The Show Became a Massive Hit After its Jump From YouTube to Crave & Has Been Called a ‘Refreshing & Intoxicating’ Series
Known for its dry humor and quick delivery, the show has continued to gain in popularity since it first aired in 2016. According to The Cinemaholic, Letterkenny has been branded as a “refreshing and intoxicating” series, with a “funny, mad, droll, childish, and spiky” storyline. The show includes a thick Ontario dialect and has a Trailer Park Boys feel to it, although it’s vibe is more “hick” than “trailer trash criminals.”
According to a review by Globe & Mail, “Not since Trailer Park Boys launched have we heard the flavorful, salty Canadian vernacular used with such aplomb and abandon.” Rolling Stone calls the show “marvelously goofy” and “strange, simple, [and] delightful.”
Tune in Monday morning at 12:01 a.m. ET or Tuesday night at 11:01 p.m. CT to catch the season 7 premiere of Letterkenny, only on Hulu.
