Corner Gas is coming back. The iconic Canadian sitcom that was set in Saskatchewan is being rebooted into an all-new animated version that will be broadcast on The Comedy Network.
Show producers announced in a news release that they're working on 13 episodes of an animated Corner Gas series that will feature the voices of Brent Butt and most of the cast from the live-action version, which ended its six-season run in 2009.
Returning actors include Gabrielle Miller (Lacey), Eric Peterson (Oscar), Fred Ewanuick (Hank), Lorne Cardinal (Davis) and Tara Spencer-Nairn (Karen). Janet Wright, who played Emma in the sitcom and the 2014 movie, died last month. Casting is underway for a new Emma.
The animated series is set to run on the Comedy Network, starting in 2017-18.
