The clueless cops of Reno 911! are back for more
It'll be a fine day for law enforcement when RENO 911! returns to Comedy Central for a fourth season, July 9 at 10:30pm. Several key cliffhangers will be resolved in the season premiere, including if Wiegel's husband Craig (a.k.a. the Truckee River Killer) was executed by the state and whether Dangle and Garcia froze to death. What else can we expect from these keystone kops? Future episodes feature Jonesy and Kimball attending a Christian Karaoke mixer and Dangle accepting a wedding invitation from an unexpected source. The queer commander and his rag-tag posse will also be heading to the big screen this fall, when Reno 911! Miami is expected to hit theaters. Lock and load people!
