‘Letterkenny’ Season 9 release date
Christmas isn’t the only present Santa is bringing us this year. After a lot of will-it-won’t-it speculations, ‘Letterkenny’ has been confirmed to return this year with season 9. Although news regarding season 10 of ‘Letterkenny’ is still a little shaky, Hulu recently announced that season 9 of the Canadian show will premier on 25th December, with all the episodes dropping on Hulu on 26th December. The previous two seasons of ‘Letterkenny’ had premiered in 2019, with season 7 coming out in October and season 8 in December.
Created by Jared Keeso, the Canadian sitcom, ‘Letterkenny’, became a Hulu original just last year and already has season 10 and 11 planned (no sign of them yet though). ‘Letterkenny’ originally began its journey as a web series on “YouTube” known as ‘Letterkenny Problems‘. In 2015, Crave commissioned the web series as a TV series, following which the show premiered with its newfound fancy status in 2016. The story is simple, relatable, and packed full of humour. It follows the residents of the titular town, Letterkenny, a small community, and is said to be loosely based on writer and creator Keeso’s hometown, Lisobel.
‘Letterkenny’ Season 9 plot
Season 9 of ‘Letterkenny’ will, without a doubt, be set in the same quirky little town. The lead cast will hopefully remain the same as the season 9 plot focuses on Daryl, Wayne, Katy, Squirrely Dan, and the other Letterkenny residents. Season 9 will have seven episodes and all of them are scheduled to drop together on the platform on the date of release. According to Hulu, the upcoming season will feature Katy working her “scorched earth dating strategy” back in the town. Meanwhile, Gail is intended to get some action as well. The hockey players could be seen taking lessons in Judaism. Hulu also promises that “the whole town gets really into sleepover activities like movies, board games, and girl games”. Adding to that, we would see a new restaurant setting up camp in the town, raising the competition level. Oh, and Tanis would create her own personal energy drink.
Hulu has already dropped teasers and the trailer for the upcoming season of ‘Letterkenny’, which will definitely make you forget your worries about season 10. The trailers provide a fantastic insight into what a laughter riot season 9 is about to be with a mixed bag of new, old, and inside jokes.
‘Letterkenny’ Season 10 filming yet to take off
Season 10 of ‘Letterkenny’ on Hulu was supposed to hit the grounds this year. Filming was scheduled for August and September. All plans, however, went down the drain with the pandemic killing all the buzz. Like many other shows and productions, ‘Letterkenny’ too had to hit the brakes. The good news is that with things slowly returning to normal, talks of starting the season 10 filming has been going around. It will still take some time, although ‘Letterkenny’ executive producer Mark Montefiore has confirmed that season 10 and season 11 is set to be filmed back-to-back. It will be quick, sharp, and snap.
Montefiore also discussed how the pandemic has affected and forced massive budget cuts, which is also one of the reasons for the delay in the production process of ‘Letterkenny’ Season 10 on Hulu. He said,
“Unfortunately, we had to push our production from this year to next year because of COVID-related insurance issues. COVID means that there are a very few amount of productions that are able to happen right now. COVID expenses to be able to make the set safe have ballooned, and insurance is lacking right now”.
Undoubtedly, ‘Letterkenny’ is still facing certain delays in picking up the filming of season 10 and 11, but we have something to look forward to with season 9 dropping soon on Hulu.
