Today Amazon announced the popular comedy sketch The Kids in The Hall will be returning for a reboot exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. This new Amazon original will be 8 episodes and a continuation of the original show with all the same characters returning. This will be the first Canadian Amazon Original Series.
“We’ve been investing in Canada for several years and are excited to add to that momentum by making The Kids in the Hall the first Canadian Amazon Original series,” said James Farrell, Vice President of International Originals for Amazon Studios. “The Kids in the Hall is an iconic show with a deep-rooted fan base. Several of our global hits, including The Boys, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan and The Expanse have been filmed in Canada and we are looking forward to continuing our work with talented producers and crew teams across the country to bring this series to our Prime members around the world.”

Fans will be happy to know not only will the characters be returning, but Canadian comedians Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson will all reprise their original roles as ‘The Kids.’
