Pop Orders Third Season of 'Schitt's Creek'

Pop's first and most-watched original series, the sitcom Schitt's Creek, has been renewed for a third, 13-episode series, ahead of the 8 p.m. ET/PT Wednesday, March 16, beginning of its second season. SCTV alums Catherine O'Hara and Eugene Levy star as the luckless Roses, who lose a fortune except for a dumpy town and motel where they re-settle.

The show was co-created and is written by Eugene Levy and his son, Daniel, who also stars, along with Annie Murphy. (Here's our review from when it launched in 2015.) The third season will air in 2017.

Pop said Schitt's Creek was its most-watched original series in total viewers and was the biggest draw on the network overall among viewers ages 18-34.

The ensemble cast also includes Chris Elliott and Jennifer Robertson as Roland and Jocelyn Schitt -- and they also star in a faux talk show companion digital series, Wake Up With The Schitt's, now available on Funny or Die.
