In honor of the show’s return, Screen Rant spoke exclusively to Codrington and Mylett to discuss Letterkenny season 11, Canada’s unique love of chips, getting emotional for the first time in the series and the possibility of a spin-off show crossover Shoresy.

Michelle Mylett & Lisa Codrington on Letterkenny Season 11

Screen Rant: I’m excited to chat with you both again for Letterkenny. I love that the opening episode is about breaking down chip flavor, it’s a debate that I feel like no show has ever tackled in this serious way. We’ll start with Lisa and then Michelle, what was it like putting together this bottle episode of you all arguing?

Lisa Codrington: It was a lot of fun, it was a blast, like I take chips very seriously. I love chips, so I’m here for a very serious and silly, full on debate about what is the best flavor of chips. I totally got it, there was no like, “How is this? Why do people eat chips?” I thought, “I’m here. I get it. No work required, let’s discuss the chips.” [I’ve got] also strong emotions.

Michelle Mylett: Yes, it was nice to be together all day, and a bit bizarre, it’s the most emotion we’ve ever seen in Letterkenny between the characters, and it’s over chips, but I think it’s a real Canadian thing. , also. We have a lot of crazy chip flavors up here and we’re proud of our chips, which sounds sad, but I guess it’s kind of true. It was a really fun day, it was like shooting a play. We had a lot of extras there and it was over the top and I think I cried actual tears in a couple of takes of the dill pickle chips. So we really went there.

Lisa Codrington: It was amazing, the tears over dill pickles. It was a moment, it was beautiful. Big tears.

Do you feel as passionate about dill pickle chips in real life, or do you have a different flavor that you’re particularly fond of?

Michelle Mylett: I may not cry over dill pickles, but dill pickles are my favorite chip, and Jared knew that. So I think that’s why he generously gave it to me.

Lisa Codrington: I’m very basic, my favorite chip is like regular ripple but like a good strong salt. It can’t be a reduced salt regular ripple, it has to be like full salt.

At that point, you might as well not even have chips, right?

Lisa Codrington: Exactly, we just need potatoes!

As you mentioned, Michelle, it’s great to have seen everyone come together in that scene, and one thing I always find interesting about the big group scenes is that I’m curious if there’s one actor in this whole group, whether it is each other. or someone else that you always have the hardest time doing a scene with just because they’re so good at making you break?

Michelle Mylett: For me it’s the slips, it’s Tyler and Evan’s dynamic, I just find it so silly and their little bursts of choreography. Just knowing them well and knowing how much time they spend together, and their personal dynamic as well as their on-screen dynamic is eerily similar. They just crack me up a lot.

Lisa Codrington: I agree, I feel like those are the slips for me as well. The choreography of their existence is just fun and ridiculous and you never know what will happen every time. It always rises. I also think Glenn is so wild and ridiculous too and you never know what’s going to happen. I think they really are [get me], and a little bit of Coach. There are a lot of people, come to think about it. [Laughs]

Michelle Mylett: Jim Dickens, he makes me [crack up].

Lisa Codrington: Jim Dickens too, yes.

I was just talking to Tyler and Evan and they said how Alex will even improve in both the beginning of the end of his Jim Dickens scenes. Did you both get the chance to do that throughout this season, and is there a particular moment that you loved getting to improvise for your characters?

Michelle Mylett: It’s a beautifully written show, and because the pacing is so specific, we stick to the page for the most part. That said, when we practice there are opportunities to play or bring an idea to the table. Sometimes it’s included and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. I think Jim Dickens is great [for that], because he auctions a lot of the time, so it’s like he can ad-lib and go as crazy as he wants, and it works within that setting. But when you have that fast back and forth, and it’s so dependent on tempo, in almost the singing quality of Letterkenny, you can’t really get going because it screws everyone else up. So yes, as much as there have been some moments where people have brought ideas to the table and they’ve been included, nine times out of 10 we have to practice that.

Lisa Codrington: I agree, I can’t really think of any kind of moment that I’ve been proud of, I think a lot of times it would be maybe physical things, or a look, or something like that that’s of new and changing things. But the dialogue, in my experience, pretty much sticks to the page as well.

It seems, as you both say, a very meticulous pace to keep to, but I’m glad you’re at least given the opportunity to have a little bit of freedom here and there to throw in some stuff.

Michelle Mylett: To the point that Lisa and I actually – I forget why we were doing this, what were we doing?

Lisa Codrington: I can’t even remember, but we…

Michelle Mylett: We worked together on something in an earlier season and I was like, “Oh my god, we should do that to celebrate our win, or whatever, the handshake from The Parent Trap.” So we practiced the Parent Trap handshake and we were both like little kids, we were like, “Jacob, can we do this?” And they said, “Okay?” So they let us do it and it came into the season and we felt very happy with it.

Lisa Codrington: We worked ridiculously hard on it, we really put in the work, so yeah, I’m glad it worked out.

It’s amazing, it’s not an easy handshake to recreate.

Michelle Mylett: Practice hard enough, you can do it too.

Lisa Codrington: That’s true. It’s true, I just have to put in the work.

Alex McCooeye in Letterkenny

I know Jim Dickens and Gail were an item for a little bit, and I know with the leaked nude episode it’s been brought up, but Lisa, what do you think is going on with Gale and Dickens? Do you think they’re still a thing, or do you think they’re kind of exploring separate paths at this point?

Lisa Codrington: I think it’s different for both of them. I think Gail is always like, “Look, I’m happy to be here, but I’m also happy to be here.” She’s doing her thing, she’s got a lot of options that she’s exploring, I think you can always hold out hope for Jim and Gail. But I think, as Jim says, he would never have done it. But who knows, they might get back together, maybe not, I just think Gail has a lot of people to chill with, so he’s not the only one.

Michelle Mylett: I like Gail and Jim together.

Lisa Codrington: I know it’s very sweet.

Michelle Mylett: I think he grounds you, or grounds Gail. [Chuckles]

Lisa Codrington: I’m not Gail, we’re not our characters. [Laughs]

When they were first shown as a couple, I was like, “Oh, they’re actually a really good couple,” so I hope to see more of them in the future. Speaking of which, so often we don’t hear about the renewal of the show until you’re already halfway through filming. Have there been more episodes coming?

Michelle Mylett: I don’t know what to say, honestly, we just finished filming in October. But yeah, I don’t know what to say. [Laughs]

Lisa Codrington: Yes, we finished filming in October. [Laughs]

Michelle Mylett: So beyond that, we don’t know what’s going on.

There was also a spin-off Shoresyand with season 2 announced, would you both ever want to visit his show and see what he’s up north with his new characters?

Michelle Mylett: Yes, I would love to go and see our friends over there. Tiio is, I think, a producer on it, and Jacob’s directing and Jonathan Torrens are on board, and then of course Jared Keeso, so it’s always nice to have them visit. But yeah, I don’t know if the two worlds will ever collide, I’m not really sure about that show.

Lisa Codrington: Yes, I do [feel] likewise, who knows how far away Sudbury and Letterkenny are. Can Letterkenny people get there, is there a bus? Who knows? But definitely, yeah, I want to follow along and see what happens on that show, and all the fun similarities and differences that they play with, I’m always interested and curious to see.
