A journey from YouTube to being streamed on Crave as a television series “Letterkenny” acquired popularity and immense success. Canadian big shot and the creator of “Letterkenny” Jared Keeso, is set to serve its ninth season. As per the makers’ confirmation, the show is likely to comprise of 70 episodes including special episodes. By season 8, the show couldn’t touch the 70th episode. Hence we believe that the show will certainly bring a season 9 and even a season 10 as well. Read to know about the release date, cast, and plot of the ninth season.
This Canadian television sitcom debuted in February 2016 and later aired on The Comedy Network. With a production commitment of more than 40 new episodes, the eighth season premiered on Crave on December 25, 2019. In the United States, Hulu distributed two seasons of Letterkenny on July 13, 2018. Hulu had obtained exclusive rights to the series and future seasons in the U.S in May 2019.
Although the series has been renewed for a ninth season in June 2020, we are unaware of its release date. Due to the novel coronavirus outbreak, the production of season 9 may be delayed. However, we expect season 9 to hit Hulu by the end of this year or the beginning of 2021.
The cast of previous seasons will definitely remain unchanged but we a bit unsure if there will be any guest appearance. We’re pleased to see the creator of the show Jared Keeso playing the character of Wayne. We will also get Nathan Dales as Daryl, Michelle Mylett as Katy, and K. Trevor Wilson as Squirrelly Dan on screen.
Additionally, we expect Dylan Playfair as Reilly, Andrew Herr as Jonesy, Tyler Johnston as Stewart and many more.
The upcoming season may bring us the grown-up individuals of the three groups as well as their never-ending fights. We expect to face challenges among themselves. These are just presumptions. We are uncertain if the script for season 9 is ready. Therefore, as of now, there is no update regarding its plot from the officials. As soon as we get their official commitment, we’ll surely provide you with the latest updates. Meanwhile, re-watching previous seasons will keep us engaged and entertained.
The series revolves around a small rural community of Ontario, Canada with the same name. Most of the episodes open with the text that reads “There are 5000 people in Letterkenny. These are their problems.” Letterkenny centers on siblings named Wayne and Katy who run a small farm together. They seek help from Wayne’s friend Daryl and Squirrely Dan. It also highlights a friendship between two ice hockey players Reilly and Jonesy. These two are involved in a polyamorous relationship with Wayne’s sibling Katy. Episodes of this show deal with the lives of people in a small town.
At the 5th Canadian Screen Awards, Letterkenny won the Best Comedy Series award in 2017. This sitcom received such an achievement because of the united effort of Jared Kesso, Jacob Tierney, Jonathan Torrens, Jesse McKeown, and Trevor Risk.
