Schitt’s Creek became a runaway hit for acclaimed comedic actor Eugene Levy, and for his MuchMusic VJ-turned-actor Dan Levy. Along with Catherine O’Hara, a comedic legend in her own right, and Annie Murphy, relative newcomer with staying power, they return to Toronto shoot a fourth, highly anticipated season.
Schitt’s Creek is one of only a few notably Canadian shows that have become crossover hits in the States, which is not only a blessing but also a testament to Schitt’s Creek‘s appeal.

The sly Canadian comedy troupe Royal Canadian Air Farce has promised to come out of retirement and give us two specials, one of which will air on Canada Day, and the other on New Years Eve, recreating one of their old traditions.
There’s no telling if it’ll be completely new, if they’ll resurrect characters and sketches, or some form of both.
Now all we have to do is wait.
Filming: April 10, 2017 to May 20, 2017
If you haven’t heard of Stockholm yet, you soon will. Ethan Hawke (Before Midnight, Boyhood) and Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, Swedish Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy) are set to star in the film, a crime movie based on the true story of a heist in Stockholm in 1973, where hostages bonded with their captors. If this sounds familiar, it’s because this is where the term “Stockholm Syndrome” began.
Look for it some time next year.
Filming: April 23, 2017 to August 15, 2017
