“We are so grateful to have been given the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality.”
Schitt’s Creek is returning for a sixth season, but we’re sad to announce that it will be its last.
Today, stars Dan and Eugene Levy – who co-created the series – posted a statement to social media in which they revealed the news, and thanked fans for supporting the show for the past five years.
“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 have envisioned from the very beginning,” they wrote.
“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!”
The series stars Eugene, Dan, Annie Murphy and Emmy Award winner Catherine O’Hara as the Rose family, who lose their fortune and have to take refuge in a town they bought as a joke, Schitt’s Creek.
It’s received universal acclaim ever since its debut back in 2015 for the cast’s performances, and for its portrayal of pansexual character David (Dan Levy).
We recently rounded up five reasons why you can watch the show, which you can view here.
All four seasons of Schitt’s Creek are available to watch on Netflix UK.
