Letterkenny is a Canadian television sitcom created by Jared Keeso, developed and written primarily by Keeso and Jacob Tierney, directed by Tierney, and starring Keeso alongside Nathan Dales, Michelle Mylett, and K. Trevor Wilson. The series began as a YouTube web series titled Letterkenny Problems, and it was commissioned as a television series by Crave in March 2015. It debuted in February 2016, and later also aired on The Comedy Network.[1] The show follows the residents of Letterkenny, a fictional rural community in Ontario loosely based on Keeso's hometown of Listowel, Ontario.[1]

In June 2021, production began on the tenth and eleventh seasons, and the spin-off series Shoresy was announced.[2]

In the United States, Letterkenny is distributed by Hulu and the first two seasons debuted on July 13, 2018.[3] Subsequent seasons were added on December 27, 2018.[4] In May 2019, Hulu acquired exclusive rights to the series and future seasons in the United States.[5]

At the 5th Canadian Screen Awards in 2017, the series won the award for Best Comedy Series.[6]

Overview[edit]

Letterkenny revolves around a small rural Canadian community of the same name, and most episodes open with the text: "There are 5000 people in Letterkenny. These are their problems." The series focuses on siblings Wayne and Katy,[a] who run a small farm and produce stand with help from Wayne's friends Daryl and Squirrely Dan.[b] It also focuses on ice hockey players Reilly and Jonesy, two best friends who are involved in an on-and-off polyamorous relationship with Katy. Episodes deal with small-town life amongst different types of people: the farmers (the "hicks"), the out-of-towners who make up the local ice hockey team, the town's closeted minister, the drug addicts (the "skids"), members of the nearby First Nation reserve (the "natives"), the local Mennonites and Québécois. Plots often revolve around Wayne defending his reputation as "the toughest guy in Letterkenny", the exploits of the town's hockey team who rarely win, Wayne's attempts to break up Katy's relationships with various men he dislikes, the skids' schemes to rip off the residents of both Letterkenny and the natives, and Wayne's dating life after dumping his high school sweetheart who cheated on him. Subverting the usual trope of small-town residents being less intelligent than others, one of the show's running jokes is that almost every character possesses the ability to think quickly and come up with a continual barrage of wordplay and puns, as well as have sophisticated views on worldly topics.

Cast and characters[edit]

Production[edit]

The series is filmed in Sudbury, Ontario.[7] Letterkenny is the first original series commissioned by Crave,[8] and premiered on that platform on February 7, 2016.[9]

The show has its roots in Letterkenny Problems, a short-format web series created by Keeso and released on YouTube in 2013.[10] The original Letterkenny Problems consisted almost entirely of Keeso and Dales trading off comedic one-liners while simply standing in various locations.[11] Letterkenny Problems garnered a Canadian Screen Award nomination for Best Original Fiction Program or Series Created for Digital Media at the 2nd Canadian Screen Awards in 2014.[8] The town of Letterkenny portrayed in the series is fictional, and not based on the actual ghost town in Renfrew County.[12]

Tierney and Michael Dowse are also involved in the production of the series.[1] Tierney also has a supporting role as Pastor Glen in the series, whose cast also includes Michelle Mylett, Dylan Playfair, Andrew Herr, Tyler Johnston, Lisa Codrington, Alexander De Jordy, Kaniehtiio Horn and K. Trevor Wilson.[13]

In March 2016, Letterkenny was renewed for a second season of six episodes.[14] In August, just weeks after production wrapped on Season 2, CraveTV announced that they had ordered a third season.[15] In March 2017, a St. Patrick's Day special episode, "St. Perfect's Day" was released.[16] The third season, shot during the winter season, was released on Canada Day, July 1, 2017.[17][18] In October 2017, a Halloween episode was released,[19] and it was announced that the series had a new media partner which agreed to a production commitment for 40 new episodes, a 26 city Letterkenny Live! tour beginning in February 2018, and the expansion of Letterkenny merchandise.[20] A fourth season of six episodes was released in December 2017.[21] The six-episode fifth season was released in June 2018.[22]

The Letterkenny Christmas special was released in November 2018, followed by the 6-episode Season 6 in December. The Valentine's Day Special was released in February 2019, followed by the 6-episode Season 7 in October 2019. Season 8 (7 episodes) was released in December 2019, and Season 9 (7 episodes) was released in December 2020.[23][24] In September 2020, seasons 10 and 11 were confirmed, with filming planned to begin in August 2020 but were delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[25] In June 2021, production began on seasons 10 and 11 and it was also announced that Shoresy, the hockey player voiced by Keeso but whose face has not been shown in Letterkenny, will be the lead in his own spinoff series, Shoresy.[2][26]

Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

John Doyle of The Globe and Mail called the series "refreshing and intoxicating", and "funny, mad, droll, childish, and spiky." Focusing on the show's characteristic use of often thick Ontario dialect, he wrote that "Not since Trailer Park Boys launched have we heard the flavourful, salty Canadian vernacular used with such aplomb and abandon"; but also that "Almost all the conversations are raw comedy and utterly plausible as small-town guy talk, not just in Canada but in villages and parishes wherever the grass grows."[10] Alan Sepinwall of Rolling Stone called the show "marvelously goofy" and "strange, simple, [and] delightful".[43]

The series has also been praised for its complex and fully-rounded depiction of its First Nations characters, which the producers attribute to the show's practice of involving the actors directly in the creation, writing and costuming of their characters.[44]

Ratings[edit]

CraveTV has stated that Letterkenny's debut was the biggest debut of any series on their platform since it launched in 2014, and that as of March 10, 2016, nearly one in three subscribers have watched the series.[14]
