‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ Will Be Renewed
Issa Rae is executive producing the third season of A Black Lady Sketch Show, the Emmy-nominated sketch comedy series from Robin Thede. The announcement of the renewal comes only days before the Season 2 finale on Friday. Amy Gravitt, EVP, HBO Comedy Programming, remarked, “Robin continues to tread new ground in the realm of sketch comedy.” Her second season was funny, and now we can’t wait to see what Robin, Izsa Rae, and the A Black Lady Sketch Show staff have planned for Season 3.
Sketch comedy television has never been the same since Thede’s A Black Lady Sketch Show debuted. Season 2 brought back the same core ensemble of Black female characters, this time interacting in a mystical world that defies expectations.
