Get Ready to Rehearse Saying "Ew, David" Because 'Schitt's Creek' Is Doing a Farewell Tour
Those who can't get over the sadness of the impending end of 'Schitt's Creek' will be thrilled to learn that the cast is doing a farewell tour.
After five years on the air and countless quotes, Schitt's Creek is coming to an end in April of 2020. The show — which is led by father-son duo Eugene and Dan Levy — centers around the Rose family, who moves to the town of Schitt's Creek following the loss of their fortune.
Though the Roses initially hate their new town, and the motel they're forced to live in, they ultimately grow to love it, and they even forge lasting relationships along the way (though it's too soon to talk about Ted and Alexis's breakup).
Nothing will soften the blow that is the thought of Schitt's Creek rapidly approaching the end, but there is some good news to celebrate the end of one of TV's most culturally important comedies.
There is going to be a Schitt's Creek farewell tour from May to July of 2020 — meaning that we can prolong our sadness in saying goodbye to the Roses, Stevie, and Roland until the summertime. Read on to find out all of the details of the farewell tour (like how far you'll have to travel to see it), how to get tickets, and what it entails.
What is the 'Schitt's Creek' farewell tour?
The thought of not hearing Moira Rose (Catherine O'Hara) saying "bebe" on a weekly basis is a travesty, but the farewell tour will be a celebration of the show that has become an iconic staple. Most of the major players will be part of the tour, including both Dan and Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, Annie Murphy (Alexis Rose), Emily Hampshire (Stevie Bud), and Chris Elliott (Roland Schitt).
As if seeing the cast wasn't a huge treat in and of itself, they will also be discussing the most infamous moments from the series, including how they came to be. In addition, they'll also be sharing some behind-the-scenes footage, which we hope includes a tour into the costume area so we can see the options that didn't make it into Moira Rose's closet.
