Season 6 of ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Arrives on Netflix in the UK on May 14
The series finale of Schitt’s Creek aired on April 7, 2020. For fans in the U.K. who have not been able to watch the final season of Schitt’s Creek, have no fear. Season 6 of Schitt’s Creek arrives on Netflix in the U.K. on May 14.
‘Schitt’s Creek’ will be on Netflix in the U.K. soon
Schitt’s Creek aired on CBC and Pop TV during its run. In the past, seasons of the show typically appeared on Netflix in the U.K. around a month after a season aired in North America.
Back in March 2020, the Twitter account for Netflix UK and Ireland alerted fans that the sixth and final season of Schitt’s Creek will be available on May 14.
“The sixth and ~final~ season of Schitt’s Creek comes to Netflix on 14 May,” tweeted the account.
Fans in the U.S. will have to wait a bit longer
While Season 6 of Schitt’s Creek will be on Netflix in the U.K. in just a few days, fans in the U.S. will have to wait for the final season. As of right now, Netflix has not even announced a release date for the U.S. However, based on past seasons fans can guess when it will arrive.
According to Newsweek, “Apart from the first two seasons, which came to Netflix in January 2017, all seasons of the series have come to the streaming service in October. Season 5, for example, came on October 10—just over six months after that season’s finale aired on Pop.”
Knowing this, fans of Schitt’s Creek can assume it will be available on Netflix in the U.S. sometime in October 2020.
Why ‘Schitt’s Creek’ ended after six seasons
Schitt’s Creek was created by father and son duo Eugene Levy and Dan Levy. The show premiered in March 2015 and had a total of 80 episodes. Dan Levy first started planning the show’s ending after the show was picked up for two more seasons after the fourth season.
“I at no point wanted to compromise on quality or storytelling,” Dan Levy told Variety. “It just didn’t feel like it was worth the risk to take it any further.”
Schitt’s Creek began streaming on Netflix in 2017, resulting in the fan base of the show growing momentously. Despite the show’s massive increase in popularity, Dan Levy always knew how he wanted to end the show.
“The goal was at the end of this show, this family will realize the value of love,” Dan Levy said during his interview with Variety. “Money can temporarily bandage a lot of things. But they would never be able to buy the kind of closeness that they have by the end of the series.”
Since the show went off the air, the cast of Schitt’s Creek briefly reunited virtually during the Stronger Together, Tous Ensemble broadcast to raise money for Food Banks Canada. Dan Levy also told Variety that he hasn’t ruled out a Schitt’s Creek reunion down the line.
“I wish that this show could have gone on 100 seasons. But it’s quality over quantity,” he said. “If an idea crosses my path that I feel is deserving of our cast’s time, then let’s do it. I don’t know what it could possibly be at this point but I would love to revisit these characters, and I would love to get to play with this cast again. I feel very proud of the work that we’ve done, and I wouldn’t want to do anything that compromises that.”
