Could a Schitt’s Creek Movie Actually Happen? Here’s What Dan Levy Says

Schitt's Creek finale

After six utterly quotable seasons, Schitt’s Creek came to a bittersweet end in April. While the finale was fulfilling for the cast and fans alike, love for the show’s unique humor and authenticity has kept demand for new bingeable Creek content high. There’s good news on this front though: Co-creator Dan Levy has kept hope for a Schitt’s Creek movie alive.

Channeling his inner David, Dan Levy has been named among the Sexiest Men Alive since wrapping on Schitt’s Creek. During his interview for People’s big 2020 Sexiest Man issue, Levy spoke on the possibility of a reunion movie, as well as the thoughts the rest of the cast has on the matter, noting:

I don't think there's a single person on our team, cast or crew, that wouldn't want to come back for a movie.

This should be comforting to fans, as the loss of any character in a follow-up movie would be a hard hit. The wild success of the Pop and then Netflix show has to be partially credited to the chemistry the characters, as well as the cast, have with one another throughout its run.

Besides the obvious father-son bond of the co-creators and co-stars, Eugene Levy and Dan Levy, Twyla is played by Dan’s sister Sarah Levy. With a strong family base on and off the small screen, fans grew to view all residents of Schitt’s Creek as a bonded, if not dysfunctional, family. Each character brings their own light to the screen and has their own cult following, which is the true mark of a great show.

It’s argued that another mark of a great show is knowing when to stop. Dan Levy has that covered too, stating that any future Schitt’s Creek movie will have to come with time and inspiration:

At the same time, I think the success of the show really was tied so closely to the care that was put into it and the quality that was put into it. If I can come up with an idea that I think builds on what we've already done in a way that feels good and exciting and new and fresh and challenges our actors, then great. I go to sleep willing that idea to come to me.

If Schitt’s Creek came to him in a five Emmy-winning dream, I go to sleep willing a new idea comes to Levy too. Fans won’t have to wait long to see more projects from the award-winning cast, and Levy has already made his mark on another streaming service with his acting chops, leaving us with more than just anticipation for new Schitt’s Creek material.
