Reno 911 is officially heading to Quibi.
The Comedy Central classic is getting a second life and a seventh season at the forthcoming short-form platform.
It has been more than a decade since the show from creators and cast members Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon, and Kerri Kenney-Silver last aired. The three are on board to write and star in the new season.
“Reno 911! holds a special place in our hearts, and it will be a delight to get the original cast back together for ‘re-boot goofin,’” Lennon said. “Hopefully Nick Swardson can still roller skate. Quibi’s short format seems custom made for our show.”
“We are very excited to partner with Ben, Kerri and Tom, three of the most gifted multi-hyphenates in comedy, to bring more of their iconic series Reno 911! to the world,” said Sarah Babineau and Jonas Larsen, Comedy Central’s co-heads of original content. “Fans demanded this for a long time and Comedy Central Productions and Quibi are thrilled to help answer that kind of 911 call.”
Quibi is set to launch in April, 2020.
