Will Schitt's Creek Ever Have A Season 7?

"Schitt's Creek" is one of the most beloved TV shows in recent times. The series gained a massive cult following, and since it began streaming on Netflix, even more fans have fallen in love with the Rose family. The show was created by actor Eugene Levy and his son, Dan Levy. The duo also starred as father and son in the series, with the four leads rounded out by Catherine O'Hara and Annie Murphy.

"Schitt's Creek's" story began just moments after the wealthy Rose family — parents Johnny and Moira and their spoilt adult kids David and Alexis — found out they'd lost their entire fortune. The Roses' only means of survival was fleeing to the small town of Schitt's Creek, which they had purchased as a joke. The family moved into the local motel and attempted to pick up the pieces of their lives (via Mental Floss).

The show debuted in 2015 on the Canadian network CBC. The series began to gain steam and was eventually picked up by the Pop network. The show ultimately ran for six seasons, culminating in 2020. However, fans are still holding out hope that the Rose family could return in the future. 

Will Schitt's Creek return for more episodes?

Despite "Schitt's Creek" ending its run at the height of its popularity, creator Dan Levy has no regrets about saying goodbye after Season 6. However, he's not ruling out bringing back the cast for a spinoff project, such as a movie, someday. "If there is something that comes up down the line that feels compelling enough to bring our troupe back together and continue to tell a story, so be it. I'm not one to lay down the iron fist and say, 'This is it, forever.' This is just it for now," Levy stated, per EW.

According to Good Housekeeping, loyal fans are dying to know what happens after the events of the "Schitt's Creek" finale. There are many storylines that a movie could potentially focus on, such as Alexis's career in New York, David and Patrick's married home life, Johnny's latest business venture, and Moira's rejuvenated acting career. While fans remain hopeful for fresh stories, even if they don't necessarily form a full seventh season, the series will live on in the always hilarious reruns.

Eugene Levy keeps hope alive for more Schitt's Creek

With each year that passes without new "Schitt's Creek" episodes, fans lose more hope that the show is ever going to return. Maybe Season 6 truly was the end of the Roses' story? However, in a February 2023 interview with the Radio Times, Eugene Levy suggested that all is not lost. 

After acknowledging that they're not officially working on anything just yet, Levy admitted, "We've never stopped thinking about what might happen down the line." He continued, "We're certainly open to anything, I think when the idea that is the right idea presents itself we'll probably act on [it], I guess." 

According to ET Canada, Levy's co-star and fellow comedy icon Catherine O'Hara shared that it was incredibly difficult to say goodbye to the show and she'd jump at the chance to work with her co-stars again. Echoing Levy's words, O'Hara also said she'd happily do a movie provided it was "the right idea."

A Schitt's Creek movie could still be on the cards too

Annie Murphy, meanwhile, quipped in April 2021: "I mean, I've been sending Dan [Levy] $5 a day in the mail as a bribe." The actor continued, "So far I have not heard back about a movie officially. But, oh, my God, I would be just over the moon if that ever came to pass because I miss everyone so much every day. Just to see Moira again, I would pay a lot of money to do that," (via Us Weekly). 

During a 2023 interview on Britain's "This Morning" breakfast show (via Express), Eugene Levy clarified that it's all down to his son's vision for the show. He explained, "It really depends on the idea of what it is because whatever it is, it has to elevate itself from the point where we left off to the point where we're gonna pick up, you know." Dan Levy himself confirmed as such after "Schitt's Creek" ended.

As he told People, "I think it just comes down to making sure that it's the right story to tell. And I think we're also proud of the work we did on 'Schitt's.' And when you end on such a high, it really forces you to think very carefully about what the next step is." The writer and actor did note, though, that it's not hopeless, ultimately describing the situation as: "TBD with an exclamation mark on the end."
