MAD tv revival is coming to the CW

Posted on

Fox

The CW is making dreams come true with a revival of the Emmy Award-winning sketch comedy series MADtv.

The network announced Monday that it has picked up eight hour-long episodes of the show, complete with the pop-culture parodies and politically incorrect humor fans expect. Additionally, the show will feature both new and returning cast members.

Previously, MADtv aired on Fox from 1995–2009; David Salzman is set to return as executive producer/showrunner. “The MADtv franchise is as vibrant as ever thanks largely to social and digital media appealing to a fan base numbering in the millions that relates to the show’s brand of authentic and irreverent cross-cultural comedy,” Salzman said in a press release. “We will continue to present the hard-hitting, laugh-out-loud, wall-to-wall pop culture parody our fans expect, but in a fresh, new way.”
