In its sixth and final season, "Schitt's Creek" swept the comedy category on Sunday night, taking home seven wins at the 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards. He shared that prize with his father, Eugene, with whom he co-created the show.

This was the first time a family sitcom won the comedy series category since "Modern Family" in 2014.

"Schitt's Creek's" 15 total nominations this year include lead comedy actor for Eugene, lead comedy actress for O'Hara, supporting comedy actor for Daniel, supporting comedy actress for Murphy, two in comedy writing, comedy directing, comedy casting, non-prosthetic contemporary makeup, contemporary hairstyling, contemporary costumes, single-camera comedy picture editing and half-hour comedy/drama/animation sound mixing.

The wins - celebrated together by the show's cast and crew - capped an unlikely Emmy trajectory.


Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara took home awards for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy and Best Lead Actress in a Comedy, respectively.

The show's final season will stream on Netflix from October 7.

When Levy won his third Emmy, the supporting acting honor, he joked that "the internet's about to turn on me". "I'm certainly ready to get back to it". "I know there's plans in the works".

He said: "This is the best way we could have ever ended the show, so if there is an idea that ever pops into my head, worthy of these wonderful people, it has to be really freaking good at this point, because this is a really nice way of saying goodbye. Please do that. I'm so sorry for making this political, but I had to". But in true "Schitt's Creek" fashion, Dad spoke from the heart. "So thank you, Daniel".
