The critically acclaimed comedy — about a shallow, filthy rich family who lose their fortune and are forced to live in a small town they bought as a joke — debuted in Canada in 2015, and soon after on Pop TV in the United States.
The show ended its original run in 2020 after co-creator Dan Levy decided it was time for it to come to an end. His TV father was played by his real-life father, Eugene, who was also a co-creator. His sister was played by Annie Murphy and the mother was played by Catherine O'Hara.
The show’s popularity exploded when it became widely available on Netflix in 2017, and it received its first Emmy nominations in 2019, including one for best comedy series.
Now it’s firmly fixed in TV culture.
The show has earned multiple Emmys including Outstanding Lead Actor, Outstanding Lead Actress, Outstanding Supporting Actor and Outstanding Supporting Actress in one year. It was the first for any comedy or drama series to sweep all four major categories.
"I think when the show started out, it was kind of this quirky little Canadian thing," said Murphy, who plays Alexis, the Roses’ Paris Hilton-esque daughter. "And then as it gained momentum and we got added to Netflix it reached a much, much wider audience and the responses went from like, ‘Oh it’s the dad from ‘American Pie’ and the mom from ‘Home Alone’ and the creepy, creepy guy from ‘Scary Movie,’ to ‘Oh, my God, this show just got my mom through her chemotherapy treatments,’ or ‘This show allowed me to summon up the courage to come out to my family.’"
