Sophomore run kicks off in about two weeks
Pop has renewed Eugene Levy‘s “Schitt’s Creek” for a 13-episode third season, making the announcement a few weeks before Season 2 of Pop’s most-watched original series even premieres.
“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 3,” said Brad Schwartz, president of Pop. “In the upcoming Season 2, 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.”
“Schitt’s Creek” follows the once-wealthy Rose family, played by Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy (Eugene’s son) and Annie Murphy, who suddenly find themselves broke and living in Schitt’s Creek — a small, depressing town they once bought as a joke.
“Schitt’s Creek” is commissioned by CBC, produced by Not A Real Company Productions Inc. and created by the father-and-son Levy team. The executive producers are Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Andrew Barnsley, Kevin White, Fred Levy and Ben Feigin.
The sitcom is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
