Catherine O’Hara is more than ready to make a return trip to Schitt's Creek.

The 69-year-old actress tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue that she would “die” to do a revival of the Emmy-winning comedy alongside her costars Dan Levy, Eugene Levy and Annie Murphy.

“I would love to,” she shares. “We did a bit of a tour after we finished the show, and it was so much fun. I'd love to just be with them all again. Doing a movie would be wonderful. Yeah, I hope it happens."

O’Hara starred as the family matriarch Moira Rose during the show's six-season run, which ended in 2020. Alongside her husband and children, the Rose family is faced with starting over in the titular rural town as their lives were uprooted after being defrauded by their business manager.

During the show's six-season run, which ended in 2020, O’Hara won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her role as Moira.

The Argylle star also shares her gratitude to Dan and Eugene, who created the beloved Canadian sitcom, for “giving me that role, or giving me that opportunity to develop the role with them and to collaborate.”

“It's such a gift to work with people with whom you can collaborate. And they wrote such great scripts, and it was just so fun and so lovely,” she says. “And really, I hate to say COVID was good for anything, but we really lucked out with Netflix showing the show. Then so many families being holed up, parents and adult children being holed up under the same roof.”

“So many people were going through that. So it turned out that [it was] just the timing …” she adds. “You can't predict these things. It was the scripts, the idea of working with Eugene and Daniel, and then to have such a lovely experience with all of them.”

Dan, 40, shared a similar sentiment about his desire to reunite with his TV family in 2022, telling PEOPLE, "My hope is that one day we can all get together.”

“I see these people all the time. We're in constant contact with each other," he said at the time. "So the love is there. The desire to work together is there, and the desire to tell more stories is there."

"I think it just comes down to making sure that it's the right story to tell,” he added. “And I think we're also proud of the work we did on Schitt's. And when you end on such a high, it really forces you to think very carefully about what the next step is. Because whatever that is, is an extension of something that most people don't have, don't get to see in their life. And I really respect the audience in that thing."

Dan explained that, though a potential reunion was in the cards, he wanted to pull something together that will do right by the show's loyal fans.

"I think when you have an audience that's paid attention to you for 80 episodes of a television show, the last thing you want is to put something out that makes them think this feels like a cash grab," he explained. "And that's not what we're about. So TBD, but a TBD with an exclamation mark on the end."
