What Was So Special About Schitt’s Creek Finale Date?
Nothing sticks around forever, and no matter how earnestly you want something as poignant and beautiful as Schitt’s Creek to stay, there will be a goodbye. Schitt’s Creek, a wholly endearing embodiment of gold-standard comedy, aired its series finale last night. To normalize itself with the mixed roller coaster of emotions surrounding its. ceremonial exit, Schitt’s Creek pulled in the sitcom-wedding trope for its finale. Expectedly, there was an explosive comedic explosion before all threads resolved to something evocative. The Rose family featuring Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Dan Levy, .and Annie Murphy, had turned on its nostalgic charm to make the farewell special. But what was even more special was the date when the show ended.
April 7, 2014 – April 7, 2020, Schitt’s Creek Ends With A Heartwarming Finale
Six years ago on 7th April 2014, the cast and crew had begun shooting for Schitt’s Creek. While the show did not premiere until January 2015, the first day of shoot holds a special place in everyone’s hearts. The makers, therefore, zeroed on the same date for the Schitt’s Creek finale, to preserve a six-year-long legacy that will have no parallel.
On April 7th, 2014 — six years ago today — we started shooting this little show called #SchittsCreek.
Tonight from 8pm, we bid farewell with the #SchittsFinale.

Annie Murphy and Catherine O’Hara too reflected upon their experiences of working with ‘lovely, smart people’, and called Schitt’s creek a lifetime opportunity. Thankfully for us, we won’t have to miss Murphy and Hara on-screen even after the show ends.
Annie Murphy has already joined AMC’s ‘Kevin Can Go F___ Himself’, while Catherine O’Hara is currently shooting for a Canadian movie, ‘Extinct’.
