Do You Miss ‘Schitt’s Creek’? The Cast Will Reunite Tonight for Charity
On April 7, Schitt’s Creek aired its last episode ever. Fortunately, the cast will be reuniting tonight — April 26 — for a good cause. The fictional Rose family will join the rest of the beloved characters from Schitt’s Creek and dozens of other celebrities to raise awareness for those fighting on the front lines of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
‘Schitt’s Creek’ concluded with Season 6
Schitt’s Creek aired on the Pop TV network in 2015. The show quickly became a beloved sitcom by both audiences and critics alike. As the Schitt’s Creek fan base continued to grow, so did the expectation to do right by audiences around the world. Father-son duo Dan and Eugene Levy knew they had something special — and they knew when the time was right to conclude the show.
“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 beginning,” the Levys shared on Twitter in March of 2019.
“We’re on an upward trajectory, and we will be still on an upward trajectory when this series actually wraps,” Eugene Levy told The New York Times in January of 2020. “From start to finish our show will be exactly what it was intended to be. The biggest mistake you can make in TV is shifting the focus away from characters and the storytelling to servicing audience expectations. The audience is there because you’ve done something right.”
After the finale of Schitt’s Creek aired, fans tuned in to an hour-long special celebrating the success of the series. Now, fans are being given another minute longer with the cast of Schitt’s Creek thanks to the charity special, Stronger Together, Tous Ensemble.
