The Kids in the Hall is getting a reboot with the original cast
Calling all comedy fans; Kids in the Hall is officially getting a reboot, and the original cast will be returning for it.
The beloved sketch television series — which first premiered in 1989 on CBC — stars Canadian comedians Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson.
Amazon Prime Video will be reviving Kids in the Hall with an eight-episode original series, executive produced by Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels.

The reboot of Kids in the Hall is billed as "a continuation of the original show."
Amazon revealed that the cast will revive fan-favourite characters (presumably such as McKinney's Head Crusher) as well as some new characters.

The revival of Kids comes after several cast members expressed interest in working together again during an interview with the Canadian Press in 2018.
Thompson said, "It would be so much fun to get into trouble with these guys. Because the world is so different now. To play women today would be really fun."
Naturally, Canadians everywhere are ecstatic about the news.
This person is well on their way to completing their 80s bucketlist.
Kids In The Hall is coming back. Genesis is reuniting. Now all I need is The Nylons to go on tour and a re-release of The Breakfast Club and my 80's bucket list will be complete.— TheSheldonBergstrom (@TheSheldonBerg1) March 6, 2020
While this comedian is crossing his fingers that the series airs soon.
Can we all do our best to not let Coronavirus and Trump end the world before the new Kids In The Hall series goes to air, thanks.— Pete Zedlacher (@zedlacher) March 6, 2020
