Schitt's Creek Drops Trailer & Dan Levy Sends Love to Fan Who Came Out

Schitt's Creek

"Sending you so. much. love."

With season 6 of Schitt's Creek just four weeks away, creators and fans alike are reminding us why this show has been embraced by so many.

Premiering on CBC in Canada and Pop TV in the U.S. on January 7, the Emmy-nominated comedy is returning one last time to wrap up the story of the Rose family: former wealthy socialites who had to move to a quirky town in the middle of nowhere after being swindled out of their fortune.

A new trailer that dropped this week opens with Catherine O'Hara's resplendently attired Moira Rose, inviting viewers to "join me for a little stroll through the slice of paradise I like to call ... the town where I currently am."

It also involves some quality bickering between David and Alexis (Dan Levy and Annie Murphy), a little future father/son-in-law bonding time with Johnny and Patrick (Eugene Levy and Noah Reid), and Moira slapping the shit out of someone -- things fans can all get behind.

Plus, the trailer answers a few questions we had after the first teaser videos last month: it looks like Alexis is decidedly not in the Galapagos Islands with her boyfriend Ted (Dustin Milligan); she is helping plan David and Patrick's wedding. And Moira's movie career may not be as dead as we thought.

The trailer comes right on the heels of the Critics Choice Awards nominations, which include Schitt's Creek in the Best Comedy Series category and all four Rose family actors in the acting categories, giving the show the most nominations for a comedy series.

Still wondering where this ever-growing popularity comes from? Look no further than a heartfelt video sent to Dan Levy by a young fan named Ellie from Scotland, who found the courage to come out to her thankfully supportive family after watching Patrick's coming-out episode in season 5.

"I was watching it, and Patrick had just come out, and I was like 'Wow, I should do that,'" she said. "So I rewinded it and I watched him come out again, and then I rewinded it again, and then I cried a little bit. But it was like an 'I'm gonna do this' cry."

Dan Levy shared the video saying it had brought him to tears, and it's been viewed more than 117,000 times so far, with co-stars Noah Reid and Sarah Levy and queer icons like k.d. lang and Orange is the New Black star Lori Petty sending their love.

The sixth and final season of Schitt's Creek premieres on Pop TV on Tuesday, January 7 at 9 p.m. Eastern.
