(January 14, 2015 – Toronto, ON) Even before the new sit-com Schitt`s Creek had aired it`s debut episode last night, the CBC proclaimed their faith in the show by ordering a second season of production. The half-hour single-camera comedy was co-created by Eugene and son Daniel Levy, who also star in the 13-episode series alongside the legendary Catherine O’Hara and rising star Annie Murphy, all of whom will return next year when season two premieres in winter 2016.

“We could not be more proud of season one of this brilliant comedy series and the talented team behind it,” said Sally Catto, general manager, programming, CBC Television. “We are confident that audiences across the country will fall in love with Schitt`s Creek this year and eagerly await its return next year.”

“This is a very exciting announcement!” said Eugene Levy. “Daniel and I, along with everyone on our production team, have worked extremely hard to give CBC, and all Canadians, a funny, entertaining half hour of television and we could not be more appreciative of the ongoing support CBC has shown us.”

The series centres around a wealthy family who suddenly find themselves broke and forced to live in Schitt`s Creek, a small, depressing town they once bought as a joke. With their pampered lives now abandoned, they must confront their new-found poverty and discover what it means to be a family, all within the confines of their new home.

Schitt`s Creek is commissioned by CBC and produced by Not A Real Company Productions Inc. The executive producers are Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Andrew Barnsley, Fred Levy and Ben Feigin. Schitt`s Creek is distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
