All four leads in the Canadian comedy series “Schitt’s Creek” have scored Emmy Award nominations for the show’s sixth and final season.

The Ontario-shot CBC show, which airs on Pop TV in the U.S., is also nominated for best comedy series.

Stars Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara received nominations for their leading roles as the parents of a formerly wealthy family.

Daniel Levy, who co-created the series with dad Eugene, is a contender in the categories of supporting actor, directing and writing in a comedy series.

And Annie Murphy is up for supporting actress in a comedy series.

Together, they play the Roses, who live in a motel in a small town after losing their fortune.

This is the second year in a row the show has been nominated at the Emmys.

Other Canadian Emmy nominees this year include Ottawa-raised Sandra Oh for lead actress in a drama series for “Killing Eve,” which airs on CTV Drama Channel and Crave in Canada, and BBC America.

She plays a determined MI5 operative caught up in a mind game with a female assassin, played by Jodie Comer, who is also nominated in the same category this year.

And “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” hosted by the titular Toronto-born comedian, is up for best variety talk series.
