‘Corner Gas’ to wrap up production this week

REGINA — Forty kilometres from nowhere, in the fictional town of Dog River, Saskatchewan, folks are filling up one last time at Canada’s favourite gas station.

That’s because the pumps are closing at “Corner Gas.”

The quirky television show about small town prairie life wraps up production this week on its sixth and final season.

“Corner Gas” creator Brent Butt says it’s a sad time, but if he had any doubt he wouldn’t have pulled the plug.

Butt jokes that he’ll miss the paycheque and having a parking spot — before finally adding that he’ll miss the crew.

Eric Peterson, who plays Oscar, says it’s been a great ride on the little show that unexpectedly became a huge hit.

Peterson says it’s been a magical occurrence for everyone involved.

The final season of the Gemini award-winning show starts October 6th and the series finale will air in April.
