Tv Season Info

The Roses are finally thriving in Schitt's Creek and find themselves ready to take their personal relationships and business pursuits to the next level. Moira returns from a breakthrough film shoot in Bosnia with a clear exit strategy and a renewed sense of purpose, and with that newfound energy, she is inspired to leave her mark on the town by launching her most ambitious artistic endeavor yet. Meanwhile, the reputation of the Rosebud Motel is steadily building under Johnny's leadership, but managing the individual needs of his staff, Stevie and Roland, proves to be a greater challenge. With Rose Apothecary running smoothly, David is now focusing on nurturing his relationship with Patrick, and from apartment hunting to joining a baseball team, he proves he's willing to go the extra mile. Alexis, having finally achieved some stability in both romance and career, isn't one to let things get stale, so she tries to spice things up with Ted while contemplating a next step that could take her beyond Schitt's Creek.

Critic Reviews for Schitt's Creek Season 5

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

The series is a delight not just because of its comedic timing, but also because of the tenderness with which its primary couple approach their relationship.

Sep 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Jennifer Robertson's hilarious performance as Jocelyn remains the series' secret weapon, though the first few episodes of the season find her more or less sidelined in an "exasperated mother to newborn" plotline.

Top Critic

The fiendishly well-written comedy has a gentle sweetness to it.

Jul 26, 2019 | Full Review…

In its fifth season, the series manages to make its steady flow of transformations feel organic and endearing.

Feb 22, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Schitt's Creek isn't special because it's funny (even though it's hysterical); it's special because it's the rare comedy that allows its characters to learn and grow.

Jan 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Can one show lay claim to the title of "funniest comedy of 2019", while also being warmly humanistic and boasting the best same-sex relationship on television to date? If the show is Schitt's Creek, it turns out the answer is "absolutely."

Dec 19, 2019 | Full Review…

As the series goes along, it's less about class difference and more about a place where community welfare flourishes outside traditional systems of power.

Sep 26, 2019 | Full Review…

A happy place of television. [Full Review in Spanish]

Sep 22, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

There's no doubting that everyone on this show is having the time of their life with these larger-and-more-ludicrous-than-life roles - and it's a joy to watch.

Jul 29, 2019 | Full Review…

A 21-minute episode of television isn't necessarily going to heal the world of all of its ills, but each week it does a tremendous job of reminding us all what life could look like if we truly just loved and accepted each other.

Apr 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Still, as each season of Schitt's Creek has gotten better and better, Season 5 looks like it will bring Moira to her greatest heights yet.

Feb 13, 2019 | Full Review…

Based on the greatness of the season's first episode-which includes a ropes course, David's fear of businesswomen in sneakers, and a spreadsheet of Moira's wig wall-Schitt's Creek is entering its golden age.

Audience Reviews for Schitt's Creek: Season 5

  • May 20, 2020
    Big, huge character development, funny, and awesome.
  • May 09, 2020
    Schitt's Creek continues to wow us this season with a blend of laugh-out-loud shenanigans and heart-felt moments that'll keep you wanting more. The immense character growth from the Rose family and their relationships with the locals are what make this show so fun and relatable. But this was truly Patrick and Stevie's season, as they flourished and came into their own until the very end (Anyone else teared up when Patrick came out to his parents and Stevie poured her heart and soul in the "Maybe This Time" solo?). Can't wait to see what lies in the Final Season!

    I was wrong. The show DID get better.
  • Feb 23, 2020
    I love this series more and more with each season!!! David and Moira do a fantastic job and the whole cast is alive with fun!!!
  • Jan 23, 2020
    Another season, another bevy of memorable, touching, and hilarious moments brought to us from the Levy family. The town feels more alive than ever.
  • Dec 21, 2019
    I've become a dedicated fan. Will be so sad when Season Six wraps up, but happy for the journey that the Roses and their cohorts have taken us viewers on for the duration of the series. Laughter! Tears! "All the feels", as they say! It's all here in Schitt's Creek. Certain actors can speak volumes with the arch of an eyebrow (i.e., Dennis Franz in NYPD Blue), and Eugene and Dan Levy use their expressive brows to exquisite effect on their magnificent show.

    I laughed, I cried. Brilliant.
  • Nov 03, 2019
    I wish this show would go on forever!
  • Oct 24, 2019
    Schitt's Creek pulls through with yet another superb season, continuing to prove itself as not only one of the best modern sitcoms, but one of the most important shows as of 2019. Despite the series sometimes having an overlying sense of inconsequentiality, it maintains its much needed feel-good qualities while sprinkling in commentary regarding family, friendship, coming to terms with who you are as well as overall acceptance from others. Like every show it has its conflicts but never seems to feel weighed down by them. This is truly a much-needed show in the climate of our society today, positives always outweighing negatives while not coming off as too hammy or overhanded. Schitt's Creek is a show everyone should be watching.

    Give Catherine O'Hara an Emmy! Good show, almost aspirational. Makes me want to live in that fictional town.
