Schitt’s Creek to stop at S6

Schitt’s Creek will conclude with its sixth run

The creators of comedy series Schitt’s Creek have revealed the show’s forthcoming sixth season will be its last.

The series comes from Not A Real Company Productions, the Toronto-based firm founded by the father and son creative team of Eugene and Daniel Levy, who also star in the show alongside Catherine O’Hara and Annie Murphy.

Airing on the CBC in Canada and Pop in the US and also available internationally via Netflix, it follows a wealthy video store magnate who is forced to relocate his family to a small town he once bought.

Co-creators Eugene and Daniel Levy said in a joint statement that they had decided the sixth season, which will air in 2020, will be its last.

“We are so grateful to have been given the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with a final chapter that we had envisioned from the very beginning.

“It’s not lost on us what a rare privilege it is in this industry to get to decide when your show should take its final bow,” the pair said.

Sally Catto, general manager of programming at the CBC, added: “Dan and Eugene have created a brilliant and irreverent series that has struck a powerful chord with audiences in Canada and around the world, fuelled by stellar writing, sharp humour, an outstanding cast and a wardrobe for the ages.”

As well as Eugene and Daniel Levy, Schitt’s Creek is exec produced by Andrew Barnsley, Fred Levy, David West Read and Ben Feigin. It is produced in association with the CBC and Pop TV and distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
