CraveTV Orders A Third Season Of Letterkenny
As announced on Saturday during Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation’s event highlighting the year’s successful productions in Sudbury, CraveTV confirms that it has ordered a third season of Letterkenny.
The announcement comes just weeks after production wrapped on Season 2, which is set to premiere on CraveTV later this year. The half-hour, small-town comedy is produced by New Metric Media in partnership with DHX Media, and shoots on location in and around Sudbury, ON. Season 1 is currently streaming on CraveTV.
“Canadian comedy has always had a unique voice but Letterkenny stands apart,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President of Independent Production at Bell Media, in a press release. “We’re excited to continue working with Jared, Jacob, the exceptionally talented cast, our tireless production partners New Metric Media, and of course the city of Sudbury, as Letterkenny heads back to the farm.”
“Letterkenny continues to be a leading performer in the CraveTV lineup, and so as we finalize Season 2 launch plans, we are delivering a Season 3 pick-up now to capitalize on the incredible momentum oozing from this amazing production team,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President of CTV and Specialty.
“Letterkenny is a distinctive and authentic, proudly original program that not only drives views, but also subscriber acquisition, making today’s announcement a great day for comedy fans everywhere,” said Tracey Pearce, President of Distribution and Pay at Bell Media.
With just one season unveiled on CraveTV, Letterkenny has already garnered Texas-sized acclaim from critics and celebrities, and inspired fan-generated videos and memes.
