It's not a new season but at this point, we'll take what we can get! On April 26, the Schitt's Creek cast will join other Canadian celebrities in a commercial-free 90-minute special to support front-line workers fighting the global pandemic. Titled Stronger Together, Tous Ensembles, the display will feature musical artists like Michael Buble and Justin Bieber, as well as Cirque Du Soleil and Avril Lavigne. Oh, and the entire Schitt's cast.
According to CBC Annie Murphy, Catherine O'Hara, Chris Elliott, Dan Levy, Dustin Milligan, Emily Hampshire, Eugene Levy, Jenn Robertson, John Hemphill, Karen Robinson, Noah Reid, Rizwan Manji, and Sarah Levy are all on board. This was also all evident in a screenshot of a video conference Dan Levy posted to Twitter.
"Gang's all here for a very good cause!" Levy wrote. "CBC will be broadcasting a multi-platform, commercial-free, 90-minute special in support of front-line workers across Canada during the [ongoing] pandemic this Sunday!"
The special will air on CBC TV, CBC Gem, CBC Listen, CBC Radio One, and CBC Music. Those watching and listening are encouraged to support Food Banks Canada.
Following the broadcast, there will be a "virtual ensemble performance" released on all streaming platforms. That project will feature "more than two dozen of Canada's biggest international stars, homegrown favorites, and brightest newcomers," according to CBC. Maybe Noah Reid will grace the track with his vocals? Or maybe Dan Levy could use this as a moment to announce a special? Give us something!
