This cult series in the nineties returns with its unforgettable creators and actors: Dave Foley, Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Mark McKinney Y Scott Thompson. His absurd humor, which often challenged the viewer, passed all limits with respect and intelligence.

Thompson, who is gay in real life, was emblematic of the way to make humor about minorities without resorting to humiliation or condoning hate.

Among the special guests that this reboot will have are Pete Davidson, Catherine O’Hara, Kenan Thompson, Brandon Ash-Mohammed, Will Forte, Catherine Reitman, Samantha Bee, Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, Jay Baruchel, Mark Hamill Y Colin Mocherie.
