Seasons one through four will be available to stream on the CW Seed App and CWSeed.com starting today, Sunday, August 4, it was announced at TCA.

“We love everything about Schitt’s Creek – the comedy acting, writing as well as the show’s binge-ability. All of which are perfect for the CW Seed audience,” said Rick Haskins, Executive Vice President, The CW. “We’re excited to help expand the awareness and hope to generate new fans of this brilliant series on our free, ad-supported platform.”

The series follows a wealthy family who suddenly find themselves broke and forced to live in Schitt’s Creek, a small town they once bought as a joke. Schitt’s Creek will premiere its sixth and final season on Pop TV in the U.S. in early 2020.
