Created by comedy veteran Eugene Levy (American Pie) and his son Dan, the show follows the Rose family, who are newly broke millionaires struggling with small-town life.
Having initially flown under the radar outside of Canada, the show has gone on to build a steady following over the course of its six seasons, in some part thanks to its appearance on Netflix.

Storylines to watch out for this time out include matriarch Moira’s (played by Catherine O’Hara – Kevin’s mum in Home Alone) realisation that her status as a Hollywood actress is fading following her appearance in a film about crows, brattish daughter Alexis’ (Annie Murphy) seemingly ill-advised road-trip with veterinarian boyfriend Ted, and the show’s grand finale of the wedding between David (Dan Levy) and Patrick (Noah Reid).
