Inside Amy Schumer was recently renewed by Comedy Central for a third season.
Although the comedian’s brand of humor is an acquired taste, apparently the program was popular enough for another go-around. According to Time, Comedy Central and Amy Schumer will team up for another batch of episodes in the near future.
The publication also points out that Schumer’s contribution to the network is the most popular show among Comedy Central’s latest offerings. Inside Amy Schumer apparently brings in a “50/50 male-female demographic,” a rarity for a cable channel that generally attracts guys who love quoting South Park for days on end.
It’s clear that people can’t wait for season 3 to roll around.

Unfortunately for Schumer fans, we don’t have a proper release date for the new season just yet. Unless the network rushes the episodes into production, the the next installment probably won’t arrive until 2015. That’s just speculation on our part; there’s always a chance Amy and the gang could crank out some material before the end of the year.
According to Variety, Inside Amy Schumer isn’t the only female-fronted comedy getting a little love at Comedy Central these days. Once the network finally realized there’s a market for this sort of entertainment, executives decided to give the proverbial greenlight to a handful of other like-minded shows.
Among the new additions is Another Period, a comedy Deadline describes as a faux Keeping Up with the Kardashians-style reality show set during the Victorian era.
Check out the show’s official synopsis:
“Set at the turn of the century, ‘Another Period’ follows the misadventures of the Bellacourts, Newport, RI’s first family, who have absolutely nothing to offer to the world, but who have so much money it doesn’t matter. The series focuses on sisters Lillian (Natasha Leggero) and Beatrice (Riki Lindhome), who care only about how they look, what parties they attend and becoming famous, which is a lot harder in 1902.”
While you’re waiting for the third season of Amy Schumer’s show to hit the airwaves, keep your eyes peeled for her upcoming collaboration with Judd Apatow. Trainwreck is presently slated to hit the big screen next year.
