Default 'MADtv' Revived at The CW for Primetime Series




The new incarnation will feature new castmembers and returning faces who will serve as guest hosts.
MADtv is making a comeback.

The CW is reviving the former Fox late-night series for primetime, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The eight new episodes will feature new castmembers, as well as special appearances from returning cast members who will host the new hourlong installments.

There is no premiere date for the new episodes, which will hail from Telepictures and executive producers David E. Salzman, Mark Teitelbaum and John Montgomery.

“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 Monday in a statement. "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.”

The sketch show enjoyed a 14-year run on Fox from 1995-2009, airing on Saturday nights. The series helped launch the careers of comedians including Alex Borstein (Family Guy), Ike Barinholtz (The Mindy Project), Keegan-Michael Key (Key & Peele), Jordan Peele (Key & Peele), Simon Helberg (The Big Bang Theory) and Orlando Jones (Sleepy Hollow), among others.

Most recently, The CW celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Emmy-winning show with a primetime reunion special that aired in January.

The decision to resurrect MADtv also comes after its longtime home, Fox, launched a new sketch show in March. Party Over Here, from The Lonely Island, also airs on Saturdays like longtime stalwart Saturday Night Live.

Revivals have been a hot trend in TV due to the success of resurrected series like The X-Files and Fuller House, among others.

I think the show will happen around Jan. 2017 and I think Michael Mcdonald will be the show's first guest host.

I feel like it could be earlier, but of course I have no idea. I hope the cast will consist of people who were on season 14 just for the sake of continuity. I think they could get back the likes of Eric Price, Arden Myrin, Johnny Sanchez, Erika Ash, and maybe even Crista Flannigan and Booby Lee. I highly doubt this is what they will do though.

I hope one of those guest appearances goes to Mary Scheer. She seemed really down about not being included in the reunion show. Honestly, I still can't believe we are talking about this right now!

Question I wanted to ask. One, how much do all of you think that this return is due to the growing popularity of Keegan and Jordan through "Key and Peele" and two, what does everyone think about "Key and Peele". I really loved it. Because I was a fan of Keegan and Jordan from the MAD days, I was into that show from the beginning, and it was a delight.

The CW has announced that MADtv 8-episode return will start on July 29 and they post a photo of the new cast.

I hope CW will do well this reboot but it would be hard to top the magic of the original series.

Any talk of the new cast and the new episodes can now be directed in the episode section here. As we get closer to the premiere of the new revival, I will be leading us up to it by making the new cast bios and learning about this new season as we get ready to enter this new MAD era!

Totally missed this one. I can only see the reunion episode on the CW seed. Is there somewhere where I might be able to see the other 8 episodes?

Also does CW plan on continuing the series beyond these 8 episodes?
