Reno 911! Is Coming Back, And It Has A New Format
The mockumentary series has been greenlit for Season 7 by new streaming platform Quibi.
The much-loved mockumentary series Reno 911! is a pastiche of law enforcement reality shows that ran for six seasons between 2003 and 2009. It has now been announced that the series has been greenlit for a new season.
The next season of Reno 911! will be released onto Quibi, the upcoming streaming platform that will feature videos that run no longer than 10 minutes. While the previous seasons of the show featured 22-minute episodes, the fragmented nature of the series should lend itself to this format. The new season doesn't yet have a release date, but Quibi is set to launch in April.
In a statement, Reno 911! writer and star Thomas Lennon said, "Reno 911! holds a special place in our hearts, and it will be a delight to get the original cast back together for 're-boot goofin.' Hopefully Nick Swardson can still roller skate. Quibi's short format seems custom made for our show."
This news follows the announcement of 50 States of Fright, a horror anthology that will also release onto Quibi. The series will revolve around urban legends from around the country, and the first teaser was released earlier this month.
Quibi will launch on April 6. The cost of the service will be $5 a month with ads or $8 a month without. It will launch with 50 original shows, including reboots of MTV's Singled Out and Punk'd. Additionally, there is a Legends of the Hidden Temple revamp for adults coming to the service as well.
