THE ROSES ARE IN FULL BLOOM ON POP WHEN “SCHITT’S CREEK” RETURNS FOR SEASON THREE ON WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11
Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy Are Back As The Riches-To-Rags Rose Family in 13-Episode New Season
LOS ANGELES – November 14, 2016 – No “Rose” is without a thorn in SCHITT’S CREEK, as the critically lauded scripted comedy returns on Pop for season three on Wednesday, January 11 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT.
Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy will make their comedic return as the Rose family in season three, which will also bring back cast regulars Chris Elliott, Emily Hampshire and Jennifer Robertson. The third season will include 13 half-hour episodes. Viewers can catch-up on past seasons at poptv.com, video-on-demand through cable and satellite TV providers and on Amazon Prime.
“I’m totally psyched about our upcoming third season which, I feel, is our strongest yet—our funniest and most emotionally satisfying 13 shows to date,” said Eugene Levy.
“SCHITT’S CREEK has emerged as both a critics darling and a fan favorite, and we’re thrilled to bring back our most-watched Pop original series to kick off the New Year,” said Justin Rosenblatt, Executive Vice President, Original Programming and Development, Pop. “The third season, dare I say it, is the best yet—featuring one of the best ensemble casts in television in a brilliantly written comedy that is heart-warming, clever and funny.”
In season three of SCHITT’S CREEK, the Roses find themselves at a crossroads between longing for the life of extreme wealth and extravagance they left behind and embracing the ho-hum, make-shift but loveable town they’ve reluctantly come to call home. While Johnny (Eugene Levy) continues to explore business opportunities that could help his family’s plight, Moira (Catherine O’Hara) finds herself faced with difficulties while on Town Council. Their adult children Alexis (Annie Murphy) and David (Daniel Levy) both realize their love lives are extremely complicated, neither one being able to fully break away from former relationships. While the Roses still hold out hope of returning to the lap of luxury, they continue to move forward with caviar dreams on a beer budget, realizing with each passing day that Schitt’s Creek may be the best place for them after all (#MoneyCantBuyYouHappiness).

The executive producers are Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Andrew Barnsley, Kevin White, Fred Levy, and Ben Feigin. SCHITT’S CREEK is distributed internationally by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
