The comedy, which is set in a small rural Canadian community featuring hicks, skids and hockey players, debuted last Julu on the digital platform with Hulu picking up all six seasons of the New Metric Media-produced show as an acquisition.
Season seven marks the first run to become a Hulu Original with the company taking exclusive U.S. streaming rights to all upcoming seasons of the show. The deal was done by New Metric Media and Dhx Media. It airs on Bell Media’s Crave in Canada.
Created by and starring Jared Keeso, the half-hour comedy revolves around the dustups Wayne (Keeso) and his pals get into with their small-town rivals. For the hicks, skids and hockey players of Letterkenny, getting your ass kicked is a legitimate concern on a day-to-day basis.
