Beloved Canadian TV show Schitt’s Creek is ending after its sixth and final season.
“We wanted to take the opportunity to let you know that we have decided season six will be our last,” the statement said.
“We are so grateful to have been given the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with a final chapter that we have envisioned from the very beginning.”
“It’s not lost on us what a rare privilege it is in this industry to get to decide when your show should take its final bow. We could never have dreamed that our fans would grow to love and care about these characters in the ways that you have”
The series also stars Canadians Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy and Emily Hampshire, and will wrap up with 14 final episodes.
Schitt’s Creek, which started up in 2015, follows the misadventures of the super-rich Rose family after they’re defrauded by their business manager. The only asset they’re left with is a town, Schitt’s Creek, that certainly lives up to its name.

Schitt’s Creek is currently airing Season 5. The premiere date of Season 6 has not yet been announced.
