TORONTO – ENTERTAINMENT – A decade after the debut of one of Canadian television’s most beloved comedy series, CORNER GAS returns to CTV Dec. 17th.

CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE will make its super-simulcast network premiere just in time for the holidays on Wednesday, Dec. 17 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, CTV Two, and CTV GO.

In the not-to-be-missed two-hour film, the fine folks of Dog River, Saskatchewan return home to the network that made them household names as they face their biggest crisis ever.

CORNER GAS returns to CTV following its series finale on April 13, 2009 when more than 3 million viewers said goodbye to the hit comedy – five years later, still the largest audience on record for a Canadian scripted series.

Leading up to the network premiere of the movie is an all-new ETALK preview special, ETALK PRESENTS CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE, premiering Friday, Dec. 12 at 7 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO. And if that isn’t enough to fill the tanks of viewers craving more “Gas”, CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE debuts Monday, Dec. 22 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The Comedy Network, following an all-day marathon of fan favourite episodes, starting at 6 a.m. ET. A special sneak peek of the movie is also airing on The Movie Network Monday, Dec. 8 at 9 p.m. ET.

“CORNER GAS holds a very special place in our hearts, both at CTV and The Comedy Network, and with the loyal and passionate fans who followed the series for six remarkable seasons,” said Phil King, President – CTV, Sports, an‎d Entertainment Programming. “Released on multiple screens just before the holidays, CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE is a tremendous thank you to viewers who made the hit comedy one of the most successful Canadian TV series ever.”

“We can’t wait to share this special movie with our fans on our 10th anniversary,” said Virginia Thompson, Executive Producer. “Our goal was to give Canadians an opportunity to be part of this film. The response has been overwhelming. It’s been a tremendous experience.”

In anticipation of CORNER GAS: THE MOVIE, a look back at where we left the Dog River gang in the series finale episode and what’s ahead in the new feature film, hitting theatres December 3.
