Eugene Levy says a Schitt’s Creek revival is possible. The actor made the revelation in an interview with Radio Times, saying it’s a never say never situation. There have even been discussions with his son and series co-creator, Dan, about the future of the hit comedy. “We’d love to get together and take the show and the characters to yet another level,” the 76-year-old said.

Although he confirmed that nothing is officially in the works, Levy said they have never stopped thinking about what might happen down the line. “We’re certainly open to anything,” he told the publication. I think when the right idea presents itself we’ll probably act,” he continued. Eugene Levy won over a new generation of fans with Schitt’s Creek.

Created by father and son duo, Dan and Eugene Levy, the series aired on CBC Television from 2015 to 2020. Consisting of 80 episodes spread over six seasons, Schitt’s Creek follows the trials and tribulations of the formerly wealthy Rose family. After their business manager embezzles money from the family business, they are forced to move to the titular small town which they purchased as a joke.

Living in adjoining motel rooms, Johnny (Eugene Levy) and Moira (Catherine O’Hara), along with their adult children, David (Dan Levy) and Alexis (Annie Murphy), must adjust to life without wealth. Schitt’s Creek also featured a stellar supporting cast which featured Emily Hampshire as David’s best friend, Stevie Budd. Chris Elliott appeared as the town’s Mayor, Roland Schitt.

Sarah Levy is featured as Twyla Sands, the ditzy waitress of the Café Tropical. Noah Reid joined the Schitt’s Creek cast as Patrick Brewer in season three as David’s business partner.

Schitt’s Creek also featured John Hemphill as Bob Currie, Tim Rozon as Mutt Schitt, Karen Robinson as Veronica “Ronnie” Lee, Rizwan Manji as Ray Butani, Robin Duke as Wendy Kurtz, and Steve Lund as Jake. The series received critical acclaim and earned a cult following during its run. Along with several Canadian accolades, the comedy received two Screen Actors Guild Awards.

For its portrayal of LGBTQ+ people, the show received three GLAAD Media Award nominations, winning the Outstanding Comedy Series trophy twice.

While fans miss tuning in for new Schitt’s Creeks episodes, they aren’t the only ones missing the Rose family. “I miss the cast,” Eugene Levy told Radio Times. “It was a great production. Mostly everybody was on the show for all six years. It was really just such a delightful show to do,” he added.

Levy explained that working with his son and daughter on Schitt’s Creek was a gift to fatherhood. “I thought it was hitting on all cylinders pretty much from the first season right through to our last,” he concluded.
