Big reasons to get excited are afoot for fans of the 5,000 people in “Letterkenny” and their problems.

Announced by Hulu last week, and later picked up by Variety, the beloved and vulgar Canadian sitcom will return for a seventh season as a Hulu Original on Oct. 14. Produced and released by Crave TV in its native land to the north, “Letterkenny” will now release all future seasons on the streaming platform in the U.S., which is also home to the first six seasons of the witty sitcom.

“We know from the current success of our Original comedy series’ 'Ramy,' 'Shrill' and 'Pen 15' that our subscribers are looking for hilarious, unique and engaging programming,” Hulu’s Senior Vice President of Originals Craig Erwich said in a press release. “'Letterkenny' checks all of these boxes and then some. Since we first premiered season one last summer, the fan-following and conversation around the series have gained exciting momentum. We’re proud to have the show join the Hulu family.”

Created by lead actor Jared Keeso, “Letterkenny” is a half-hour comedy series set in the fictional Canadian small town of the title. It follows Wayne, his sister Katy, and their friends Daryl and Squirrelly Dan as they navigate the antics and conflicts of the town’s lively 5,000-person population, notably made up of “hicks, skids, Christians, and hockey players.” Originally premiering in 2016, the series has since garnered a devoted following for its dense, witty writing and its colorful cast of characters.

The first six seasons of “Letterkenny” are currently streaming on Hulu. The seventh season will premiere on the platform on Oct. 14.
