From a media release:
As revealed last night during TSNâ€™s 104thÂ GREY CUP broadcast, Season 2 of CraveTVâ€™s smash-hit original comedyÂ LETTERKENNYÂ launchesÂ Christmas DayÂ with a brand new six-pack ready to stream. Thatâ€™s a great day for binging on appies and TV, bud. In keeping with tradition, CraveTV released this beauty of aÂ Season 2 cold openÂ today.
Created and co-written byÂ Jared KeesoÂ of Bravoâ€™s hit Canadian Screen Award-winning original dramaÂ 19-2, Season 2 sees the return of hick-with-a-heart-of-gold Wayne (Keeso) and the rest of small-town foes The Hicks, The Skids, and The Hockey Players.
Season 2 ofÂ LETTERKENNYÂ proves all is fair in love and politics with a power struggle in the Agricultural Hall, the Hockey Players getting knocked down a peg both on and off the ice, and some interesting inter-group romantic tanglings.
Already confirmed for a third season,Â LETTERKENNYÂ is produced by New Metric Media in partnership with DHX Media. Season 3 is set to begin production on another six pack on location in Sudbury, ON in 2017. Season 1 is currently streaming on CraveTV.
LETTERKENNYÂ revolves around the dustups Wayne and his buds get into with their small-town Ontario rivals. Back to cause a whole lot of ruckus out of a whole lot of nothing, The Hicks, The Skids, and The Hockey Players get at each other about the most mundane things, often ending with someone getting their ass kicked. Wayne, his best bud Daryl (Nathan Dales,Â Goon: Last of the Enforcers), Wayneâ€™s free-spirited younger sister Katy (Michelle Mylett, FOUR IN THE MORNING), and Wayneâ€™s buddy, Dan (K Trevor Wilson, JEFF ROSS PRESENTS: ROAST BATTLE) are all Hicks. McMurray (Daniel Petronijevic, 19-2) is a Hick but has been outcast due to his inability to relax. He also runs the Agricultural Hall with his loving wife Mrs. McMurray (Melanie Scrofano, WYNONNA EARP).Â Dylan PlayfairÂ (HATERS BACK OFF) andÂ Andrew HerrÂ (Mr Hockey: The Gordie Howe Story) reprise their roles as Hockey Players â€œJonesyâ€ and â€œReillyâ€.Â Tyler JohnstonÂ (MOTIVE) stars as lead Skid, Stewart, and Stewartâ€™s â€œSideskidâ€ Devon is played byÂ Alexander De JordyÂ (19-2).Â Evan Stern(RoboCop) stars as Third-Skid-in-Command, Roald.Â Lisa CodringtonÂ (COPPER) returns as Modeans bartender, Gail, andÂ Jacob TierneyÂ (The Trotsky)Â as the Christian leader Glen.
Season 1 ofÂ LETTERKENNYÂ continues to reign as the biggest debut of any series on CraveTV since the premium TV streaming service launched in 2014, with more CraveTV users watchingÂ LETTERKENNYÂ than any other series or title on CraveTV.Â LETTERKENNYÂ is based on the Internet sensationÂ Letterkenny Problems, a series of shorts which have raked in more than 21 million views.
LETTERKENNYÂ is produced by New Metric Media (What Would Sal Do?), in partnership with DHX Media in association with Bell Media, with the participation of Canadian Media Fund, OMDC Tax Credits and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit and the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund. Jacob Tierney is executive producer, director, and co-writer. Patrick Oâ€™Sullivan and Mark Montefiore are executive producers for New Metric Media.
