The prime-time award winning comedy show Schitt’s Creek may have wrapped up its series finale with its last and final episode on April 7th of this year but that doesn’t mean the fun, tears, and joyful moments are over for the dysfunctional Rose family. Just two days ago, Netflix dropped a 44-minute documentary film about the global phenomena that is Schitt’s Creek and it’s everything you dreamed it would be.
Best Wishes, Warmest Regards takes you on a 44-minute backstage tour of Schitt’s Creek through the six years of its creation. The documentary includes interviews with cast members, adorable audition tapes, the writing process of the show and its conception, and, most importantly, the creation of those ridiculous Moira Rose outfits you see on screen.
Not only will Dan Levy and cast members make you relive your favorite moments of Schitt’s Creek, laughs and plenty of tears included, the documentary speaks of the emotional cultural impact of the show for LGBTQ+ individuals worldwide. The show continues to be praised for its normalization of LGBTQ+ people and their experiences. Instead of portraying the LGBTQ+ character as tragic, Levy and his writing team display stories free of homophobia and packed with meaningful character arcs, love and acceptance.
Fans of the show who were unable to watch the final season of Schitt’s Creek during its original premiere will be happy to know season six is also now available for streaming two days earlier than scheduled, allowing viewers to see the tear-jerking series finale. Just make sure you have your tissues ready!
