This new role comes two years after Dan wrapped up the last season of “Schitt’s Creek,” which he co-created in 2013. He also starred in the show, playing David Rose for six seasons until the Emmy-winning show’s April 2020 finale.

The producer “cried for five straight hours” filming the last episode, he told GQ in a November 2019 interview.

“It was really, really hard,” Dan said, calling the last day one of the most “emotional” of his whole life.

“I had a splitting headache and didn’t know what to do with my life,” he added at the time. “I wept when I took David’s shoes off. I will never wear those shoes again — nor do I want to — but I was very sad to take them off.”
