Crack a cold one: ‘Letterkenny’ grabs U.S. distribution deal with Hulu


TORONTO — Canada’s hoser heroes on “Letterkenny” are headed stateside under a new streaming agreement with Hulu.

The beer-swigging comedy has struck a deal to make seasons 1 and 2 of the series available through the U.S. streaming service on July 13.

It’s the first time “Letterkenny” has been made officially available south of the border.

Shot in and around Sudbury, Ont., “Letterkenny” stars Jared Keeso and Nathan Dales as best buds in a small town that lives for hockey, partying and its population of colourful characters.

“Letterkenny” scored Canadian Screen Awards for best writing and best direction under the comedy program or series categories earlier this year.

The show, created by Keeso, will return to CraveTV with a fifth season on June 29.
