LOS ANGELES (AP) The sketch comedy series "MADtv" is making a comeback.
The CW network said it will air eight new one-hour episodes. The show's format will include its signature pop-culture parodies and "politically incorrect humor," the network said Monday.
Cast members were not announced, but CW said the reincarnated "MADtv" will star up-and-coming comedy voices. The show's hosts will be cast members from the original late-night series, which aired on Fox from 1995 to 2009.
Episodes from that 14-season run are available to stream on CW Seed, the CW's digital network. Among the many celebrities who appeared on the show: Jack Black, Halle Berry, George Carlin and Jay Z.
A premiere date for the new "MADtv" was not announced.
