Schitt’s Creek returned to CBC for its fifth season in early 2019 and is heading to Netflix around the world in the next several months. Because the show airs first in Canada, many won’t be familiar with its TV schedule. As a result, we’re here to give you the complete lowdown on when the next season will be on Netflix.
As you all probably know by now, Schitt’s Creek is one of the hottest comedies right now. It airs in Canada on CBC and for most Netflixers, including those in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Australia, Netflix is your only way to watch. It stars Eugene Levy (seen in American Pie), Catherine O’Hara, Dan Levvy and Annie Murphy. Together, they play a family who’s losing everything financially.
The fifth season started airing on CBC in Canada back in January 2019 with the series finale dropping in Canada on April 9th. That then begins the clock for when it’ll start dropping on Netflix.
Schitt’s Creek Season 5 Netflix US Release Date
As of right now, the United States is pretty slow at picking up new seasons. That’s despite getting the new season of CBC’s other hit comedy, Kim’s Convenience the day after it finished airing.
Season 4 is expected to land on Netflix in October 2018 so that would mean season 5 is added a year later in October 2019. That’s a long wait but beyond using VoD, it’s your only choice.
In the meantime, Netflix is home to many of the biggest CBC shows all of which are worth time.
Schitt’s Creek Season 5 Netflix UK and Australia Release Date
For those in both the United Kingdom and Australia, for the past several years, Netflix has released new seasons in the same month.
Assuming the series does air in January and last up until April, Netflix should once again be getting the new season come May.
That’s now been confirmed thanks to the lineup schedules announced. The show’s official Twitter accounts also confirmed the release date in Australia. The official Netflix UK twitter account confirmed that season 5 of Schitt’s Creek is due to release on May 10th, 2019.
