“Ew, David — you’re writing a book?”
That’s right, Schitt’s Creek fans. Our favorite father-son duo Eugene and Daniel Levy, co-creators and stars of the heartwarming TV hit, are working together again. This time, they’re releasing an official Schitt’s Creek book titled Best Wishes, Warmest Regards. (Fans will remember this is also the title of the official Schitt’s Creek documentary on Netflix.)
When the series ended last year, fans had mixed feelings about saying goodbye to the Roses. Their larger-than-life personalities tread the line of being just this side of too much, but they were always one pop culture’s more lovable family units. The series wrapped up everyone’s storylines in a very neat bow, leaving fans with happy memories of our pals. After the series wrapped, Dan Levy said he had no plans to continue the show, unless “an idea pops into my head, [but] it has to be really freaking good because this is a nice way to say goodbye.”
The book won’t be a continuation of the series, but rather a celebration of the show. According to Glamour magazine, the book will capture the “essence and alchemy of all six seasons,” including, “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 part of the global phenomenon that is Schitt’s Creek,” said Jamie Coleman, the Publishing Director at Trapeze Books. “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.
Best Wishes, Warmest Regards will be available October 26, 2021.
