"Schitt's Creek" on Netflix & Hulu
It was a big year for "Schitt's Creek," which made history at the 2020 Emmys when it swept all seven comedy categories. The Canadian series, which was created by father-son duo Eugene Levy and Dan Levy, follows a once-affluent family who, after losing their fortune, is forced to relocate to the remaining asset they still own — a small town called Schitt's Creek that they bought on a whim (and as a joke). For six seasons, audiences fell in love with the Rose family as they adjusted to their new, humbler lives. Despite facing some heavy competition from fellow nominees like "Insecure," "Dead to Me" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," "Schitt's Creek" reigned supreme, winning for best comedy series as well as best lead actor, lead actress, supporting actor and supporting actress plus best writing, directing and even best contemporary costumes and best casting. The first five seasons of "Schitt's Creek" are available to stream on Netflix, while the sixth and final season is set to debut on the streaming service on Oct. 8.
