The Kids in the Hall is a hilarious sketch comedy television series Amazon Prime. It is a revival of the hit series of the same name and features the comedy troupe of the same name, consisting of five comedians. The members write and play both male and female characters in sketches and guest-starred on numerous other comedians. Fans have thoroughly enjoyed seeing their favorite comedy troupe again after so many years and are excited to see them again. Without further ado, here’s everything we know about ‘The Kids in the Hall’ season 2 so far.
The Kids in the Hall Season 2 Release Date
The first season of The Kids in the Hall was released on May 13, 2022 on Amazon Prime. It consists of eight episodes, each lasting 24-26 minutes. Now let’s talk about the possible second season.
As of now, the creators haven’t announced that a second season is in the works. However, given the positive response from viewers and critics to the first episode, chances are the show will return for a second season. Not only that, it’s massive fan demand that has brought the show back after almost 27 years, and that could now lead to a few more seasons of the show.
That being said, there are plenty of modern sketch comedy shows like The Baroness Von Sketch Show and Key & Peele that have been back for at least four seasons. So it could be that The Kids in the Hall follows suit and returns to the streaming platform for another season.
Considering all of these factors, Amazon Prime could soon give the green light for the likely second installment, at the end of summer 2022. How long we have to wait depends on the availability of the cast and crew members as well as the production schedule planned by the creators away. If all goes as decided, The Kids in the Hall season 2 can be expected sometime in the second quarter of 2023.
The Kids in the Hall Season 2 Cast: Who Could Be In?
If Season 2 is confirmed, all of the original members of The Kids in the Hall will likely return, namely Dave Foley, Kevin McDonald, Bruce McCulloch, Mark McKinney and Scott Thompson. Additionally, several guest stars such as Pete Davidson, Catherine O’Hara, Catherine Reitman and Kenan Thompson could return as new characters in new skits. There are also other faces in the cast line-up.
The Kids in the Hall Season 2 Plot: What could it be?
In Season 1, the members of The Kids in the Hall return with all-new ticklish sketches that occasionally feature their classic characters like Gavin, an annoying kid who asks too many questions, and a quirky classic rock DJ. In another skit, viewers get reacquainted with Cath and Kath, two longtime colleagues who constantly complain about their company. Another character making a comeback is Buddy Cole, a sexually explicit man desperate for love.
Many of the skits poked fun at the troubles of middle age and the bizarre trends of the modern world to show that the cast have aged since the original show ended. In addition, relevant social and political issues are addressed in a subtle way and backed with comedy. Additionally, the cast are bringing back their popular superhero sketch, Superdrunk. The potential second season will most likely follow the same format, introducing old and new characters in many more unique skits. In addition, new types of improv segments and spoofs are to be expected.
