‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ Ends

A Black Lady Sketch Show is going bye bye!

The Emmy-winning comedy series’ creator, writer and star, Robin Thede, shared with Variety that the fourth season will be the final one.

Robin Thede said,

“Thank you to all the immensely talented cast members, guest stars, writers, directors, editors and crew members who have made ‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ an Emmy-winning success.”

She added,

“I especially want to recognize the Black women and other women of color who excelled in every department at ‘ABLSS.’ I am also eternally grateful for the support of Issa Rae and Jax Media, Amy Gravitt, Casey Bloys and the entire team at HBO, Max and Warner Bros. Discovery.”

A Black Lady Sketch Show framed the world from the perspective of a Black woman with sketches that flouted convention and parodied relatable topics, such as hair problems, ashy skin, and the politics of the Black church.

Robin Thede appeared in the fourth season, which aired in April, along with Skye Townsend and Gabrielle Dennis in the main roles, as well as guest stars DaMya Gurley, Tamara Jade, and Angel Laketa Moore. Quinta Brunson, the Emmy-winning creator and star of Abbot Elementary, Ashley Nicole Black, the Emmy-winning actress of Ted Lasso, and Laci Mosley, the star of the iCarly revival, are all longtime cast members.

Issa Rae executive produced the series for Hoorae, along with EPs Dave Becky and Jonathan Berry for 3 Arts Entertainment and Tony Hernandez and Brooke Posch for JAX Media.

The critically acclaimed series received 13 Emmy nominations for its first three seasons, including three record victories for editing and directing.

HBO submitted the series for consideration in 30 categories for this year’s Emmy Awards, including the newly created outstanding scripted variety series category, and aimed to get its three main actors their long-overdue nominations.

The network saluted the show’s historic accomplishments and hailed Thede as a “visionary comedic talent” in a statement.

“For four exceptional seasons of ‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ we’ve been thrilled to partner with her on this groundbreaking, hilarious series. Robin, alongside Hoorae, Jax Media, and the incredible cast and crew, leave an indelible legacy not only in sketch, but in television comedy, and we look forward to continued creative collaboration under her deal with us.”
