You know how we hate it when our favorite TV shows leave Netflix, from Friends to The Vampire Diaries to Gossip Girl. Joining these streamer-jumping series is Schitt's Creek, the Emmy-winning Canadian sitcom about the lovably awful Rose family and their hilarious fall from wealth. 

But just because Johnny (Eugene Levy), Moira (Catherine O’Hara), David (Daniel Levy), and Alexis (Annie Murphy) are leaving Netflix doesn't mean we have to say goodbye to them altogether. The funny foursome has already found a new streaming home as of October 2022—here's where to stream Schitt's Creek online, no matter where you are in the world.

Why is 'Schitt's Creek' leaving Netflix?

Schitt's Creek originally aired on Pop TV here in the states and CBC in its native Canada from 2015 through 2020, but many discovered the small-budget Canuck sitcom on Netflix when it began streaming on the platform after its third season. The extra eyes helped get the show some much-deserved critical acclaim, scoring four Primetime Emmy nominations in 2019 and winning a record nine Emmys in 2020. 

So, with all of that success, why is Schitt's Creek leaving Netflix? Well, unsurprisingly, it comes down to money: when the show's licensing agreement with the platform was up, Hulu outbid Netflix to gain exclusive US streaming rights to the show.
