Pop has greenlit Canadian comedy “Schitt’s Creek” for a fourth season, with an unconfirmed number of new episodes for 2017-18. Debuting on CBC Television in Canada on Jan. 13, 2015 (and airing in the U.S. on Pop), “Schitt’s Creek” stars Eugene Levy as a wealthy video store magnate and Catherine O’Hara as his wife, a washed up soap star. After losing all their money due to their crooked business manager stealing their money and not paying their taxes, they are forced to rebuild their lives in their only remaining asset: the small town of Schitt’s Creek which they once purchased as a joke gift for the birthday of one of their children.
“Schitt’s Creek” has become a brand-defining television series for Pop—a culturally relevant, clever, full of heart comedy that is perfect for these crazy times,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Pop. “Season after season, we are seeing significant audience growth, heightened buzz, critical acclaim and award-season chatter.”
The current third season of “Schitt’s Creek” concludes on Pop on April 3rd.
“Schitt’s Creek” is 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, Fred Levy, and Ben Feigin. Schitt’s Creek is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
