Awww snap! A “Reno 911!” revival has been set at Quibi for the seventh season.
The hilarious Comedy Central series, which was a parody of “Cops,” originally ran from 2003 to 2009 and followed the misadventures and shenanigans of a group of deputies working for the Reno Sheriff’s Department
Original cast members Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon, and Kerri Kenney-Silver will write the new season.
Lennon gushed, “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. Hopefully, Nick Swardson can still roller skate. Quibi’s short format seems custom made for our show.”
It’s unclear who else from the original cast will return for the revival, but I know Niecy Nash is down for it.
Last month, she asked her Instagram fans, “Should we do it again or nah? ??#Reno911”
Received a resounding, “Yes!”
Here’s the scoop on Quibi via Variety:
Quibi is set to launch in April 2020. The service will offer subscribers access to original short-form content in a mobile-only viewing experience. The service will have two pricing tiers at launch. The first will cost $4.99 with one pre-roll ad before each video segment — a 10-second ad if the video is less than 5 minutes and a 15-second ad for 5-10 minute videos. The ad-free option will cost $7.99
