On Saturday, Oct. 3, Schitt’s Creek star and co-creator Dan Levy took to Twitter to announce big news: The final season of Schitt’s Creek dropped on Netflix days early.
“Have a great weekend!” Dan wrote, sharing that in addition to the show’s season six being available to stream on the platform, so was the behind-the-scenes Schitt’s Creek documentary Best Wishes, Warmest Regards. Originally, both the doc and the final season were set to drop on Oct. 7.
The sitcom, which also starred Eugene Levy, Annie Murphy, and Catherine O’Hara, followed a wealthy family who moved to the titular Schitt’s Creek after losing their fortune. It ran for six seasons on Pop TV before bowing out on April 7, 2020.
Schitt’s Creek took home nine Emmys at the 2020 ceremony in September, with all four main cast members scoring gold. It also won the coveted award of Outstanding Comedy Series, the only year it was nominated.
“The Talk” panelist Sharon Osbourne recently opened up about her sex life with her husband of 38 years, rocker Ozzy Osbourne, revealing that she and the “prince of darkness” still make time for intimacy with one another.
While the ladies discussed the sex drives of older women, the 67-year-old talk show host revealed she and her rockstar hubby are still pretty frisky, though nowhere near as randy as they were in their youth.
“We all know Ozzy was way oversexed. That’s no secret. He had enough for all,” she joked on the CBS show. “It’s getting less. It used to be three times a day, but it’s much less now. Let’s say a couple of times a week, which is normal in a long, long relationship.”
She went on to add, “Speaking for the older ladies here: When you’re in a relationship, your relationship has highs and lows. And depending on where you are with your relationship, you love each other more. Sex changes that it’s not just about the sex, it’s about the intimacy. It’s about being with that person that you love. They love you. It just changes.”
“Those goosebumps that you got changes to something else,” she continued. “It’s a warmth. It’s a respect. It is a feeling of love and comfort, so those butterflies change to that comfort. The thing is, if somebody moves you in a certain way, you love them. You make love. It’s the best thing in the world.
Sharon and Ozzy married in 1982 and share daughters Aimee, 37, and Kelly, 35, and Jack, 34. Ozzy also has three children from his first marriage to Thelma Riley.
Doherty and Garth, for example, have been open about their rocky relationship during the first four seasons of the series.
“We were locked in this sound stage for 14-16 hours every day,” the What I Like About You star wrote in her 2014 Book, Deep Thoughts From a Hollywood Blonde. “There were times when we loved each other and there were times when we wanted to claw each other’s eyes out … It was more of just young girls finding their way and finding their individual voices. … Poor Tori, the youngest of the three of us was, inevitably, often caught in the middle and she was always trying to smooth things over.”
“I can only remember one incident and that was when, yeah, we took it outside,” she said. “I’m a midwestern girl. I spent some time in Glendale, Arizona, and that makes you tough.”
Spelling provided more context of the altercation. “You guys were teasing each other and she, like, pulled your skirt up,” she told Andy Cohen. “I stayed in my dressing room when it was happening, shaking.”
“She took it and took it like a champ. Once they gave her that label, it lived with her, her whole career, and that’s unfortunate,” Spelling said while promoting the show’s short-lived quasi-revival, BH90210, which aired in 2019. “I know what it’s like to get a label of something and that’s the one story that stays with you forever, and it just wasn’t true.”
While Spelling, Garth, Green and Ziering were the only original cast members to stay on for the show’s entire 10-season run, several famous faces were featured on the series over the years — and they’ve also been candid about their experience.
According to multiple reports, Matt Olmstead has stepped down as writer-showrunner of the series, which would see Stabler—a character Meloni originated on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit opposite Meloni’s real-life palMariska Hargitayas Olivia Benson—overseeing New York City’s organized crime division. Producers of the series reportedly wanted to take some extra care with the new spinoff, given the recent protests over police brutality. It had yet to begin production.
Though Olmstead’s exit delays the show, reports claim it is still on schedule for the 2020-2021 season.
Meloni left SVU after the season 12 finale in 2011, with the characters learning in the season 13 premiere that Stabler decided to retire following a shooting in the police station. He has not returned to the series since.
