There are rivaling groups in town – Hicks, Skids, Hockey players and Christians in town, and most of the show`s based on everybody yapping away and occasionally getting into fights for random reasons.
Reviews and renewal prospects
All six half-hour episodes of Letterkenny premiered simultaneously on February 7, 2016 on Crave TV, when they were made available for streaming.
