'Schitt's Creek' picked up for a second season
Schitt’s Creek has been picked up for a second season by Pop, the network announced Tuesday.
The show, created by father-son duo Eugene and Daniel Levy, was the first-ever scripted series for the entertainment network, which launched earlier this year to “celebrate the fun of being a fan.” The 13-episode first season premiered on Feb. 11.
The series centers on a once filthy rich video store mogul Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy), his soap star wife Moira (Catherine O’Hara), and their two kids, extreme hipster son David (Daniel Levy) and socialite daughter Alexis (Annie Murphy). After suddenly finding themselves broke, they are forced to live in Schitt’s Creek, a small, depressing town they once bought as a joke.
Schitt’s Creek airs new episodes every Wednesday night at 10 p.m ET/PT. The season 1 finale airs on Wednesday, May 6 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Season 2 is set to air in 2016 with 13 new episodes.
