There are few shows that are as distinctly Canadian as Schitt’s Creek. And on top of being so Canadian, the series also had the perfect cast, the funniest characters, and the most original stories. Dan Levy and Eugene Levy helped create a perfect series with stars Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy, Jennifer Robertson, Emily Hampshire, and Tim Rozon, to name a few.

And Schitt’s Creek was so incredible that it also became a hit in the United States and around the world, earning dozens of trophies at the Canadian Screen Awards, the Critics’ Choice Television Awards, the Emmy Awards, and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
