IMDb’s free streaming service, IMDb TV, has announced that it will be the exclusive home of Corner Gas Animated, an IMDb Original series. Corner Gas Animated is based on Canada’s most popular comedy brand of all-time, bringing beloved characters from Corner Gas to life in a new, reimagined way.

Corner Gas Animated is joined in the U.S. on IMDb TV by Canada’s series, Corner Gas, including 107 episodes and the 90-minute feature film, Corner Gas: The Movie. The live-action franchise features dozens of guest stars, including two Canadian Prime Ministers.

Corner Gas is already known and loved by many across North America and we couldn’t be happier for Corner Gas Animated to join our family of IMDb Originals, bringing even more ways for viewers to be entertained,” said Mark Eamer, Vice President of IMDb TV. “Corner Gas fans can now enjoy the entire Corner Gas franchise for free in one place as it finds its new exclusive home on IMDb TV in the U.S.”

Created, starring and executive produced by award-winning showrunner and stand-up comedian Brent Butt, the Corner Gas franchise centers around the unique characters of fictional rural town Dog River. The ensemble cast stars Brent Butt as Brent Leroy, owner of a roadside service station, with Gabrielle Miller as Lacey Burrows, Fred Ewanuick as Hank Yarbo, Eric Peterson as Oscar Leroy, Lorne Cardinal as Sgt. Davis Quinton, Tara Spencer-Nairnas as Constable Karen Pelly, Nancy Robertson as Wanda Dollard, and Corrine Koslo who replaces the late Janet Wright as Emma Leroy.

The new IMDb Original series Corner Gas Animated boasts all-star cameos like actor Michael J. Fox, comedian Russell Peters, singer/songwriters Jann Arden and Sarah McLachlan, and astronaut Chris Hadfield.

“Americans asked us to bring Corner Gas Animated to the U.S.,” said Executive Producer Virginia Thompson. “We promised it was coming. Now it’s here! The all-new animated series, along with the live-action sitcom and movie will be available all in one place. A big thank you to IMDb TV for being our brand champion in the U.S.”

Beginning October 15, 24 episodes of Corner Gas Animated season one and two will be available for the first time in the U.S. on the IMDb TV.
