Now in its third season on Pop, which will air the finale on Wednesday, April 5 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT, SCHITT’S CREEK is the network’s most-watched original series (Nielsen L+7, P2+) with more than a half million nightly viewers. Season three is up double-digits from season two (+20%) and season one (+39%), with all key demos delivering significant increases.

Chris Elliott, who stars as the town mayor Roland, also returns in season four, as well as series regulars Emily Hampshire, Sarah Levy and Jennifer Robertson.
“SCHITT’S CREEK has become a brand-defining television series for Pop—a culturally relevant, clever, full of heart comedy that is perfect for these crazy times,” said Brad Schwartz, President of Pop. “Season after season, we are seeing significant audience growth, heightened buzz, critical acclaim and award-season chatter. We expect even more in season four.”
