It’s been nearly 16 months since we said goodbye to the Rose family in the series finale of Schitt’s Creek, but don’t worry, they’ll be back in our lives sooner than we thought!
Today Glamour is reporting that Dan and Eugene Levy, the father-son pair who created the hit, Emmy-winning comedy series, have sold a book — Best Wishes, Warmest Regards: The Story of Schitt’s Creek — to Trapeze Books and will release it in October of this year! That’s so soon!
The book is said to capture the “essence and alchemy of all six seasons,” and celebrate “the town, the characters, and the state of mind that is Schitt’s Creek.”
“As a self-proclaimed fan since its launch in 2015, I’m delighted to be a part of the global phenomenon that is Schitt’s Creek,” Trapeze Books publishing director Jamie Coleman said in a statement.
“The show has established a position as the kind of escapist television that we’ve needed in tumultuous times. To enter the world of Schitt’s Creek is to escape to somewhere you don’t want to leave and for so many viewers, the series finishing left them bereft,” Coleman continued. “Reading Best Wishes, Warmest Regards is like taking a trip back to the Rosebud Motel with the cast as your guide, a feel-good journey back to the creek that we all need.“
When Schitt’s Creek ended its run last year, it went out as one of the most popular and critically-acclaimed sitcoms of the last decade. The show won 9 Emmys, including sweeping all the comedy acting awards, for it's final season.
While the show is officially over, Levy has said that he hasn’t ruled out a return to the beloved Rose family. After his co-star Annie Murphy said that she’d be excited to return to the show in movie format, Levy said that it’s always a possibility, but probably not any time soon.
“We had such a great time making the show and I think if the idea is right, I would love to explore what a movie could look like,” he said. “But, I don't have that idea yet. I'm still searching for it. My fingers are crossed, but I also think you need to give people a little time to miss you. So, I'm taking some time and we'll see what happens in the next couple of years, but my fingers are tightly crossed."
You can currently preorder the book Best Wishes, Warmest Regards online. It will be available in bookstores on October 26.
