Wildly funny Canadian series “Schitt’s Creek”, co-created by actors Eugene Levy and Daniel Levy, will conclude it’s run with a sixth and final season next year.
The last batch of episodes are currently in pre-production and will shoot in a few weeks.
The Levy’s released a statement to their fans :
To Our Dear Fans,
We are very excited to announce that Schitt’s Creek is coming back for a sixth season on CBC and Pop in 2020! We also wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that we’ve decided season six 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!
Best Wishes and Warmest Regards,
Dan and Eugene Levy
