Comedy Central plans to air all six seasons of 2020 Emmys darling “Schitt’s Creek” beginning Oct. 2. The ViacomCBS cable channel, which is a sister network to the comedy’s U.S. home, Pop TV, will run five episodes each Friday, starting with Season 1.

Additionally, Netflix, which has the domestic streaming rights to “Schitt’s Creek,” said Monday that the sixth and final season will become available Oct. 7.

Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury picked up the national syndication rights to the series last fall, but has yet to launch it across U.S. broadcast markets.

On Sunday, “Schitt’s Creek” won all seven of its possible Emmy categories — a first among both comedy and drama series — with acting awards for stars Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy, plus directing and writing victories, and the title of top comedy.

The Television Academy was celebrating the sixth and final season of the Pop TV comedy, which was co-created by the father and son team of Eugene and Daniel Levy. “Schitt’s Creek,” which aired its series finale on Pop in April, came out as the show with the second-most wins at the 72nd annual Primetime Emmys. The first-place series was HBO’s “Watchmen,” which got 11.

Last year, Pop became part of ViacomCBS’ Entertainment & Youth Group (MTV, Comedy Central, Paramount Network, Smithsonian, Pop TV, CMT, VH1, TV Land, Logo) under president Chris McCarthy.

“Schitt’s Creek” was originally commissioned for Canada’s CBC and began airing on Pop TV in the U.S. after its initial premiere on its native network.
