23 years. That’s how long it has been since we last saw the Kids in the Hall on television. That’s honestly 22 years 364 days too long.
Kevin McDonald revealed in an interview with News-Press.com that Lorne Michaels has been increasingly interested in bringing the Kids back for a short run, limited engagement, sketch series. Netflix or Amazon could be a wonderful platform for its revival.
“You’re the first guy to know this,” McDonald says. “Last night, before I got on the plane, we got a Kids in the Hall group message to all of us. (Producer) Lorne Michaels wants us to do what Mr. Show did, and do like six episodes of sketches for something like Netflix.
“It’s so at the beginning, we’re not able to even get conference calls together. There’s always one or two of us that are kind of busy. And because we are who we are, there’s always one of us against it.
“But I think, right now, there’s no one against it. … And I’ll try to get it going, because I’m the one who’s supposed to get it going. … It’s super exciting!”
Since going off the air in 1994, the cast members have reunited in various movies, mini-series, tours and late night appearances.
