Developed by the talented Eugene and Dan Levy, Schitt’s Creek premiered its final season earlier this year. An amazing American comedy, the show received high praise even before it appeared on Netflix. The Levy duo, who interestingly also plays the two leads, decided to call season 6 their last. Fate, however, plans to bring Schitt’s Creek for a season 7 after the show made the cut to the Emmys.

Season 6 was officially intended to be the end of Schitt’s Creek
American sitcom Schitt’s Creek follows the Rose family as they adapt to a “prince to pauper” lifestyle. The highly affluent Roses go downhill when their manager cheats them off their property and assets. With no way out, they shift to a small place named Schitt’s Creek, that Mr. Rose had bought in jest.
From there, the Creek family begins a journey striving to re-establish their life and fortune.
Fans were crushed when creator Dan Levy took to Twitter to announce that season 6 is the last one. He said, “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 have decided Season 6 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.” However, all that was a plan for the past.
With Schitt’s Creek making the list of Emmy nominees, the creators are contemplating a season 7.

Schitt’s Creek has made it to the Emmy List
Schitt’s Creek has had an amazing run with the audience, and now it is about make history at the Emmys. The show received 15 Emmy nominations, which perhaps persuaded the creators to shine the green signal for a season 7. Co-creator Daniel Levy has been over the moon since the Emmy news. He perceives it to be a result of touching the lives of fans in the middle of a tumultuous political atmosphere in America.
Levy told “Deadline”, “It really has been an unexpected gift that really gave back to us in many ways. All we really wanted to do was put out a show about people who were trying to improve themselves.” He added, “I think in a way the fact that the stories we were telling ended up overlapping with the huge political shift in America…I just think that we happened to slide into people’s lives in a time when they needed that kind of boost. And as a result the connection between the show and the viewers became that much more intensified because of the circumstance we are all kind of living in.”
Dan Levy’s thoughts on spin-offs and more
Schitt’s Creek bid us goodbye on a high note with a happy and emotional ending to season 6. The story of the Roses might not be over just yet. Dan Levy has been giving some thought into reprising Schitt’s Creek for a probable season 7 or perhaps spin-offs. Although he feels that both viewers and the creators need to take some time off and breathe before rushing into anything, he told The Hollywood Reporter, “The reason we ended the show in the first place was because I never wanted it to get stale. I never wanted to overstay our welcome. I wanted this show to have a legacy that people return to…I think the audience needs to take a breath… more importantly, I need to take a breath, do some other things in order to hopefully get an idea that is special enough to bring everyone back together.”
Levy opened up about what he wanted the takeaway to be from the show. He said, “I hope that it’s the same thing that people will remember the show for, which is just standing for something. Standing for something positive; standing for acceptance; standing for love; standing for the power of empathy and kindness; standing for the transformative effects that opening yourself up and being vulnerable and supported, what that can do to a person.”
