The smash Canadian comedy series Schitt’s Creek has won its first Emmy Award.

Actor Eugene Levy, one of the stars and co-creator’s of the show, congratulated John Comerford and Lisa Parasyn on Twitter for winning the Emmy for outstanding casting for a comedy series.

The Television Academy announced the award Thursday night to honour outstanding artistic and technical achievement in television.

Schitt’s Creek began on CBC, Pop TV and later Netflix before becoming a global phenomenon, with countless kudos for the story of the formerly wealthy Rose family adjusting to a humble life in a small town the dad once bought as a joke.

Levy’s son Daniel, another star and a co-creator of the show, also gushed about the Emmy win, writing “I AM SCREAMINGGG,” as he congratulated Comerford and Parasyn in a tweet.

I AM SCREAMINGGG. Congrats Jon and Lisa on Schitt’s Creek’s very first Emmy!!! 🥺❤️💫 <a href=”https://t.co/FCLbZKj9X7″>https://t.co/FCLbZKj9X7</a>
