The Journey: From YouTube to OTT
Before setting its feet on Crave, the show saw immense success as a YouTube web series, Letterkenny Problems. Looking at the popularity of this show, Crave, the leading Canadian streaming giant adopted it as its first original series. The show ran for six seasons with six episodes each. Moreover, the fans always got a treat in the form of a holiday special episode between each season.
The series debuted in February 2016. In June 2018, Hulu acquired the U.S. streaming rights to the show. The love Letterkenny has received till now is evident in the number of awards it has won. Along with 20 Canadian Screen Awards nominations, it has won 7, including an award for the Best Comedy Series.
Letterkenny: Dig Deep into the General Plot
Letterkenny is a Canadian sitcom created by Jared Keeso. The show follows the life of residents of Letterkenny, a fictional rural community in Ontario, with a prime focus on the lives of Wayne, Katy, Dan, and Daryl. According to Keeso, the idea of Letterkenny is inspired by his hometown Listowel, Ontario.
The rural Canadian town Letterkenny is home to five thousand people who identify themselves with one of three groups- the Hicks, the Skids, and the Hockey Players. All three groups are at loggerheads with one another, and it gives rise to constant feuds that tickle our funny bones.
According to the insiders, the latest season of Letterkenny is full of funny elements revolving around the Skid business, an invasion of influencers, mysterious things at the Church Bake Sale, the Degens, and some new guests.
Meet the Cast and the Crew
Letterkenny will not be Letterkenny without its original cast from all the previous seasons. And so, the primary cast will be a part of this latest season. However, as the story moves forward, we will see many new faces joining the Letterkenny residents.
Jared Keeso or Shoresy will be seen as Wayne, Michelle Mylett as Katy, Nathan Dales as Daryl, and K. Trevor Wilson as Squirrelly Dan. Furthermore, Dylan Playfair will play Reilly. We will also see Tyler Johnston as Stewart, Andrew Herr as Jonesy, Evan Stern as Roald, Patrick McNeil as Connor, Daniel Petronijevic as McMurray, Lisa Codrington as Gail, Jacob Tierney as Glen, and Danny VanZandwyck as Darien. Additionally, the other names associated with this season include Mark Forward and Tiio Horn.
Evan Stern even posted a photo of his Letterkenny Skid gang on Instagram and captioned it- “The boys are back in town.”
Letterkenny Season 11: The Storyline
As we know, the series depicts the life of a Canadian family living in Letterkenny. “There are five thousand people in Letterkenny.”- Of course, we know this too, but you will keep hearing it again and again before every episode.
Furthermore, the general plot of Letterkenny revolves around the lives of Wayne and Katy, operating a small farm and how Wayne keeps trying to keep his sister away from her friends he does not like. And the three groups- indigenous, farmers, and drug users never stop fighting. However, the exact storyline of the latest season is still under wraps.
The makers are doing a great job in preserving the content of the eleventh season from their fans so as to not spoil the surprises and keep the excitement and fun intact when the series hits the screen. But of course, we can expect new faces to join the three gangs and indulge in heated altercations now and then.
Additionally, we will also see more attempts on the part of Wayne to keep Katy, Jonesy, and Reilly away. It will churn out some interesting elements.
We should leave the predictions aside and wait for the season to adorn our screens so we can have a Merry Christmas.
Shoresy: The Much-Needed Spinoff of Letterkenny
Shoresy, also created by Keeso, is a spinoff series that shows the chronicles of Shoresy, the most famous character of Letterkenny (played by Keeno himself). The show traces the story of Shoresy, who finds himself in Sudbury, as a member of Sudbury Bulldogs, a struggling Triple A-level ice hockey team. The show debuted on Hulu and Crave in May 2022. The first season had six episodes.
The audience received Shoresy with open arms. Just like Letterkenny, this spinoff series also received love from both- the audience and critics alike. The visual jokes became the talk of the town.
The biggest highlight of the show was casting women in empowering positions in a male-dominated domain, hockey. This powerful, stereotype-challenging idea was loved by one and all. Furthermore, the audience also loved the organic depiction of indigenous characters on the show.
The residents of Letterkenny are as eager as you to meet you again. If you are not yet aware of their antics, catch the last ten seasons of the show on Crave and Hulu. Watching Shoresy, the spinoff, before the eleventh season arrives is also a great idea.
