‘Schitt’s Creek’ farewell tour canceled due to COVID-19 concerns
Dan Levy and Eugene Levy have decided to cancel the North American farewell tour of “Schitt’s Creek” due to concerns over increasing cases of COVID-19. Eugene and Dan Levy took to Twitter on Saturday to share that “Schitt’s Creek: The Farewell Tour” has been canceled due to health and safety concerns.
In the joint statement, the father-son duo wrote: “To our amazing fans at Schitt’s Creek, when we postponed the Schitt’s Creek: The Farewell Tour, we had every hope and intention to travel to see you later. This year.” “However, despite our best efforts to reprogram while keeping your health and safety at the forefront, we have found that state and local mandates vary too much to do so in the near future,” Dan and Eugene continued.
“So we made the difficult decision to cancel all the tour dates that were planned before the pandemic,” added the duo. “We’re sorry to miss you, and we’ll continue to try to find a way to see you in the future,” they said, reassuring fans that all tickets will be refunded.
The tour, which was set to celebrate the end of the Canadian Pop TV sitcom, was set to take place in cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston and Phoenix. ‘Schitt’s Creek’, which premiered in 2015 on the CBC’s Canadian network, ended its six seasons last April.
It stars Dan and Eugene alongside Catherine O’Hara and Annie Murphy as The Roses, a once affluent and disconnected family who are losing all their money and are forced to live in a small town, the last property they possesses. Along the way, they meet eccentric townspeople played by Sarah Levy, Emily Hampshire, Chris Elliot, Noah Reid, Dustin Milligan, and more.
Earlier this year, Sarah, who played the cafe’s owner Twyla, told People magazine hosts Jeremy Parsons and Janine Rubenstein that she would be in attendance for a follow-up film to the comedy series. “I keep hearing about a movie!” she said. “It remains to be seen, but I’m here for it if it does.”
Speaking to People magazine last year, Dan also opened up about a potential “Schitt’s Creek” movie. “I don’t think there’s a single person on our crew, cast or crew who wouldn’t want to come back for a movie,” he said in an interview for People magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive issue.
“But at the same time, I think the success of the show was really about the care and quality that went into it,” he continued. “If I can come up with an idea that I think builds on what we’ve done before in a way that feels good and exciting and new and fresh and challenges our actors, then that’s great. ‘fall asleep wanting this idea to come to me, “he added.
With seven Emmy wins in 2020, “Schitt’s Creek” set the record for the most wins for a comedy series in a single season, sweeping through the top four categories of comedy actor. (ANI)
