Formerly the TV Guide Network, Pop TV rebranded in 2015 and has extended its offerings to include original scripted programming. While the Schitt’s Creek TV show, which is in its fourth season, originally airs on Canada’s CBC, Pop keeps picking it up despite low ratings, so the price must be right. How long will that hold? Will Schitt’s Creek be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned.
A fish out of water family comedy from creators Eugene Levy and Daniel Levy, Schitt’s Creek stars Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy, Chris Elliott, Jennifer Robertson, Emily Hampshire, Dustin Milligan, Tim Rozon, and Sarah Levy. The Pop sitcom centers on the once wealthy Rose family, who lost nearly everything, when the government collected on years of back taxes. Their only retreat is the backwater town of Schitt’s Creek, the family’s last remaining asset. Now they’ve got to learn to live with the locals, while they plot to regain their fortune and status. **Update below.
