Amy Schumer Tired of not being cancelled, or at least she’s telling everyone to promote the fact that her Peabody-award-winning show Inside Amy Schumer Streaming service Paramount Plus is coming back.
Schumer announced on Twitter that the show, which ran on the now-defunct network Comedy Central from 2013 to 2016, would make a triumphant return to television so that Schumer could “burn any remaining bridges.”
She also said that the show was “better than ever. Well, not as good as season 3. But close.” And it will air on “the hottest piece of *ss,” which comedians call Paramount Plus.
“So, sit down and unbutton your pants (so you’re comfortable, not in a sexual way) because we’re not taking anything back. You don’t want to miss the show that will eventually make me cancel forever.”
She ended the message by saying that the Queen wanted you to watch the show and call herself the “Duchess of Long Island.”
The promo for the new season shows Schumer in the ball pit, which is a pretty simple metaphor but still on-brand. In addition to the coveted Peabody, the show was also nominated for eight Emmys. It won two.
Although the show is not expected to return, it is certainly unexpected. Back in 2016, Doug Herzog, president of Viacom Music and Entertainment Group, said that the show probably wouldn’t go beyond a fifth season.
“I think Amy’s immediately viable film career is something she’s going to be very focused on going forward,” he said. “He has a lot on his plate right now.”
Schumer has other TV projects life and betho, a semi-autobiographical drama on Hulu starring Michael Cera as her husband. That show will also return for a second season, reveals Schumer Howard Stern Show,
