Nobody wants a Schitt’s Creek movie more than Annie Murphy it seems, because she is literally bribing our lord and saviour Dan Levy to make it happen. Love to see it.
Levy didn’t just star in the hit series, he also created and wrote it and served as showrunner, so the ball is very much in his court.
I wish someone would send me $5 a day, as a treat for getting out of bed.
“I’ve been sending Dan $5 a day in the mail as a bribe,” Murphy said.
“So far, I have not heard back about a movie officially. But, oh my God, I would be just over the moon if that ever came to pass because I miss everyone so much every day.”
She added, “Just to see Moira [Catherine O’Hara] again, I would pay a lot of money to do that.”
I mean, excluding no mail on Sunday, Murphy could be shelling out $30 a week here. That’s my Myki money!
She means business.
Murphy, who played Alexis Rose in the beloved series, already has some ideas for the Schitt’s Creek movie, by the way.
Maybe David (Levy) and Patrick (Noah Reid) could adopt a wee baby in it, although that’s probably off the cards for Alexis.
“I think she is perhaps not quite in that yet, but, I don’t know,” Murphy mused.
“I just want to see everyone on screen again and I will be a happy camper.”
The actor also shared a really sweet anecdote about how her parents are rewatching the show because they miss seeing her on screen and her mum keeps reminding her about lines she completely forgot about.
Isn’t that just the sweetest?
As for a Schitt’s Creek film – well, Dan Levy has teased it a couple of times.
Way back when the cast swept the Emmys last September, Levy said he was super happy with how things ended on the show, but said he hasn’t ruled out the possibility of a film.
“If there is an idea that pops into my head it has to be really fucking good because this is a nice way to say goodbye,” he told Variety.
“Fingers crossed we get a nice idea popping into our head soon… I would love to work with these people again.”
Honestly, if Downton Abbey can churn out two films after its six-season run, then so can Schitt’s Creek.
The award-winning series, seasons 1 to 6, is streaming now on Netflix, plus a 44-minute goodbye special that will absolutely make you weep.
