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 (18) | Top Critics (7)

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.

Jan 16, 2019 | Full Review…

Schitt's Creek is a perfect sitcom for viewers who don't want TV shows pandering to us, but do desire comedies that deliver genuine human emotions instead of only punchlines.

Mar 11, 2021 | Full Review…

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…

Like "Citizen Kane," it's called the Rosebud Hotel for a reason. The simple things in life outweigh the riches. ... You might think the show would stick around longer since it just now popped into pop culture, but that's not its style.

Jul 18, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | 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.

Audience Reviews for Schitt's Creek: Season 5

  • Mar 09, 2021
    Just a bad season. The jokes haven't been funny since season 2 and there's only so many facial expressions that David can make to get you to laugh.
  • Jan 02, 2021
    Truly my favorite TV show of all-time.
  • Dec 29, 2020
    As good as comedic television can get.
  • Nov 29, 2020
    I never expected this show could get better and better in every season. But it did!! I was a little lost and uninterested at the first season but then I kept watching and the show starts to pour in elements of warmth and love and purposes in life that keep enriching itself season after season. Very good acting and jokes are on point. I keep anticipating that one day the Roses will come all the way back to take back what they've lost and be wealthy again, only this time with lots of love, passions, and compassions! This would make a great ending!

    More same... just more... same. I don't think they are going to be able to wrap this one up for me. There's just not a whole lot here.
  • Oct 04, 2020
    Schitt's Creek just keeps getting better and better, still my favorite comedy show of all time and my favorite show of all time. The writing is just phenomenal, especially the continues evolution of David and Patrick's relationship, Moira and Johnny finding there place in the world again, and Alexis finally growing up and finding here place in the world as well. The performances from Catherine O'Hara, Dan Levy, Eugene Levy, Noah Reid, Emily Hampshire, Annie Murphy, Chris Elliott, Jennifer Robertson, and Dustin Milligan were exceptional. Robin Duke, Karen Robinson, Rizwan Manji, Sarah Levy, and John Hemphill gave stupendous supporting performances. The chemistry between the whole cast is just remarkable, they play off of each perfectly and are one of the most hilarious ensemble casts of all time if not the most hilarious of all time. The costumes were outstanding especially on Catherine O'Hara, Annie Murphy, and Dan Levy. The makeup and hairstyling was excellent especially on Catherine O'Hara, Jennifer Robertson, Emily Hampshire, Annie Murphy, and Dan Levy. The music is superb as always. Another A+ season.

    Love it! Great ensemble. Hilarious.
  • Sep 13, 2020
    David and Patrick are the best thing in the history of television.
  • 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!
