Letterkenny is a deceptive show. It seems like what a female friend called “dude humor” — horny hockey guys, fighting, beer-drinking, hot girls. That is all there.

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Link: Letterkenny stars on the Evolution of The Skids
“It’s a lot of fun to get as wild as possible with Tyler. They do give us a bit of freedom, especially with our physicality, where Ty and I can just play off each other and clown around. [Jared] Keeso and [Jacob] Tierney are really open-minded when it comes to letting us act like idiots.” Continue reading.

Seeins’ it’s traditions, Letterkenny Season 9 streams Christmas Day on Crave

From a media release:

It’s pertnear the most wondrous time of the year, even with everyone stuck inside. Season 9 of Crave’s acclaimed original comedy series, LETTERKENNY, starts streaming Christmas Day, with seven all-new episodes dropping at once. Click here to check out the trailer for an all-new season.

Created by and starring Jared Keeso, and produced by New Metric Media, in partnership with WildBrain and Play Fun Games, Season 9 of LETTERKENNY kicks off with the Hicks, Skids, and Hockey Players attending an American Buck and Doe following the fight with Dierks (Tyler Hynes). Katy takes her scorched earth dating strategy back to Letterkenny and Gail (Lisa Codrington) gets some action of her own. Meanwhile, the Hockey Players learn about Judaism and the whole town gets really into sleepover activities like movies, board games, and girl talk. Then, a “breastaurant” opens in Letterkenny and Tanis (Tiio Horn) starts her own energy drink.

The acclaimed Canadian series has been a hit with Canadian and U.S. media alike, and has received high praise from Hollywood heavyweights, including Academy Award® winner Brad Pitt and Golden Globe® winner Edward Norton, who called the series “brilliant,” and “a Canadian national treasure.”

Viewers looking to get into the yuletide mood before the big day can catch A LETTERKENNY CHRISTMAS: THE THREE WISE MEN, currently streaming on Crave, along with the first eight seasons, special episodes like “The Haunting of MoDean’s II,” “St. Perfect’s Day,” “Super Hard Easter,” and “Valentimes Day,” and the original web series, Letterkenny Problems.

The award-winning half-hour comedy revolves around the dustups Wayne (Keeso) and his buds Daryl (Nathan Dales) and Dan (K Trevor Wilson), as well as Wayne’s free-spirited younger sister Katy (Michelle Mylett), get into with their small-town rivals. Dylan Playfair and Andrew Herr reprise their roles as hotshot Hockey Players “Jonesy” and “Reilly”. Tyler Johnston and Evan Stern return as Skids Stewart and Roald. Mark Forward returns as the temperamental Coach. Jacob Tierney returns to direct all episodes and reprise his role as fan-favourite Christian leader, Glen. Tiio Horn returns as The Natives’ badass leader, Tanis, and Clark Backo is back as Wayne’s love interest, Rosie. Dan Petronijevic, Melanie Scrofano, and Kamilla Kowal return as McMurray, Mrs. McMurray, and Bonnie McMurray.

LETTERKENNY is produced by New Metric Media, in partnership with WildBrain and Playfun Games 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, and is distributed by WildBrain. Jared Keeso is executive producer, co-writer, star, and creator. Jacob Tierney is executive producer, director, and co-writer.
