'You are just so remarkable. Your show brings joy and laughter at a time when they are so sorely needed. Thank you all and my huge love to sweet you,' wrote comedy veteran, Mary Steenburgen.

Though some may think of 'Schitt's Creek' as the average melodrama, the fish-out-of-water cult comedy has been recognized for its progressive themes surrounding the important issues faced by the LGBT community, allies, and families. Levy's character, David Rose, was gay and undeniably accepted by his family.

This theme is secured in Levy's success in normalizing his character's life with love and marriage, rather than making tragedy the epitome of the gay experience. In his acceptance of the GLAAD award honoring his advocacy, he highlighted the reality of the LGBT experience but also noted how he wished the show would turn the page.

“It’s fiction, yes,” he told the GLAAD audience. “But I’ve always been told to lead by example and this felt like a good place to start.”

Without a doubt, Dan Levy created many memorable moments with his cast which included Catherine O'Hara, Annie Murphy, Chris Elliot, and real-life family members Eugene Levy and Sarah Levy. Though the show had not been canceled, to Dan Levy, the success of the show prompted its early end.

In an interview with ABCNews, Levy said, 'It was important for me that this show remains something that people cherish and that people go back to and revisit year after year or put on when they're feeling blue...and in order to do that, you really need to be aware of when is the right time to say goodbye.'
