With nothing is left, the family has no choice but to move to Schitt’s Creek, a small-town Mr Rose bought as a joke. The family builds their life and tries to re-establish their lost fortune there.
Is Schitt’s Creek returning with a Season 7?
No, the show won’t return for Season 7. Season 6 premiered on January 7, 2020, and came to an end on April 7, 2020, after 14 episodes. It was followed by a one-hour special, featuring the behind-the-scenes footage and interviews of the cast and crew members of the show. Fans can watch all the episodes on Pop TV.
How did the makers announce the news?
On March 21, 2019, creator and lead actor Dan Levy, through his Twitter, announced that season 6 of the comedy series will also be its last. In the released statement, Dan and Eugene Levy said, “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”.
The makers decided to stop the series when the show was ranked at an all-time high. But, it is a privilege less realized by makers to take the decision and call it an end before the show runs into the ground.
Why would Schitt’s Creek not return for Season 7?
As per reports, when Dan Levy first developed Schitt’s Creek with his father, Eugene, he always envisioned that the series would last five seasons. After the release of season 4 in 2018, the comedy series was awarded a two-season renewal. The decision to end the series with season 6 was a creative one and not something based on viewers’ response.
Interestingly, Schitt’s Creek closed its run while interest was at an all-time high. For now, Schitt’s Creek season 7 isn’t deemed necessary, but that might change in the future as the cast and crew are leaving the door open if they feel the need to revisit the series at some point in the future.
Does that mean Schitt’s Creek could return in the future?
Let’s be honest, it’s hard to bid farewell to a show if it’s your favourite one. But before you begin your mourning, we are letting you in on a little secret. Well, it’s not really a secret if you consider that Dan Levy told a leading entertainment portal in an interview that, “The world doesn’t explode at the end of (the series finale)”.
He continued, “If there is something that comes up down the line that feels compelling enough to bring our troupe back together and continue to tell a story, so be it. I’m not one to lay down the iron fist and say, ‘This is it, forever.’ This is just it for now”. So, this might not be the final goodbye, since there’s a chance that the show can be back with a revival.
