SCHITT’S CREEK LESSONS: WHAT THE HIT SERIES HAS TAUGHT CANADIAN COMEDY CREATORS

CBC sitcom, created by Dan and Eugene Levy, begins its final season Jan. 7

On a rare break during the filming of the upcoming episodes of Schitt’s Creek, the star and co-creator Dan Levy was philosophical about the approach he and his writers took in crafting the final season.

“For us, it’s always: tell the stories we want to tell, and hope the fans get on-board. And so far, we’ve been quite lucky,” says Levy, seated next to his father and show co-creator Eugene Levy.

To say the fans got on-board is an understatement. YouTube clips featuring interviews with the Levys or Schitt’s Creek co-stars Catherine O’Hara and Annie Murphy can rack up over a million views. The cast’s live North American tour earlier this fall sold out instantly, even in places as saturated with top entertainment events as Los Angeles or Las Vegas.
