'Schitt's Creek' Is Ending And Fans Are Not Okay
The creators of 'Schitt's Creek' have announced that the beloved comedy series is sadly coming to an end.
The news was delivered in the form of a sneaky Schitt sandwich -- with father and son team Dan and Eugene Levy disguising the terrible news on Twitter with a sweetener -- that the series had been renewed for a sixth season!
But as fans read on, they realised it was all a trick and that the Schitt's Creek series finale was going to air a lot sooner than they'd hoped.
"We also wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that we have decided season six will be our last," the Levys wrote, knowing full well that fans aren't emotionally prepared to farewell the Rose family.
Schitt's Creek premiered in 2015 and has slowly gathered a cult following -- with fans becoming *obsessed* with the riches-to-rags story of former video store magnate Johnny (Eugene Levy), his dramatic soap star wife Moira (Catherine O'Hara) and their adult children David (Dan Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy) who were woefully unprepared for life without the support of their family's fortune.
In the last few years, the show has won high profile fans in celebs (with impeccable taste) like Mariah Carey, Anjelica Huston and Jennifer Lawrence -- who are no doubt, mourning the upcoming loss of Schitt's.
While Mariah hasn't yet vented about the news, non-celebrity fans are fuming that their supply of fresh Schitt's episodes will be rudely cut off soon.
Some fans aren't too schitty about the sad news, conceding that all good things must come to an end and closing down production at the end of season six might not be a bad thing.
In their emotional breakup tweet with fans, the Levys said that they were "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".
"It's not lost on us what a rare privilege it is in this industry to decide when your show should take its final bow," they added.
"We could never have dreamed that our fans would grow to love and care about these characters in the ways that you have," the Levys said.
Seasons 1-4 of Schitt's Creek are currently streaming on Netflix.
