It has earned multiple Emmy Award nominations and a celebrity following that includes singer Mariah Carey and NBA star Steph Curry.

Schitt’s Creek wraps its sixth and final season tonight, and its rare dose of good-natured comedy has many fans turning to the Canadian sitcom for respite during particularly dark times.

“It’s a show that’s really about the power of community and the power of acceptance,” said show co-creator and star Dan Levy.

“I think those are messages that mean more than ever before.”

Zia Ahmed, a self-professed superfan in Toronto, echoes the feeling. “You have all these characters thrown into this dire situation in their lives. And now they’re trying to make the best out of it, and find humour.”
