Dan Levy has responded to recent Schitt's Creek movie rumours started by co-star Annie Murphy and said that he "would love to explore" the idea of a film adaptation.
The sleeper hit comedy show - created by Dan and his father Eugene Levy - became a huge commercial and critical success in its final series and made history at last year's Emmy Awards after sweeping all seven major comedy awards, breaking the record for most wins for a comedy show in a single season.
Fans are already eager to see the Rose family, including Levy's David, Murphy's Alexis, Eugene's hapless dad Johnny and Catherine O'Hara's formidable matriarch Moira, reunite on screen, and Levy has revealed that could be a possibility in the future.
"I hope eventually," Levy told Town & Country about a potential film. "Listen, I love everybody so much. I love Annie, even for hinting at that. 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.
"But, I don't have that idea yet. I'm still searching for it. So, 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."
Murphy, who plays Levy's onscreen sister in the comedy, had showed her support for a Schitt's Creek movie by telling US Weekly: "I mean, I’ve been sending Dan $5 a day in the mail as a bribe. So far, I have not heard back about a movie officially. But, oh, my God, I would be just over the moon if that ever came to pass because I miss everyone so much every day. Just to see Moira again, I would pay a lot of money to do that."
The sitcom follows the trials and tribulations of the formerly stinking rich Rose family as they reluctantly relocate to a motel in the small town of Schitt's Creek that they once bought as a joke. At the 2020 Emmys, the show's accolades included Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Lead Actress (Catherine O'Hara), Outstanding Lead Actor (Eugene Levy), Outstanding Supporting Actress (Annie Murphy), and Outstanding Supporting Actor (Dan Levy).
Schitt's Creek also won for Best Directing (Andrew Cividino and Daniel Levy) and Best Writing (Daniel Levy) tonight, as well as Outstanding Contemporary Costumes and Outstanding Casting.
Schitt's Creek is available to stream on Netflix.
