The sixth and last season of the little Canadian show that could was supposed to reach the streaming platform on October 7, but for reasons unknown—perhaps our collective wish for a happy distraction—it arrived a few days early, on October 3.
Series star, writer, and cocreator Dan Levy announced the news on Twitter, writing, “Surprise! Season 6 & the Best Wishes, Warmest Regards documentary just dropped early on @netflix @Netflix_CA! Have a great weekend!” Along with the message was a perfect GIF of his onscreen mom, Moira Rose (Catherine O'Hara), in one of her wildest wigs.
He followed it up with the disclaimer “*all things considered…” because, you know, the weekend might not exactly be “great” considering…*gestures widely at 2020.*
Netflix simply wrote, “Couldn't wait until Tuesday,” as its explanation for the moment of bliss.
Best Wishes, Warmest Regards is a documentary about the development of the show and the making of the final season. According to Entertainment Weekly, Netflix was instrumental in helping the show gain popularity and momentum. New fans found and streamed the previous seasons, propelling the CBC/PopTV show from a cult favorite to the hit of the year.
As of pub time on October 3, the show is trending at number 10 in the U.S. on Netflix, and people on Twitter are celebrating the drop. Listen, this show will make you feel things.
Schitt's Creek made history at this year's Emmy Awards, becoming the first comedy to win all four acting categories in the same year—along with the rest of its accolades. The story of the wealthy Rose family, who lost their video rental chain fortune through no fault of their own, was notable for taking place in a working-class town without bigotry or homophobia. David's (Dan Levy) romance with his business partner Patrick (Noah Reid), a major story arc for the second half of the series, was especially heartwarming.
If you're curious about how it all turns out, well, just head on over to Netflix already.
