Their characters may need work, but the cast of “Schitt’s Creek” is doing just fine!
The comedy has quickly become one of Canada’s most beloved series, and with nine wins at last year’s Canadian Screen Awards the critical darling is in great shape heading into its third season.
“It was really an amazing year,” says co-creator and star Eugene Levy. “The CSAs, the nominations and the wins were… I don’t know, like a little pat on the back?”
Adds his co-star and longtime collaborator, Catherine O’Hara, “It’s very encouraging. I don’t know what it means, but it’s lovely. It’s better than a kick in the head!”
Season 3 finds the Rose family still living in the small rural town that patriarch Johnny (Levy) bought as a joke for his son David, played by Levy’s real-life son Dan.
“When we started out writing the first season of the show, there were no expectations, and something about it seemed to connect,” admits the younger Levy, who also serves as a writer on the show.
And while the Rose family may still be stuck living in a motel, Dan says his character’s love life is set to get “very complicated” in season 3. Watch the video below for more.
