Dan Levy Is Leaving Ur ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Movie Requests On Read

Schitt’s Creek may have just made Emmy Award history—securing wins in all of the major comedy categories—but fans are already getting a little restless. C’mon guys, enjoy the afterglow! The comedy series, co-created by ya boy Dan Levy and his father Eugene Levy, has been building a loyal following during it’s tenure on Netflix and recently ended it’s sixth and final season on a sweet and satisfying high note. After winning seven of their fifteen nominations at the 2020 Emmys, it’s pretty safe to say you’re either a deeply chuffed fan or you’re chucking it onto your ‘To Watch’ list.

The show’s core four, Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Catherine O’Hara, and Annie Murphy all won acting awards for their beloved Schitt’s Creek characters, and after the show, they sat down in the Vanity Fair pressroom to process and bask in the legendary #SchittsSweep. After a near pitch-perfect series and the well-deserved wins, the question inevitably turned to, what’s next? Fans of the show have been enthusiastically requesting a Schitt’s Creek movie, but we’re wondering if the recent Emmy wins might actually dissuade a return of the Rose family?

When asked if the wins could improve the chances of a Schitt’s Creek movie, Levy was gently, but firmly realistic. “Here’s the thing: This is the best way we could have ever ended the show,” he explained. “So if there is an idea that ever pops into my head, worthy of these wonderful people, it has to be really freaking good at this point…because this was a really nice way of saying goodbye…so fingers crossed that we get a really good idea that comes into our head.”

Look, Schitt’s Creek only actually ended *checks notes* five months ago which is both a testament to how time is simply not real and how excellent the show is—that people are already clamouring for a movie so soon. Yes, we’d love to see it, but we reckon it makes sense to give the show some time to breathe. In the meantime, you can always make like wine-drunk Sebastian Stan and start rewatching the classics.
