The final season of the hit TV comedy Schitt's Creek kicks off this week, and legions of people are sad to see the show go — but the diehard fans, who call themselves "SchittHeads" are experiencing that sadness at a completely different level.

As followers prepare for one last pilgrimage to the set, q's Tom Power spoke with Halifax superfan Louise Downs, organizer of the Schitt's Creek fan convention known as SchittCon.

In this exclusive travel guide to the real Schitt's Creek, we also visit Goodwood, Ont., the small town where much of the show is shot.
