Happy Canada Day, eh? In our books there’s no better way to celebrate the country than with a brand new six-pack of Letterkenny episodes featuring our favourite hicks, hockey players and skids.
That’s right. Wayne, Daryl and the rest of the farm gang are back, and this time they’ve traded in their fruit stand for a sled shack… as they tend to do when it’s wintertime out in the small town. The new episodes, which feature guest-stars Adrian Holmes (19-2) and Sarah Gadon (Enemy) all drop on Canada Day, giving us all plenty of reasons to celebrate.
It sounds like these episodes will be slammed with action, too. We’re about to meet “les Hiques,” who are the Quebec versions of our famed heroes. There’s Jean Guy (Sebastien Huberdeau) and Jean-Carl (Alexandre Landry) who are the French alter egos of Wayne and Daryl, with French versions of Dan and Katy coming to town too.
Is anyone else reminded of Seinfeld’s Bizarro World?
