Great news for the people behind the new CBC TV series Schitt's Creek.

The first season premieres Tuesday Jan. 13 with back-to-back episodes at 9 p.m.

And the CBC has announced that the second season has already been renewed and is set to premiere in winter 2016. 

Series co-created by Eugene and Dan Levy 

The comedy is co-created by Eugene and Dan Levy, who also star in the 13-episode series, along with the legendary Catherine O' Hara and rising star Annie Murphy. 

All of the actors will return for season two. 

"This is a very exciting announcement!” said Eugene Levy. “Daniel and I, along with everyone on our 

production team, have worked extremely hard to give CBC, and all Canadians, a funny, entertaining half 

hour of television and we could not be more appreciative of the ongoing support CBC has shown us."

Schitt's Creek premieres Tuesday

The series centres around a wealthy family who suddenly find themselves broke and forced to live in 

Schitt's Creek, a small, depressing town they once bought as a joke. With their pampered lives now 

abandoned, they must confront their new-found poverty and discover what it means to be a family, all 

within the confines of their new home. 

Remember to tune in on Tuesday Jan. 13 at 9 p.m. to see for yourself why the CBC is confident the witty and original series will resonate with Canadians.
