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 (11) | Top Critics (4)

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.

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.

Jan 25, 2019 | 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…

Season five proves with its first episodes that it has what it takes to remain enduring. Its characters are a wondrous train wreck to behold, ever so entertaining because they are have nots who used to have it all.

Jan 22, 2019 | Full Review…

And yet the physical separation of Moira and Johnny only puts their loving relationship - one that truly anchors this show - on display.

Jan 17, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Funny and light and loopy, and able to make a meal out of what seemed like a snack. The show's fifth season, which starts Wednesday on Pop, finds it having perfected its formula.

    I can't get enough of this show. It has so much to give and keeps giving more. Can't stop laughing at the absurdities that play all too well in relevance both to the plot and it's audience. Season 6,7,8! Keep it great! "Oh my God!"
