Pop Renews ‘Schitt’s Creek’ for Season 3

13 New Episodes Ordered

Pop has announced a third season renewal for scripted comedy “Schitt’s Creek” two weeks ahead of the sophomore season opener on Wednesday, March 16 at 8 p.m. ET. Debuting on Canadian broadcaster CBC Television on January 13, 2015 and co-created by Eugene and Daniel Levy, “Schitt’s Creek” stars Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara as a wealthy couple who are forced, after losing all their money, to rebuild their lives in their only remaining asset: the small town of Schitt’s Creek, which they once purchased as a joke. The cast also includes Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy, Chris Elliott, Jennifer Robertson and Emily Hampshire.

“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.”
