Comedy Central Renews ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ and ‘Review’; Adds Two New Shows
Comedy Central announced today that they’ve renewed three series, Inside Amy Schumer, Andy Daly’s Review, and TripTank, for another season. This will mark a third season for high-rated Schumer and a second for Review and TripTank.
The cable network also ordered two new shows, Another Period and Idiotsitter. Another Period is a turn-of-the-century comedy about a wealthy Rhode Island family co-created by and starring Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel and Oates). Idiotsitter is based on the Comedy Central digital series co-created by and starring Charlotte Newhouse and Workaholics‘ Jillian Bell.
