Schitt's Creek is a critically acclaimed Canadian television sitcom that premiered on CBC in 2015 and ran for six seasons until its finale in 2020. Created by Eugene Levy and his son Dan Levy, the show tells the story of the wealthy Rose family who loses their fortune after their business manager defrauds them, leaving them with nothing but a small town they bought as a joke called Schitt's Creek.

The family, consisting of Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy), his wife Moira Rose (Catherine O'Hara), and their adult children David (Dan Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy), are forced to leave their luxurious life behind and move to Schitt's Creek, where they are faced with a culture shock and a community that they originally looked down upon.

The show balances heartwarming moments with sharp humor, as the Rose family adjusts to their new life in the town, trying to find their place and rebuild their lives. Johnny attempts to start a new business, Moira runs for local office, David opens up his own artisanal general store, and Alexis pursues her own personal goals outside of her past life of excess.

Throughout the show, the characters grow and change in various ways, as they learn to appreciate the simpler things in life and form meaningful connections with the people of Schitt's Creek.

One of the show's highlights is its outstanding cast, led by iconic actors Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara. Eugene Levy's deadpan delivery and comedic timing is perfect for the role of Johnny, the patriarch of the family who is both practical and caring. O'Hara's portrayal of Moira is nothing short of brilliant, as she brings a unique and flamboyant personality to the town, complete with an eccentric wardrobe and an ever-changing accent.

Dan Levy, who not only co-created the show but also plays David, delivers a breakout performance, infusing the character with sharp wit and vulnerability. Annie Murphy shines as the bubbly Alexis, whose personal growth throughout the show is a standout aspect of the series.

Schitt's Creek has been praised for its depiction of LGBTQ+ characters, particularly in the portrayal of David's sexuality and his relationship with his partner Patrick (Noah Reid). The show tackles their romance with care and sensitivity, portraying it as a natural component of the show.

Another aspect of the show that has been praised is its representation of small-town life and the people who inhabit it. Rather than reducing the residents of Schitt's Creek to mere caricatures, the show delves into their unique personalities and stories, making them just as important as the central characters.

Overall, Schitt's Creek is a triumph of a show that blends comedy and heart in a way that is rare on television. The Levy's created a world and characters that are unique and nuanced, while also exploring themes of family, community, and personal growth. Its impact on pop culture has been undeniable, making it one of the most memorable and beloved sitcoms of recent times.

In conclusion, Schitt's Creek is a six-season sitcom that tells the story of a wealthy family's downfall and subsequent life in a small town they are forced to inhabit. The show boasts of outstanding performances, balanced humor, and heart-warming moments that make it an essential watch.

Schitt's Creek is a series that is currently running and has 6 seasons (82 episodes). The series first aired on January 13, 2015.
