If you asked me to list the top 10 shows I once loved that I would guess wouldn’t hold up in 2022, The Kids in the Hall would be at the top. And yet, Amazon has revived the series, which originally ran from 1989 to 1995 on Canadian TV and enjoyed a long life in syndication in the US on Comedy Central, for a new season dropping on May 13.

It’s not that I think old episodes of the series are no longer funny; the sketches are as bizarre and off-putting (in a good way) as ever. But a lot of its signature gags—gags that play on gay stereotypes and lots of putting members of the all-male cast in drag for a laugh—are bound to hit different nearly three decades later. That said, the trailer seems to indicate the now sixty-something cast is at least aware of the fact that time has passed them by, even if Amazon hasn’t:

Other goodies coming to Prime Video in May: A new season of The Wilds (May 6), the teens-stranded-in-the-wilderness series that isn’t Showtime’s Yellowjackets; Lovestruck High (May 18), a dating reality series that sends a bunch of adults back to a “high-school-like environment” in search of love, which sounds highly traumatic, if you ask me; and Night Sky (May 20), a sci-fi drama in which Sissy Spacek and J.K. Simmons play a couple who discover a portal to another planet in their basement.

Here’s everything else on tap on Prime Video in May.
