The laughs wont be slowing down at HBO. A Black Lady Sketch Show has just been renewed for season 3. The Emmy-Nominated show created by Robin Thede, received the renewal ahead of the Season 2 finale this Friday.
The renewal is no surprise! With a central cast of black women, the series continues to deliver hilariously relatable experiences and viewers are locked in.
“Making A Black Lady Sketch Show is a dream come true and I’m honored to continue our incredible series and wonderful partnership with HBO, Issa Rae, JAX Media and our entire producing team. I can’t wait to push the show even further in Season 3 and to keep delivering the laugh out loud content our audience loves to see! I see this show as a budding comedy institution, where Black women can play fully realized, non-stereotypical characters and I am so grateful for the opportunity to continue to create that space for today’s premiere comedians.” Thede said in a statement released by the network.
“Robin continues to break new ground in the world of sketch comedy. She delivered a hilariously sharp second season, and we’re looking forward to seeing where Robin, Issa Rae and the A Black Lady Sketch Show team take us in Season 3” added Amy Gravitt, EVP, HBO Comedy Programming.
