Emmy-winning Canadian comedy Schitt’s Creek is leaving Netflix on October 2 but will be available on rival streaming service Hulu starting the next day. The change appeared on both streaming services’ schedules this month.
Created by series stars Eugene and Dan Levy – father and son, who play father and son on the show – the sitcom centers on the Roses, a wealthy family who lose their fortune to bank in taxes, embezzlement and a corrupt manager . They are left with one asset, the small town of Schitt’s Creek, bought for fun. Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy and Chris Elliott also star.
The series premiered on CBC in Canada in 2015 and was soon picked up in the US by Pop TV — the cable channel’s first season, which also briefly aired “One Day at a Time,” offered scripted programs. Times television critic Robert Lloyd raved about the comedy, but it struggled to find its American audience until January 2017, when it began streaming on Netflix.
With the platform’s large subscriber base and social media presence, Schitt’s Creek’s fortunes quickly grew, attracting a wider audience and the attention of more critics.
The show’s first four Emmy nominations came in 2019 for its fifth season and included nods for Eugene Levy and O’Hara for Lead in a Comedy. His first Emmy wins came the following year for the sixth and final season, when he won in nine of the 15 categories for which he was nominated, a record for a comedy series. The Emmys were for Comedy Series, Directing, Casting, Costumes, Screenwriting, and All Four Actor and Supporting Actor Awards.
