At last! The citizens of Reno, Nevada can walk the streets safely once more as Reno 911!, it was announced today, is returning for more episodes!
Original creators/cast members Thomas Lennon, Robert Ben Garant, and Kerri Kenney-Silver are set to return to the series. Peter Principatato, Danny Devito, Stacey Sher, and Michael Shamberg are set to executive produce, in connection with Artists First, Jersey Films, and Comedy Central Productions.
“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 in a statement, who are in charge of original content for Comedy Central. “Fans demanded this for a long time and Comedy Central Productions and Quibi are thrilled to help answer that kind of 911 call.”
The show, we imagine, will be launched along with the new streaming network in the spring of 2020. So we have that to all look forward to!
