Schitt’s Creek has been renewed for a sixth and final season. Season 6 will consist of 14 episodes that will air on CBC and POP in 2020 respectively in Canada and the United States. Dan Levy broke the news via social media. He shared a letter to fans penned by his father Eugene and himself.
“We are very excited to announce that ‘Schitt’s Creek’ is coming back for a sixth season on CBC and Pop in 2020,” Dan Levy posted on social media. “We also wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that we have decided Season 6 will be our 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. We could never have dreamed that our fans would grow to love and care about these characters in the ways that you have.”
“We are all so excited to begin shooting these last fourteen episodes and can’t thank you enough for the overwhelming love and generosity you’ve shown us. We hope you continue to enjoy the rest of our fifth season as we prepare to shoot our sixth!”
Schitt’s Creek is currently airing its fifth season. The news comes on the heels of that powerful episode where Dan Levy’s character, David, supported his boyfriend Patrick (Noah Reid) coming out to his parents.
The show first premiered in 2015. It’s the first Canadian comedy to be nominated for a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Comedy Series. In addition to Eugene and Dan Levy, it stars Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy, Emily Hampshire, Dustin Milligan, Chris Elliott and Sarah Levy.
