‘The Kids in the Hall’ Return in Revival Series Trailer
For the first time in 12 years, the Kids in the Hall are back with new episodes of their sketch comedy series, which is now in its fifth decade on the air.
All five members of the troupe — Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney, and Scott Thompson — return for this new revival, which will stream on Amazon’s Prime Video service starting next month. Eight episodes were created for the new Kids in the Hall, which marks the team’s first new run of shows since the 2010 miniseries Death Comes to Town.
Amazon just premiered the first trailer for the new show from the self-proclaimed kings of sketch comedy, and it features a mix of new characters and old favorites:
In addition to the five Kids, the show also features appearances from Paul Bellini, Pete Davidson, Catherine O’Hara, Kenan Thompson, Brandon Ash-Mohammed, Will Forte, Catherine Reitman, Samantha Bee, Fred Armisen, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, Jay Baruchel, Eddie Izzard, Tracee Ellis Ross, Mark Hamill, and Colin Mochrie. The original Kids in the Hall television series ran from 1989 to 1995 on the CBC and HBO. After the show ended, the members reunited for a movie, Brain Candy, which flopped in theaters but became a major cult hit on video and cable. The Kids have also reunited several times in the interim for various live tours and performances.
New episodes of The Kids in the Hall premieres on Prime Video on May 13. A docuseries about the group, The Kids in the Hall: Comedy Punks, premieres on May 20. Let’s all crush some heads in celebration of this wonderful news.
