Dan Levy Penned a Heartfelt Farewell Note for Schitt's Creek Team and Fans & Now We're Crying
Dan Levy's Farewell Note for 'Schitt's Creek' Fans Has Us Emotional AF
The star and co-creator called the queer-inclusive sitcom "the love of my life."
Dan Levy wrote a tear-inducing letter of thanks to the cast, crew, and fans of Schitt's Creek.
"This show has been the love of my life for the past seven years," wrote the gay actor, who co-created and starred as David Rose in the groundbreaking PopTV comedy, on social media.
"Getting to tell these stories, build these characters, and watch them grow has been a privilege for which I will always be grateful," he said. "Working with this brilliant cast and crew and basking in the glow of their extraordinary talent for six amazing seasons are what I’m going to miss the most."
"We built a family on those sets and it's reassuring to know that time won't ever change that. I love you guys more than you will ever know."
The finale of Schitt's Creek aired Tuesday, along with a documentary about the show's skyrocketing popularity and impact. (Even Mariah Carey, a favorite artist of David's, is a stan.) The last episode ended with David marrying his fiancé, Patrick (Noah Reid), the end of a long-running relationship that was considered a game-changing story for LGBTQ+ representation on TV.
The feel-good series also stars Eugene Levy, Catherine O'Hara, and Annie Murphy as the Roses—a rich family that loses its money and was forced to move to the small town of Schitt's Creek, where they end up learning how to be better people. O'Hara's character, Moira, is considered a gay icon due to her over-the-top personality, couture wardrobe, and large collection of wigs.
In his letter, Levy thanks fans "taking the time out of your busy lives to watch our show."
"Getting to share this show with you, getting to watch you champion it, tell your friends about it, herald its messages of love and acceptance and decency with such empathy and passion...that is something I will never forget," he penned.
"You’ve taught me that television has the power to not only bring people together in profound and inspiring ways, but also the power to change conversations and consequently, change lives," he said. "I know that you all have certainly changed mine."
