Kids In The Hall reboot is in production at Amazon… after COVID puts Canadian comedy gem’s revival on hold

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

And now, the highly anticipated reboot of The Kids In The Hall has finally entered production, as seen in several social media shares from comedic actor frontman Dave Foley.

Foley, 58, shared a fantastic group photo of the comedy group late last month, announcing that “filming has begun” on the 8-episode Amazon Original series revival order in Toronto.

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.
