The Final Season Of Schitt's Creek Has Landed On Netflix Early

The sixth and final season of Schitt's Creek has dropped on Netflix, days earlier than expected.

The news came from creator and star of the show Daniel Levy after he tweeted the announcement:

The last season was supposed to be released on 7 October but it seems we're able to bid farewell to Johnny, Moira, David, Alexa and everyone else who made their humble town so memorable a little earlier that anticipated.

The show is all about the Rose family, who have to pack up their lives and leave their glamorous belongings behind after video store magnate Johnny (Eugene Levy) is defrauded by his business manager.

A synopsis explains: "They are forced to rebuild their lives with their sole remaining asset: a small town named Schitt's Creek, which they had bought for their son as a joke birthday gift back in 1991.

"The Roses relocate to Schitt's Creek, moving into two adjacent rooms in a run-down motel. As the family adjusts to their new lives, their well-to-do attitudes come into conflict with the more provincial residents of Schitt's Creek, including mayor Roland Schitt (Chris Elliott), his wife Jocelyn (Jenn Robertson), and the motel's manager, Stevie Budd (Emily Hampshire)."

The easy-watching and much-loved comedy managed to sweep all four categories at the 2020 Emmy Awards.

It won all four major acting categories, including Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress, as well as three other gongs for writing and directing.

The show also won the coveted Best Comedy Series award at the 72nd Emmy Awards and the cast was spellbound by the achievement.

Eugene Levy, who plays the Rose family patriarch Johnny, nabbed his first Emmy in 37 years while Catherine O'Hara, who plays Moira, won her first ever acting Emmy.

The actor addressed everyone at the virtual ceremony, saying: "I guess it's kind of ironical that the straightest role I've ever played lands me an Emmy for a comedy performance. So now I seriously have to question just what I've been doing for the past 50 years.

"And that brings me to my multi-Emmy nominated partner: Daniel Levy, who took our show that we came up with and brilliantly guided it to this little me party tonight. So thank you, son."
