Canadian sitcom ‘Letterkenny’ revolves around the lives of the residents of the fictional eponymous rural community, which Keeso modeled after his own hometown of Listowel, Ontario. Created, written, and starring Jared Keeso, the show was initially a YouTube web series named ‘Letterkenny Problems.’ In March 2015, it was picked up by Crave. The series made its debut on the network in February 2016. It has also been broadcast on The Comedy Network.
Hulu has been streaming ‘Letterkenny’ since July 2018. In May 2019, they made it official by gaining the broadcasting rights to the series and future seasons in the US. It has been nearly ten months since the last season dropped on the platform. If you are wondering about the release date of ‘Letterkenny’ season 9, we have got your back!

As with many other TV shows and upcoming films from all over the world, the COVID-19 situation has affected the production of ‘Letterkenny’ as well. The cast was even forced to cancel the rest of the North American dates of the ‘Letterkenny Live!’ 2020 Tour. It is unclear when the show will resume production. As things stand now, ‘Letterkenny’ season 9 is expected to premiere sometime in 2021.
Letterkenny Season 9 Cast: Who is in it?
Keeso leads the cast of ‘Letterkenny’ as Wayne. The series also stars Nathan Dales as Daryl, Michelle Mylett as Katy, K. Trevor Wilson as Squirrelly Dan, Dylan Playfair as Reilly, Andrew Herr portraying Jonesy, Tyler Johnston as Stewart, Dan Petronijevic as McMurray, Melanie Scrofano as Mrs. McMurray, Jacob Tierney as Glen, and Lisa Codrington as Gail.
Some of the other actors who also appear in the show are Kaniehtiio Horn, Evan Stern, Mark Forward, and Kamilla Kowal. In season 8, actors Magalie Lépine-Blondeau, Clark Backo, James Daly, and Tyler Hynes joined the main cast of the show. Almost all the members of the main cast are set to return for season 9.
Letterkenny Season 9 Plot: What can it be About?
Every episode of ‘Letterkenny’ begins with a title card that reads, “There are 5,000 people in Letterkenny. These are their problems.” Deceptively simple and unassuming, the show has a diverse collection of characters, each of whom has quite a few things to say. In the season 8 finale, titled ‘Day Beers Day,’ the relationship between Wayne and Rosie (Backo) achieves a very different level of maturity. The two seem to have become almost intuitively comfortable around each other. Marie-Fred (Lépine-Blondeau) informs Wayne that Dierks (Hynes) has been cheating on Katy, Wayne’s sister. The season ends on a cliffhanger with Wayne and his friends charging at the adulterer.
In season 9, we might get to know what the community has done to Dierks. Katy will most likely move on for good after being cheated on by Dierks. Wayne and Rosie’s relationship might develop further. ‘Letterkenny’ hasn’t had a holiday special since season 6. There is a chance that they might have one in the upcoming season.
