The Roses are back and worse than ever this spring for a second season of the Pop sitcom Schitt’s Creek. Pop announced that the show, created by Eugene Levy and his son Daniel Levy, will premiere its 13-episode second season on March 16. Schitt’s Creek is Pop’s first and only original scripted series, standing apart from the channel’s focus on reality and game show television.
In the first season, wealthy couple Johnny and Moira Rose (Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara) are shocked to discover that Johnny’s business manager has made off with all their money and neglected to take care of their taxes for years. Their opulent home is repossessed and they and their two fully grown spoiled children, the constantly annoyed David (Daniel Levy) and the phone-attached Alexis (Annie Murphy), must move to the Podunk town of Schitt’s Creek, which Johnny had bought as a joke long ago.

The main arc of season 1 involves Johnny trying to sell Schitt’s Creek, but in the finale, he learns that his children have developed an attachment to the small town, and the family stays. In the upcoming second season, Johnny will continue to look for ways out of the town, while Moira attempts to bring the community up to her level of sophistication and David and Alexis struggle to find real jobs for the first time ever.
Season 2 will premiere with two new episodes on Wednesday, March 16 at 8:00 p.m. ET on Pop.
