Saying goodbye to the award-winning show “Schitt’s Creek” last year was tough—like, losing your mansion and moving into a motel level-tough. But if hours of rewatching the Pop TV queer, inclusive hit has taught us anything, it’s that as one door closes, another, even better door opens.
In a recent interview with Town & Country, creator Dan Levy gave us just enough hope for the future of “Schitt’s Creek,” teasing that the hilariously histrionic family could most certainly find a new home on the big screen one day.
Although there’s nothing in the works as of now, Levy was prompted by a comment of his Emmy Award-winning co-star Annie Murphy, to open up about the possibilities in store for “Schitt’s Creek.” In a totally David and Alexis fashion, Murphy instigates her on-screen brother, gushing about how “over the moon” she would be if the cast were to reunite on a future project last month.
Murphy, currently starring in the new role of AMC’s dark comedy Kevin Can Go F***K Himself, even went as far as to tell US Weekly, “I mean, I’ve been sending Dan $5 a day in the mail as a bribe. So far, I have not heard back about a movie officially. But, oh, my God, I would be just over the moon if that ever came to pass because I miss everyone so much every day.” She continues, convincing us that her fake bribes are of the utmost importance – and should be very real – when she mentions Catherine O’Hara, “Just to see Moira again, I would pay a lot of money to do that.”
Unfortunately, as for whether or not Levy’s working on anything “Schitt’s Creek”-related right now, his answer remains the same regardless of Murphy’s pleasant pestering. “No, not right now,” he told Town and Country. “I hope eventually.”
Levy keeps the faith alive with that hopeful “eventually.” Don’t stress, just remember how long Levy made us wait with the deliciously slow burn between Patrick and David—and that, as a historical moment for queer television, was definitely worth the wait.
He also reminds T&C, “Listen, I love everybody so much. I love Annie, even for hinting at that. We had such a great time making the show and I think if the idea is right, I would love to explore what a movie could look like. But, I don’t have that idea yet. I’m still searching for it.”
The best thing diehard “Schitt’s Creek” stans can do is give Dan the love and support he needs to find the inspiration for his famous family’s next endeavor, and perhaps, learn from Murphy that bribes are not gonna do the trick!
“My fingers are crossed, but I also think you need to give people a little time to miss you. So, I’m taking some time and we’ll see what happens in the next couple of years, but my fingers are tightly crossed.”