Archie Panjabi plays an investigator searching for a missing plane in the new Peacock series “Departure.”
“I read the scripts and I couldn’t put them down — and I felt that the audience would feel the same,” Panjabi, 48, tells The Post.
The primarily England-based thriller, already renewed for a second season, follows Kendra Malley (Panjabi), an investigator at the Transportation Safety and Investigations Bureau who’s tasked with finding the vanished plane, which was en route to London from New York. Its disappearance is being labeled by the media as potentially the “worst aviation disaster in UK history.”
“You’re so keen to find out what caused the passenger plane to go missing,” Panjabi says. “People generally have this fear and fascination with flying. So I just thought it would be one of those binge-worthy shows.”
Unlike “Lost” or NBC’s more recent hit “Manifest,” there’s no supernatural element to “Departure,” but there’s still endless possibilities for what happened to the plane. Kendra and her team must find out if there was an equipment failure or a more nefarious cause including a hijacking. They must also determine if the plane is in the Atlantic Ocean, or if it’s still in the air evading detection.
To complicate matters, Kendra is still reeling from losing her husband to a tragic accident that’s revealed over the course of the series. She’s just returned to her job after his death when the plane goes missing.
“I really liked the character,” she says. “It was a fascinating idea to have this really strong crash investigator deal with all the victims and what they go through, having only recently gone through her own personal tragedy.”
Kendra’s boss and mentor, Howard Lawson, is played by Christopher Plummer.
“I grew up with ‘The Sound of Music’ and followed his career,” Panjabi says. “He was attached to the project when it was sent to me, so that was an additional attraction to want to do this show, because I’ve always wanted to work with him. So it was wonderful. He’s a pure delight. He’s brilliant at what he does, and he’s great fun on set as well.”
“I always like to challenge myself,” she says. “I recently did something very different for ‘Run’ [on HBO] which was a character that was a bit of a psycho. I’d never done something like that before
“So as long as a character is appealing, I’m not fussy about the genre, as long as I like the script and there are great people attached to it.”
Season 2 of “Departure” is currently filming in Canada and will likely premiere next year.
“The second season is different — you see a growth in Kendra compared to Season 1,” Panjabi says. “It’s dealing with a different type of accident and its more character-driven. I reunite with Jason O’Mara, who I worked with on ‘The Good Wife,’ and I have some really good stuff with him.
“I can’t say too much, but it’s exciting — and there are lots of surprises.”
On September 17, the OG cast member shared her departure news via YouTube ahead of the show’s 13th season. “I have made the hard and very difficult decision to not be a part of Real Housewives of Atlanta season 13,” she said at the time. “It wasn’t an easy decision for me.
Leakes continued, “I have been on an extremely, extremely long, exhausting, tiring, emotional negotiation. There has been a lot of emotion flying on both sides. I’m just so happy that I can say that I was a part of a genre that opened doors for Black ensemble reality shows.”
Bravo said in a statement to Us Weekly that they “wish NeNe all the best in her future endeavors and thank her for sharing her journey” with fans. “She’s been instrumental since the start and will truly be missed, and maybe one day she’ll hold the peach again,” the network added.
“I totally get the comparisons between Sex and the City and the show because it’s a Darren Star and Patricia Field collaboration and so that totally makes sense,” Collins says. “Carrie loved fashion, Emily loves fashion. But down to the actual fine-tuning of both of the storylines, they are very, very different.”
In fact, as a producer on the show, Collins certainly had a say in that fine-tuning. Collins adds, “Working and collaborating with Patricia Field was incredible. And the aesthetic of the show is so much based on Paris, but also the fashion. And so to be asked for my opinion to incorporate my own ideas and style into that was really special.”
Those tiny tweaks are what helped Collins make Emily even more unique.
“I think that Emily, like myself, grew up watching Sex and the City. I think she really loved Carrie Bradshaw as well as the other characters and probably had like pictures saved of what Carrie wore at certain times, when she was traveling, or different attitudes or attributes that Carrie had,” she says. “I think they both love what they do. They both love to work and very much incorporate those life experiences into their work.”
