The CW is reviving ‘MADtv’ as a prime-time series
“MADtv” is returning to television as a prime-time series.
The CW announced Monday that it has ordered eight one-hour episodes of the sketch comedy series that will “star up-and-coming new comedy voices” as well as appearances by returning cast members.
The network did not announce a premiere date for the new “MADtv.”
Premiering in 1995, “MADtv” aired on late night on Fox for 14 seasons and helped launch the careers of Orlando Jones, Mo Collins, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele.
