The crack squad of deputies from Reno, Nevada are back on the case when Reno 911! returns to life on Quibi.
Announced by Comedy Central Productions and Quibi, season seven of the beloved comedy series is coming to the new streaming platform with series creators and stars Robert Ben Garant, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Thomas Lennon on board to write and star. So, where are former Reno 911! stars Niecy Nash, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Cedric Yarbrough, Mary Birdsong and Carlos Alazraqui? Additional casting will be announced at a later date.
"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," Lennon said in a statement. "Quibi's short format seems custom made for our show."
Quibi, which is set to launch in 2020, is a mobile-first streaming platform. Each of its original shows are designed to be viewed on the go.
Reno 911! ran for six seasons and spawned a big screen movie all about the men and women of the Reno sheriff's department. Each episode featured the officers going out on calls, with cameras following them. Think Cops, but funny.
"We are very excited to partner with Ben, Kerri and Tom, three of the most gifted multi-hyphenates in comedy, to bring more of their iconic series Reno 911! to the world," Sarah Babineau and Jonas Larsen, Comedy Central's co-heads of original content said in a joint statement. "Fans demanded this for a long time and Comedy Central Productions and Quibi are thrilled to help answer that kind of 911 call."
Danny DeVito, Peter Principato, Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher are all executive producers on the show.
"I couldn't say it better than Sarah and Jonas, and I for one will sleep soundly knowing Reno 911! is back on the beat keeping our streets safe once again," Doug Herzog of Quibi said in a statement.
