The Kids in the Hall is coming back. The Canadian sketch comedy series is coming to Prime Video this week, but is it suitable for the kids in the house?
With the word “kids” in the title, you would think that The Kids in the Hall is going to be suitable for all ages. That’s not always the case, which is why it’s so important to check in on an age rating to determine if it’s going to be something for you to watch with your kids.
We’re fully expecting this series to be just like the original. After all, it’s the same group of comedians bringing the revival to life. Why would it be any different? This is going to affect who you let watch the series with you.
The Kids in the Hall age rating
The original series was given a TV-PG certificate. This suggests that it is suitable for the whole family, although younger children will want to watch it with adult supervision. In Canada, it was given a G certificate, which is similar. However, some countries gave the series an 18 certificate.
Parents on a whole suggest that it is for 15+. This is due to some of the language that was uncensored when the show was originally on the air. There were a lot of swear words, including the F-bomb and the S-word. There isn’t the use of the C-word, and we don’t expect that to be in the new series.
You’ll want to look at some of the sketches from the original The Kids in the Hall series. This will give you an idea of what to expect now to determine if this is going to be something for you and your kids.
