was changed for this season. This time the cast is in the same place. They are dancing in a dark room with the All That logo in the back. It is lighted up. The cast however is now wearing red, unlike that of white in Seasons 7 and 8. The "Oh" sign was brought back, Brummet and Kirkman both held the sign in the intro. It is similar to the previous two seasons. The intro was changed to accommodate Coleman's entry onto the show.
This is the first season since Season 3 to have more female cast members then male and the last season to do so.
