The Canadian Television comedy “Schitt’s Creek” has quickly become a fan favorite here in the United States, and The CW is cashing in on the fun. CW Seed has acquired the off-season streaming rights to Pop TV’s Primetime Emmy Award nominated comedy series, making it even easier to watch the old seasons.
The announcement was made today by Rick Haskins, Executive Vice President, The CW, at The Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, CA. With the new deal, Seasons 1 through Season 4 of the series will be available to stream on the CW Seed App and CWSeed.com. You can start watching it today, Sunday, August 4. Seasons 1 through Season 4 are also available on Netflix, but if you don’t have a subscription this is an easy option.
“We love everything about ‘Schitt’s Creek’ – the comedy acting, writing as well as the show’s binge-ability. All of which are perfect for the CW Seed audience,” said Haskins. “We’re excited to help expand the awareness and hope to generate new fans of this brilliant series on our free, ad-supported platform.”
If you are new to the show, “SCHITT’S CREEK” is a half-hour, single-camera scripted comedy series that is co-created by two-time Emmy Award winner Eugene and Daniel Levy.
The series’ ensemble cast includes Eugene Levy, Emmy Award winner Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy, four-time Emmy Award winner Chris Elliott, Emily Hampshire, Jennifer Robertson, Noah Reid, Dustin Milligan, Sarah and Karen Robinson.
The show follows a wealthy family who suddenly find themselves broke and forced to live in Schitt’s Creek, a small town they once bought as a joke.
Current fans can watch the premiere of the sixth and final season on Pop TV in the US in early 2020. Commissioned by CBC, the series 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, David West Read and Ben Feigin. The show is produced in association with CBC and Pop TV and distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
