No doubt fans should prepare for hilarity, as McKinney, 61, and McDonald, 60, attracted rather humorous ensembles.

Baruchel, 39, wasn’t in a funny outfit, but will no doubt add some hearty comedic chops to the highly anticipated series as he starred in several beloved comedy films, including 2013’s This Is The End and 2010’s She’s Out Of My League.

Not featured on the set were series regulars Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch and Scott Thompson.

Foley, 58, has been quite active in sparking excitement for the reboot as he’s been posting about the series in several social media posts over the past few months.

Foley shared a fantastic group photo of the comedy group late last month, announcing that “filming has begun” for the 8-episode revival of the Amazon Original series in Toronto.

The original beloved show ran for six seasons from 1988 to 1995.

The Kids In The Hall was an acclaimed sketch comedy starring the Newsradio alum alongside fellow actors Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson.

The show was nominated for three Primetime Emmy Awards in the mid-1990s.

In April, Dave also shared a selfie on his way to the shoot, which he noted had been delayed due to the one-year pandemic pandemic break.

“Wish us luck,” he concluded.

In March last year, Amazon Prime Video initially announced their intention for the fan-beloved cult sketch show, but the plan was clearly shelved as the global pandemic hit full throttle later that month.

According to Amazon’s original announcement, all five cast members of the Toronto-based comedy show have returned, as has Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels.

Michaels was also the producer of the original series, on 102 of the 103 episodes in its first run.
