Cult comedy Schitt's Creek is set to return to screens for the final time in 2020, and while our hearts are heavy at the thought of it ending, we can't wait to have one last laugh with the Rose family.

When it began all those series ago, they were just a once-rich family who moved to the town they bought as a joke after losing everything - but that's all changed four years and five seasons on.... well, kind of.

A rare comedic gem, the Canadian sitcom has given us so many rib-tickling moments that we'll never forget - we're not joking we can't get A Little Bit Alexis' out of our heads.

Back with 14 episodes in the new year, here's everything we know so far about the sixth season of Schitt's Creek:

When will Schitt's Creek season six air?

Schitt's Creek will return for its final season on Tuesday, 7th January, on CBC in Canada and Pop TV in the U.S. However, while we have yet to get an air date for when UK fans will be able to watch the beloved comedy, it's expected to hit screens in early 2020.

The acclaimed series is available to viewers this side of the pond on Netflix, but the streaming service hasn't confirmed when the final series will be on their service.

Meanwhile, the final series was first teased in September with clip captioned: "Tick tock...". In the short video, fans watched as it opened on Moira and Johnny's room, before quickly cutting to Stevie's desk at the Rosebud to Café Tropical.

How will Schitt's Creek end?

Although we haven't been given all the details about series six's plot, a recent teaser saw the entire Rose family outside the Rosebud Motel.

In the clip, the family is dressed to impress and appear in a celebratory mood as David and Patrick, who were engaged at the end of the fifth series, wear matching tuxes. So, could this mean we're getting a wedding this season?

Aside from possible ceremonies, we have been waiting with bated breath to learn more about Moira's feature film. In the very last moments of the season finale, Moira learned the horror sequel she worked on, The Crows Have Eyes III: The Crowening, was going to be shelved.

Although it was quite apparent that the low-budget flick was an absolute shocker, Moira put her all into the production and was left devastated by the news.

Then there's the outcome of Alexis and Ted's Galapagos adventure - has their relationship survived tent and tropical insects? Hopefully we'll find out.

Who will star in the final series of Schitt's Creek?

The entire Rose family will be returning for the final season - so get ready to welcome actors Annie Murphy, Catherine O'Hara, Dan and Eugene Levy back one last time to their roles.

Aside from the foursome, Noah Reid, who plays Patrick, Emily Hampshire (Stevie), Dustin Milligan (Ted) are all returning plus Chris Elliot, Jenn Robertson, and Sarah Levy, who play key supporting roles in the comedy.

Why is Schitt's Creek ending?

Show creators Eugene and Dan Levy, who are real-life father and son, announced in a joint statement in March that the sixth season would be it's final.

At the time, they wrote in an Instagram post: "... We also wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that we have decided season six will be our last.

"We are so grateful to have been given the time and creative freedom to tell this story in its totality, concluding with a final chapter that we had envisioned from the very beginning.

Adding: "It's not lost on us what a rare privilege it is in this industry to get to decide when your show should take its final bow

"We could never have dreamed that our fans would grow to love and care about these characters in the ways you have... ".

In November, Dan told GQ that the story had come to a natural end and it was the right time to move on: "I wasn't ready to go, but the story was set up to be finished.

"I wish there was more story to tell, because I would love to do this forever-but respecting the characters and respecting the quality of the storytelling, it just felt like, 'This is it.'"
