It’s time for fans to prepare to check out of the Rosebud Motel one final time. The Schitt’s Creek series finale is scheduled to air next month on April 7. In honour of the show bringing their six-season era to an end, it’s been announced that a special documentary is set to air after the finale.
According to Deadline, the hour-long documentary will be called Best Wishes, Warmest Regards: A Schitt’s Creek Farewell and is being described as a “must-watch behind-the-scenes doc” that is “the perfect way to honour a series that has made an impact in so many people’s lives.”
The official Schitt’s Creek Instagram account notes that the special will premiere both on Pop TV in the United States and in Canada on CBC.
There’s been no news on whether or not the special will be available for streaming on platforms like Netflix.
Deadline reports that the behind the scenes footage will showcase things like the shows final table read, audition tapes, and wardrobe fittings. The platform revealed that the documentary will feature moments from the entirety of the main cast.
Although fans of the show have expressed their disappointment over the show ending in the past, cast members like Emily Hampshire have assured fans they’ll be “satisfied” as well as “pleasantly surprised and hopeful” with the series final episode.
However, the series finale might not even be the end for the Canadian comedy. Co-creator and star Dan Levy has confirmed that he isn’t opposed to ever shooting a Schitt’s Creek movie, there would just have to be “a reason for it.”
The Schitt’s Creek series finale airs April 7 at 8:00 pm EST on CBC.
