The show that originally aired from 1988-1995 in the United States and Canada, will return with the five original members of the comedy troupe – Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson. Executive producer Lorne Michaels will also return. Past episodes of the series are available for purchase on Amazon but aren’t currently included in the Prime Video package. A premiere date for the new iteration hasn’t been announced. “Even after 30 years, The Kids in the Hall has retained its brilliance and originality,” Michaels said Thursday in a statement. “We are happy to be bringing back all of the original Kids for the new series.” “We’ve been investing in Canada for several years and are excited to add to that momentum by making The Kids in the Hall the first Canadian Amazon original series,” said James Farrell, vp international originals for Amazon Studios. “The Kids in the Hall is an iconic show with a deep-rooted fan base. Several of our global hits, including The Boys, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan and The Expanse, have been filmed in Canada, and we are looking forward to continuing our work with talented producers and crew teams across the country to bring this series to our Prime members around the world.” The Kids in the Hall will be the first series for Amazon to originate from Canada. It will join other Amazon originals that includes the Josh Brolin-led drama Outer Range, the much-anticipated Lord of the Rings series, Frank of Ireland, a series adaptation of A League of Their Own, the rock drama Daisy Jones and the Six and a Jack Reacher series.
