HBO has renewed their hit Emmy-nominated sketch comedy series, “A Black Lady Sketch Show,” for a third season.
The awesome news comes ahead of the season 2 finale, which airs on Friday, May 28.
Robin Thede, Creator, Showrunner, Executive Producer, writer and star of the show, gushed:
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.
Without a doubt, my most favorite skit of this season is the “Gang Retreat.”
Congratulations to Robin and all of the queens who share their gifts and talents on the show!
I’m looking forward to season 3!
