“When we postponed the Schitt’s Creek: The Farwell tour, we had every hope and intention of traveling to see you later this year,” the Levys wrote. “However, despite our best efforts to reschedule while keeping your health and safety at the forefront, we’ve found that state and local mandates vary too widely to do so in the near future. So, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all tour dates that were scheduled pre-pandemic.”
“We’re so sorry to be missing you,” they wrote in closing, “and we will continue to to try to find a way to see you in the future.”
Schitt’s Creek: The Farewell Tour, first planned in March 2020 and then postponed due to the pandemic, was supposed to be a celebration of the beloved Canadian comedy, which concluded its sixth and last season in April of last year. The Levys, along with co-stars Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy, Emily Hampshire, and Noah Reid, were slated to perform in locations such as Los Angeles, Phoenix, Chicago, Boston, and Washington, D.C.
The series, which premiered in 2015, followed members of the opulent Rose family as they were forced to relocate to the village they had acquired as a joke when their money ran out.
Schitt’s Creek was a series that grew in popularity over time, eventually gaining a large fanbase and earning several accolades. In its first three seasons, it was only recognized by Canadian award shows, but it began to gain traction in the United States in 2018 when it became the first Canadian series to be nominated for a Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Comedy.
In 2019, the series was nominated for four Emmys, but none of them were won. However, it won seven awards in 2020, surpassing the record for the most wins by a comedy series in a single year.
