“Won’t you join me for a little stroll through the slice of paradise I like to call… the town where I currently am?”
Oh, hello you! A hilarious new teaser trailer has landed for the sixth (and final season) of Schitt’s Creek.
The clip starts with Moira Rose (Catherine O’Hara) filming a commercial for the town, in which she tells the camera: “Oh hello you! Won’t you join me for a little stroll through the slice of paradise I like to call… the town where I currently am?”
We’re then treated to clips of Alexis (Annie Murphy) arguing with David (Dan Levy), Moira slapping an unknown character across the face, and Johnny (Eugene Levy) and Patrick (Noah Reid) celebrating a sports-related event.
Although the show is currently at its peak, both critically and commercially, Dan announced earlier this year that he Eugene – who co-created the series together – were ending the show with its upcoming sixth season.
“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 in a joint statement.
“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!”
Since its premiere in 2015, Schitt’s Creek has received universal acclaim from critics and has been lauded for its portrayal of its LGBTQ characters especially Dan’s character David, who identifies as pansexual.
Earlier this year, the show was finally recognised at the Primetime Emmy Awards, with nominations for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (Eugene Levy) and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series (O’Hara).
All five seasons of the show are now available to stream on UK Netflix – the sixth and final season premieres 7 January on Pop TV.
