It's been a little over a year since fans said goodbye to the wacky Rose family - David, Alexis, Moira, and Johnny - and the frequently odd town they came to call home on Schitt's Creek. While the comedy took a while to catch on with a large audience, once it did, it became a bit of a pop culture phenomenon, to the point where fans are already inquiring about reunion efforts after the Schitt's Creek ending. Well, now star / co-creator / writer Dan Levy and his father, star / co-creator Eugene Levy, have written more about the show, but it's not what you might expect.
Even after six seasons of watching the hilariously unique characters of Schitt's Creek live, love, learn, and grow in the tiny eponymous town, many viewers still want a lot more. So, Daniel Levy and Eugene Levy have answered fans' call, and written Best Wishes, Warmest Regards: The Story of Schitt’s Creek, which is set to be released on October 26. Take a look at the official announcement for the book, which went up on the publisher's Twitter page:
Oooh. Doesn't it look gorgeous?! OK, sure, I realize that a coffee table collector's book is probably not exactly what you were hoping for when it comes to more Schitt's Creek, but you can't say that Dan and Eugene Levy haven't put together something great for the mega-fans among us that would make a fantastic gift. The hardcover tome, which clocks in at 368 pages, is said to be a "lavishly illustrated...celebration of the series, the town, the characters, and the state of mind that is Schitt's Creek." And, if you're thinking that such a book will contain a lot of goodies for those who love and miss the kind-hearted comedy, you'd be correct.
Best Wishes, Warmest Regards: The Story of Schitt’s Creek will feature character profiles of the main cast of characters, as well as profiles for those like Ronnie, Bob, Twyla, and all of the other noted townsfolk who helped to make Schitt's Creek beloved. We'll also be treated to a recap of major moments for the series, including David and Patrick's first kiss, the Rose Family Christmas episode, and even when Moira decided to lend her endorsement to Herb Ertlinger Winery.
Fans will also get a lot of special features, which will include illustrated guides to David's, largely duo-toned, knitwear collection and (OMG, I'm SO excited about this!) Moira's wigs. Plus, there will be lots of behind the scenes tales from the Schitt's Creek cast to round things out.
Even though Dan Levy admitted, a few months after the show ended, that they left the Schitt's Creek story with Season 6 because he wanted to make sure they were able to go out on top with audiences loving it as much as they did in the beginning, he also said later that he felt everyone involved would return for a movie if he had the right idea. Seeing as how fans still bemoan the loss of new episodes (and the series made Emmy Award history by sweeping all seven comedy categories), they definitely ended strong.
And, while Best Wishes, Warmest Regards: The Story of Schitt’s Creek isn't the same as new Schitt's Creek, it's absolutely the next best thing for everyone who wants more from the departed hit.
