From a media release:

With the first season of SCHITT’S CREEK premiering this Tuesday, January 13 at 9 p.m., CBC is pleased to announce that the second season has already been greenlit and is set to premiere in winter 2016. The highly anticipated character-driven, half-hour single-camera comedy is co-created by Eugene and Daniel Levy, who also star in the 13-episode series alongside the legendary Catherine O’Hara and rising star Annie Murphy, all of whom are set to return next season.

The series centres around a wealthy family who suddenly find themselves broke and forced to live in Schitt’s Creek, a small, depressing town they once bought as a joke. With their pampered lives now abandoned, they must confront their new-found poverty and discover what it means to be a family, all within the confines of their new home.

SCHITT’S CREEK is commissioned by CBC, produced by Not A Real Company Productions Inc. and created by Eugene Levy and Daniel Levy.  The executive producers are Eugene Levy, Daniel Levy, Andrew Barnsley, Fred Levy and Ben Feigin.  SCHITT’S CREEK is distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.

One thought on “CBC orders second season of Schitt’s Creek”

  1. I would like to know the website where I can promote the show. CBC site sent me to Twitter which I could not get on.

    This is a great comedy but is going to be a sleeper for a bit without fans like me. let it go on.

    How can I contact the Levy’s to let them know? You were right son in letting your Dad know you were too serious at Canadian Film Awards. I really hate these games where I get writing e-mails to give comments. Hopefully when show is a better success you do not have to do this. I hate it that bad publicity gets more attention than good.

    p.s. the Kardashin’s and other shows like that I turn off on my TV.

    This show is so great I wish it was on for an hour.
