Oh Schitt! Schitt's Creek Returns Jan. 11; Amazon Renews One Mississippi

Schitt's Creek

No "Rose" is without a thorn in Schitt's Creek, as the critically lauded scripted comedy returns on Pop for season three on Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 8:00 PM, ET/PT. Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Daniel Levy and Annie Murphy will make their comedic return as the Rose family in season three, which will also bring back cast regulars Chris Elliott, Emily Hampshire and Jennifer Robertson. The third season will include 13 half-hour episodes. Viewers can catch-up on past seasons at poptv.com, video-on-demand through cable and satellite TV providers and on Amazon Prime. In season three of Schitt's Creek, the Roses find themselves at a crossroads between longing for the life of extreme wealth and extravagance they left behind and embracing the ho-hum, make-shift but loveable town they've reluctantly come to call home. While Johnny (Eugene Levy) continues to explore business opportunities that could help his family's plight, Moira (Catherine O'Hara) finds herself faced with difficulties while on the town council. Their adult children Alexis (Annie Murphy) and David (Daniel Levy) both realize their love lives are extremely complicated, neither one being able to fully break away from former relationships. While the Roses still hold out hope of returning to the lap of luxury, they continue to move forward with caviar dreams on a beer budget, realizing with each passing day that Schitt's Creek may be the best place for them after all (#MoneyCantBuyYouHappiness).
