Schitt’s Creek Final Season Preview
When we last saw the Rose family and their surrounding Schitt’s Creek residents, the town was putting on a community theater production of Cabaret with Stevie (Emily Hampshire) in the leading role. David (Daniel Levy) and Patrick (Noah Reid) had just gotten engaged and they waited to tell everyone at the show’s cast party (though the secret leaked a little early).
Everyone was thrilled, even though Stevie was worried that everyone is moving on without her. However, in the waning moments of the episode, Moira (Katherine O’Hara) received word that her film, The Crows have Eyes II: The Crowening, had been shelved. She crawled into her closet to cry and we can only assume that’s where she stayed until season six premieres.
What we know about the final season is that David and Patrick are planning a wedding, while Stevie, Johnny (Eugene Levy), and Roland (Chris Elliott) attend a viewing for a nearby hotel. Alexis (Annie Murphy) helps Moira join social media, and Johnny and Moira try to find a new investor for their hotel. Also, after their trip to the Galapagos Islands, Alexis returns to Schitt’s Creek and Ted (Dustin Milligan) stays behind for his research project, so they struggle with having a long-distance relationship.
The show has been a joint endeavor between father and son Eugene and Daniel Levy, who also star on the show. Eugene recently told the Los Angeles Times that he was so thrilled his son wanted to work together — and it’s a real family affair because Eugene’s daughter Sarah is also on the show.
“This was a project I had to succeed in,” said Eugene, “getting this idea off the ground, because it was the only time in his life Daniel came and said, ‘Do you want to work on this with me?””
He added, “It didn’t take long before I realized, ‘All I have to do is give him some space and not crowd him with what I think.’ I could not be prouder of what he’s done, and I’m really glad I had the opportunity in my life to be able to say we had a good run working together, me and my kids — Sarah too. It’s just been a joy.”
As for the end of the show, Daniel posted a heartfelt message to fans when they wrapped the show this past summer.
“Don’t think my heart has ever felt more gratitude than it did last night. Thank you to everyone who made this little show happen,” wrote Daniel. “To my family, thank you for being patient with me while I fussed over every detail, big and small, for six life-changing years. To our magnificent cast and crew, I am still trying to find the words to properly describe the breadth and strength of your talents and how much you’ve inspired me… To our fans, you’ve got a season made with a whole lot of love coming your way next year. And lastly, to Prince David, long may you f*cking reign.”
Schitt’s Creek’s sixth and final season premieres Tuesday, January 7 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on POP.
