The Reno 911! squad is all back together as seen in our first sneak peek at the Quibi revival of the comedy series. After airing for six seasons on Comedy Central, Reno 911! came to an end in 2009, and at the time, it appeared that would be the last we'd ever see of television's most hilarious police officers. It has since been revealed the entire cast would be reuniting for a revival series on the new streaming service Quibi, which is soon set to arrive with a launch set for April of this year.
Though we knew Quibi was resurrecting Reno 911!, we've been waiting with bated breath to see some footage from the new episodes of the show. By releasing a new sneak peek video of the revival on YouTube, Quibi has now finally given us our first look at the new Reno 911!, and although it's been over a decade since we last saw these characters, they really haven't changed much at all. The new footage is just as hilarious as I remember the series from the early 2000s as well, and the Quibi revival definitely feels like a direct continuation of the original series. You can watch the sneak peek video below.
As we can see, the whole squad is present for the new series, including series creators Thomas Lennon as Lt. Jim Dangle, Robert Ben Garant as Travis Junior, and Kerri Kenney-Silver as Trudy Wiegel. Also returning to reprise their roles are Niecy Nash as Raineesha Williams, Cedric Yarbrough as Deputy S. Jones, Wendi McLendon-Covey as Clementine Johnson, Mary Birdsong as Cherisha Kimball, Ian Roberts (Sergeant Jack Declan), Joe Lo Truglio (Deputy Frank Rizzo), and Carlos Alazraqui as James Garcia. As some of these characters were controversially killed off in the original series, the Quibi revival will apparently retcon the Comedy Central version's final season to bring back the beloved characters.
Because fans have been missing Reno 911! for many years, the creators have been working on a revival for quite some time. There had been rumors that a second movie would be produced, following the previous release of Reno 911: Miami. For whatever reason, the revival attempts didn't make much traction until Quibi got involved, giving the revival a home where fans who remember watching the show years ago can check back in with the officers of the Reno Sheriff's Department.
Quibi is set to launch on April 6. In contrast to other streaming services like Hulu and Netflix, the point of Quibi will be to present bite-sized television seasons, with each "episode" lasting 10 minutes or less in length. This includes the upcoming seventh season of Reno 911!, which will be easy to digest but just as easy to watch in its entirety. Presumably, if the series does well on the service, more new episodes will be produced. It will cost $4.99 per month to subscribe to the service when it launches. The Reno 911! sneak peek preview shown above comes to us from Quibi on YouTube.
