Photograph By CORNER GASS Facebook When CTV approached Brent Butt and his partners about bringing Corner Gas back to the small screen, the Vancouver comedian was admittedly leery.The sitcom — which ran for six seasons and followed the misadventures of gas station owner Brent (Butt), café owner Lacey (Gabrielle Miller), and zany friends and family in the fictional town of Dog River, Saskatchewan — was still universally beloved. It had even spawned a 2014 movie that played to sold-out crowds. Advertisement Login/Register With:center_img Why would Butt want to mess with that kind of legacy?One week to go!!

Are we going to screw up the legacy of this? And I didn’t want to do that. We all thought we needed to do something different or there would be no reason to do it again.”It’s a beautiful day in May of last year.
