Kenne-Silver is up against Anna Kendrick (Dummy), Jasmine Cephas Jones (#FreeRayshawn), Kaitlin Olson (Flipped), and Rain Valdez (Razor Tongue) for the Emmy Award, other Quibi shows. Competition for the Outstanding Short Form Comedy Or Drama Series includes series such as Better Call Saul, Star Trek: Short Treks, and The Good Place, and Quibi’s Most Dangerous Game.
Reno 911! filmed all of their season’s content before COVID-19 put the industry on pause. Currently, 12 episodes are on Quibi out of the 25.
“They’re done,” Lennon told Comicbook regarding the episodes. “A bizarre thing that happened is we fully finished filming everything right before the quarantine and lockdown, and we actually had several episodes fully done. So all of the post of the vast majority of the episodes was finished by our amazing editors in their houses. We haven’t seen anybody in person in for, it feels like a couple months now, but a lot of the posts was handled. In a terribly dangerous time, it’s also bizarre that we’d never been more perfectly set up to not have to meet and do things, you know?”
The latest season of Reno 911! is available to stream on Quibi, now. Watch the trailer below.
