For those who learned how to “fold in the cheese” and swooned over Patrick’s rendition of the late Tina Turner’s hit "Simply the Best," it will come as welcome news that the creators and executive producers of the award-winning Canadian comedy series Schitt’s Creek are open to bringing the Rose family back.

As producer Andrew Barnsley revealed exclusively to The Messenger, more antics could come within Schitt’s Creek.

“It’s something that we know there’s demand and interest for it, really,” said, the outlet reports. “It’s something that I know Dan and Eugene [Levy] are considering all the time, and I think it’s going to be a timing thing.”

Even though he did not have any updates on plans for whether, how, or when a project would proceed, he pointed out that the creators “love the world” in which the town and characters are set and that, for that reason, it would be a shame to see it be tarnished with a rushed undertaking.

Upon its debut in 2015, Schitt’s Creek quickly gained a cult following. By the end of its sixth season, producers wanted to go out on a high note with Emmys and GLAAD awards.

The global pandemic caused people to retreat inside and seek new things to watch, so the show became a mainstream hit. A Netflix pickup of the show boosted its popularity even more.

Siblings David and Alexis and their parents, Moira and Johnny Rose, are a wealthy family who lose everything except ownership of a small town that Johnny bought for his son as a joke at some point called Schitt’s Creek. The family moves to a motel in the village, and shenanigans ensue as they settle into their new home in more humble surroundings.

The show was praised for its honest and authentic portrayal of gay people by telling the story of David and Patrick, who start as business partners but end up falling in love and eventually getting married.
