Schitt’s Creek will be capping off the LGBTQ-friendly series with a documentary that will air next month.
The show’s creator, Dan Levy, broke the good news on Instagram: “Some nice news in a dark time!”
On April 7th, the series finale of the six-season-long show will be followed by an hour-long special entitled Best Wishes, Warmest Regards: A Schitt’s Creek Farewell. The special will include behind-the-scenes footages and commentary from Levy and the other cast members.
According to a press release, fans will also get a look into “wardrobe fittings, the emotional final table read, audition tapes, and more.” The special will air on Pop TV, Comedy Central, and Logo, according to Out.
“As we celebrate the end of Schitt’s Creek, we couldn’t do it without creating a special TV moment to send this historic series out on top,” said Pop TV President Brad Schwartz. “This must-watch behind the scenes doc is the perfect way to honor a series that has made an impact in so many people’s lives, with enduring characters and stories filled with heart, humor, and honesty that will stand the test of time.”
Levy received this year’s Visibility Award from the Human Rights Campaign for his work on Schitt’s Creek. Along with creating the show, Levy also stars as David Rose, one of the first openly pansexual characters on television.
