'Ew, David!' 12 Things You Might Not Know About ‘Schitt’s Creek’ .
It’s all in the details! Schitt’s Creek made a major impression on critics and fans alike, leading to an impressive 15 Emmy nominations for its final season. The series stars Dan and Eugene Levy — who also acted as creators and producers — Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy, Emily Hampshire, Noah Reid and Chris Elliott as a rag-tag group finding their way in the town of Schitt’s Creek. Across its six seasons, the cast stole viewers’ hearts, making it even harder to say goodbye to the show earlier this year. “I highly respect Dan’s decision to end the show even though I think all of us wanted to keep going,” Hampshire, 39, told Us Weekly exclusively in April. “Now that I know how it ends, it’s the right thing because he respects the characters and fans by the way he ends his show. … I can say that he does right by everyone. I can’t believe how amazing the ending is.” The Levys confirmed in March 2019 that the Rose family’s journey would not continue for a seventh season, telling fans in a statement at the time that he was “grateful” for the opportunity to create such a well-rounded story “in its totality.” “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 statement continued.
