Pitter patter, let’s get at’er: Letterkenny season 7 has a home.

On Thursday, Hulu announced that the much-adored Canadian sitcom will return as a Hulu Original series. Thanks to a new licensed deal, Hulu now has exclusive U.S. streaming rights to all upcoming seasons of Letterkenny. For those who need to catch up, the first six seasons of the show are streaming currently on Hulu.

Letterkenny, named after the fictional small Canadian town in which the show is set, revolves around Wayne (played by show creator Jared Keeso) and his handful of friends and neighbors. The show is known for very dry humor with quick delivery but slow pacing. (If you need a litmus test, we might suggest watching this “super cold open” teaser.)

“We know from the current success of our Original comedy series’ Ramy, Shrill and Pen15 that our subscribers are looking for hilarious, unique and engaging programming,” said Hulu’s Senior Vice President of Originals, Craig Erwich, said in a press release “Letterkenny checks all of these boxes and then some. Since we first premiered season one last summer, the fan-following and conversation around the series has gained exciting momentum. We’re proud to have the show join the Hulu family.”

Where will we find Wayne and company when the new episodes roll around? Hulu revealed that season 7 will find the Hicks launching an agricultural call-in show, naturally.

The upcoming six-episode season 7 will premiere on Monday, Oct. 14. Additionally, starting June 20, the cast of the award-winning comedy series are bringing the Letterkenny Live! tour to New York, Chicago and Minneapolis. That’s a Texas sized 10-4.
