Thankfully, Netflix helped raise the profile of the series by being the streaming home for the first five seasons, and soon, the entire series will be even easier to find.

(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a new series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The Show: Schitt’s Creek
Where You Can Stream It: Netflix (with the exception of the recent season 6, which hasn’t been added there yet)
The Pitch: The obscenely wealthy Rose family loses all their money, and are forced to move into a run-down motel in the small backwater town of Schitt’s Creek.
