The concept behind Schitt’s Creek isn’t a totally new idea. In it, the Rose family goes from extreme wealth to being broke in an instant. The series centers on the parents, Johnny (Eugene Levy) and Moira (Catherine O’Hara), plus their adult children David (Dan Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy) adjusting to life without money.

The family moves to a small town called Schitt’s Creek and settles into the local rundown motel. While there, they discover their true selves in ways they never could have if they’d remained in their previous lifestyle.

By the last season of Schitt’s Creek, the Roses have fully adapted to their surroundings and have even come to love living in the small town. Both Rose children found love interests in the community. Meanwhile, Johnny and Moira have reached a deeper level of understanding in their marriage and have managed to forge forever friendships with their neighbors.

While the Rose family is thrilled with David’s choice of spouse in Patrick, they’re less excited about the big changes coming their way.

But as any Schitt’s Creek fan will attest, every single episode is worth watching. The series is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
