Everybody remain calm because a Schitt’s Creek movie could literally (said in Moira accent) be happening. And we love that journey for them.
In an interview with Jeremy Parsons and Janine Rubenstein for the People, EW and TNT’s SAG Awards pre-show, Sarah Levy, who played Café Tropical owner Twyla, said she’d be “here” for a movie.
“I keep hearing about a movie!” Levy said. “This remains to be seen, but I’m here for it if that’s the case.”
The actress starred in the popular sensation alongside brother and father Dan and Eugene Levy, who co-created the series. The show was nominated for five SAG Awards last night for its final season, and took home the award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series, as well as Female Actor in Comedy Series for Catherine O’Hara’s role, Moira Rose.
Sarah told Parsons and Rubenstein that the family has had many conversations about the show around the dinner table over the years.
“It’s just been an ongoing conversation for close to a decade at this point, and so the success of it hasn’t changed the conversations,” she said. “It was really just the quality of the show that was the most important part, and everything else was just the cherry on top.”
The show premiered in 2015 on Canadian network CBC and followed an affluent family’s fall from wealth when they’re forced to move to their only piece of property left: a small town in the middle of nowhere called Schitt’s Creek, where they meet and grow close to the locals who live there played by Emily Hampshire, Chris Elliot, Noah Reid, Dustin Milligan and more.
Years after the show’s premiere it garnered much attention and praise and has become a huge global sensation. Last year, they even swept the Emmys, taking home a whopping nine awards for their final season.
What a, er, happy ending a movie would be for the Rose family and their friends. So here’s to hoping we see all the beloved characters on the big screen because it would be “simply the best.”
