INSIDE AMY SCHUMER Renewed for Season 4

     April 21, 2015


2015 is shaping up to be Amy Schumer‘s year. She recently did a stellar job hosting the otherwise insufferable MTV Movie Awards, sharply skewering most of the modern music industry and Hollywood with her particular brand of provocative satire and absurdism. Later this year, she’s toplining Trainwreck, Judd Apatow‘s hugely anticipated first female-led film which was also written by Schumer. The film focuses on Schumer’s commitment-phobic character, appropriately named Amy, getting romanced by a friendly sports doctor, played by Bill Hader. Apatow’s film helped wrangle Schumer an EW cover and will feature supporting and cameo roles from John Cena, Brie Larson, Marisa Tomei, Tim Meadows, Tilda Swinton, LeBron James, and Wu-Tang Clan‘s Method Man. Perhaps, then, it doesn’t come as such a surprise that Comedy Central announced today that the network will be renewing the Peabody Award-winning Inside Amy Schumer for a fourth season, likely to debut later this year or next year.

This news, of course, comes on the brink of the premiere of Inside Amy Schumer‘s third season, which will air tonight. And it will likely prove even harder to keep up with Schumer’s schedule in the coming years, following her spot on TIME Magazine’s most recent 100 Most Influential People list. Still, Schumer’s schedule will mostly be taken up with Inside Amy Schumer going into next year, following the release of Trainwreck. Meanwhile, Apatow is working on a new TV series, Love, with Paul Rusk, Gillian Jacobs, and Lesley Arfin, and will serve as producer on Netflix’s Pee-wee’s Big Holiday, Netflix’s straight-to-streaming film based on Paul Reubens‘s famed character, which was scripted by the star and Rusk.

Inside Amy Schumer Season 3 premieres tonight, April 21st, at 10:30 p.m. EST on Comedy Central.
