Deadline reports that Quibi has ordered a new season of Reno 911!, which previously ran for six seasons from 2003 to 2009 on Comedy Central. Series creators and stars Robert Ben Garant, Kerri Kenney-Silver and Thomas Lennon will all return and write the new season. Peter Principato of Artists First will executive produce with Danny DeVito, Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher of Jersey Television.

The series was a COPS parody that followed an inept group of police at the Reno Sheriff’s Department.

Lennon said: “Reno 911! holds a special place in our hearts, and it will be a delight to get the original cast back together for ‘re-boot goofin.’ Hopefully Nick Swardson can still roller skate. Quibi’s short format seems custom made for our show.

Comedy Central co-heads of original content, Sarah Babineau and Jonas Larsen, added: “We are very excited to partner with Ben, Kerri and Tom, three of the most gifted multi-hyphenates in comedy, to bring more of their iconic series Reno 911! to the world. Fans demanded this for a long time and Comedy Central Productions and Quibi are thrilled to help answer that kind of 911 call.

Quibi’s Doug Herzog said: “I couldn’t say it better than Sarah and Jonas, and I for one will sleep soundly knowing Reno 911! is back on the beat keeping our streets safe once again.”
