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

Actress Lili Simmons (“Banshee”, “Bone Tomahawk”) has been cast as Catwoman – an older incarnation of – on FOX’s “Gotham”.

Camren Bicondova, who has been playing a teenage version of Selina Kyle on the series, tells social media followers that she opted out of playing an older version of the final episode of the series.

I wanted to give (the character) Selina Kyle as much respect as possible. Some will say that giving her respect would include seeing the character through to the end of the show, which I understand. But, I firmly believe that part of leaving a legacy and being part of a legacy means knowing when to pass the torch to someone else. I was blessed to be the vessel for Selina Kyle for her formative teen years, and it only felt right to give someone else the torch for her adult self.

Simmons, 25, best known for her role as Rebecca Bowman on Cinemax series “Banshee”, stepped in to play the character for the finale – which features a 10-year-time jump. Bicondova assures fans she’s “perfect” for the role.

The woman who will be playing the older Selina Kyle is the glorious Lili Simmons, who, when I met [her] for the first time, made me cry tears of joy. She is perfect for this role, and she really wanted to do Selina right. We spoke about Selina Kyle for hours; I shared journal entries and scenes that were prime examples of Selina’s characteristics, and she shared thoughts of backstory for the 10 years that the audience doesn’t see. I want to clearly express how much thought and care went into this decision, as well as how much respect for the character and legacy of Selina Kyle there is within it.

Not only will the series finale of the ‘Batman’ series feature an older caped Crusader (18-year-old David Mazouz will again play the role) and Lili Simmons’ Catwoman, but Cameron Monaghan will finally make his full transformation into The Joker.

The series flash-forwards 10 years into the future, as Bruce is set to return to Gotham for the opening of the new Wayne Tower. A series of crimes leads Gordon to believe Penguin and The Riddler are up to their old tricks. However, when Bullock is framed for a murder, Gordon begins to piece together an even more sinister plot targeting the city, and a new figure emerges from the shadows to be the hero Gotham desperately needs in the all-new “The Beginning… ” series finale episode of GOTHAM airing Thursday, April 25 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Wayne returns to TV… but where’s Garth?

Mike Myers is headed back to the box for a Netflix comedy

Mike Myers is headed back to the box – and with Netflix his new home, the rewards should be loftier than what he and his stringy-haired buddy were getting over at Community Access Television.

Ah, shit, Okay, so it’s not “Wayne’s World 3” (surely that’s on the way, right? You can’t just tease us with appearances of the duo at all these awards ceremonies and then yank the possibility of a new movie away from us!), and it won’t co-star Dana Carvey (but what’s the bet he makes an appearance!), but we can celebrate the return of “Saturday Night Live alum to the small screen. It’s a start. Means he’s hungry to work, and make us giggle-fart again.

 Netflix has ordered a half-hour limited comedy series produced by and starring Myers, in which he plays multiple characters.

“I love creating characters, and Netflix has given me a fantastic playground to play in”, the actor, who has given us such memorable characters as Austin Powers and The Love Guru (heh), said.

Though details are being kept under wraps, seems the show has been granted a 6-episode order.
