Rick Moranis to join upcoming SCTV reunion special

Martin Scorsese will direct the special, which explores the enduring legacy of the Emmy Award-winning series

​Rick Moranis will be part of an upcoming reunion special for the sketch comedy series SCTV in Toronto.

Moranis hasn't been as visible on the public stage as some of the other cast members in recent years and wasn't initially expected to be a part of the reunion.

Meanwhile, CTV has announced it's joining Netflix to become the Canadian broadcast partner of the special, which will air in 2019.

Martin Scorsese will direct the special, which explores the enduring legacy of the Emmy Award-winning Canadian series Second City Television. The show ran two seasons on Global and one on CBC before being picked up by NBC. In its final season, it moved to cable and aired on Cinemax in the U.S. and Superchannel in Canada.

SCTV ran from 1976 to 1984 and helped launch the careers of many famed international comic legends, including the late John Candy and Harold Ramis.

The special will air on Netflix in all territories, with the exception of Canada, where it will premiere on CTV.
