CTV Comedy Channel heads back to Dog River for the fourth and final season of Corner Gas Animated, July 5

From a media release:

CORNER GAS ANIMATED heads to the pump one last time as the fan-favourite CTV Comedy Channel Original returns for its fourth and final season, Monday, July 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The latest chapter in the 17-year long history of the iconic CORNER GAS franchise is set to conclude with 13, all-new half-hour episodes packed full of guest stars and a series finale featuring a soon-to-be-revealed Hollywood A-lister.

New episodes of CORNER GAS ANIMATED are available to stream on CTV.ca and the CTV app.

The fourth and final season sees Brent (Brent Butt) impose a ban to keep his father from entering the gas station. Emma (Corrine Koslo) and Oscar (Eric Peterson) face off in a battle of impressions, but Emma is annoyed when everyone loves Oscar’s impression of her the most. Hank (Fred Ewanuick) discovers a bird’s nest, and sets up a livestream so everyone in town can watch the eggs hatch. Lacey (Gabrielle Miller), Wanda (Nancy Robertson), and Karen (Tara Spencer-Nairn) struggle to get noticed on a dating app, and Davis (Lorne Cardinal) and Karen are excited to do some bona-fide police work when an escaped convict is on the loose.

This season of CORNER GAS ANIMATED also features a lineup of star-studded cameos including: prolific Canadian actress and member of the Order of Canada, Tantoo Cardinal; SON’S OF ANARCHY’s Kim Coates; Marvel superhero Simu Liu from the upcoming Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings; KIDS IN THE HALL’s Mark McKinney; iconic Canadian satirist Rick Mercer; and Steven Page, founding member of The Barenaked Ladies.

In the season premiere, “Parachute the Messenger,” (Monday, July 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT), Brent and Wanda help Lacey achieve her dream of skydiving by working through her fears, but Wanda seems more excited about the possibility of pushing Lacey out of the plane. Mark McKinney makes a special guest appearance as pilot Frank Shoddy.

Launching in April 2018, CORNER GAS ANIMATED quickly established itself as a ratings hit, with the premiere episode debuting as the most-watched series premiere in the history of CTV Comedy Channel, and the entire first season concluding as CTV Comedy Channel’s most-watched series of the broadcast year among total viewers, and in all key demos. The second season of CORNER GAS ANIMATED saw its overall audience increase by 41%. Season 3, which premiered October 2020, is currently the most watched show on CTV Comedy Channel, this broadcast year among the key adult demos.

CORNER GAS ANIMATED has received 13 Canadian Screen Award nominations, taking home six trophies in the last three years, including back-to-back wins for Best Animated Program or Series in 2020 and 2021; and Best Writing, Animation in 2019 and 2020.
