LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Everything is coming up “Roses” for Pop as the network announces the
third season renewal of the highly acclaimed scripted comedy series
SCHITT’S CREEK, two weeks ahead of the show’s season two television
premiere on Wednesday, March 16 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT.
Recently called “one of the best new TV shows of 2015” (Los Angeles
Times), SCHITT’S CREEK is a fish-out-of-water character-driven comedy
that follows the once wealthy Rose family—played by Eugene Levy,
Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy—who suddenly find
themselves broke and living in Schitt’s Creek, a small, depressing town
they once bought as a joke. SCHITT’S CREEK was the most watched Pop
original series in 2015 among viewers (P2+) and delivered more younger
viewers (A18-34) than any other original program on the network.
“The audience and critical reception we have received for ‘Schitt’s
Creek’ has been beyond expectations, and we are excited to reward our
fans with 13 additional episodes in season three,” said Brad Schwartz,
President of Pop. “In the upcoming season two, the character and the
comedy reaches for bold new heights, and we can’t wait to see where this
extraordinary cast and award-worthy performances goes next.”
Co-created and written by father-son team Eugene and Daniel Levy, who
also star in the series, SCHITT’S CREEK will bring back the show’s
beloved ensemble cast in season three, including Catherine O’Hara, Chris
Elliott, Annie Murphy, Emily Hampshire and Jennifer Robertson.
SCHITT’S CREEK is commissioned by CBC, produced by Not A Real Company
Productions Inc. and created by Eugene Levy and Daniel Levy. The
executive producers are Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Andrew Barnsley, Kevin
White, Fred Levy, and Ben Feigin. SCHITT’S CREEK is distributed
internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
