According to Amy Schumer, her Comedy Central show Inside Amy Schumer is not coming to an end after all.
On Thursday, the comedian took to Twitter to deny the rumor that the show had been cancelled after four seasons. Instead, the show is on hiatus for the "foreseeable future." She sent out a series of tweets addressing the issue.
Doing Standup and focusing on writing more for the next year at least. We are slated for a season 5 but not in the foreseeable future.— Amy Schumer (@amyschumer) August 18, 2016
Schumer mentions that she is merely taking a break from her show for at least a year to focus her talents elsewhere. Schumer also just released her book "The Girl With the Lower Back Tattoo." While she won't be doing the show for the "foreseeable future," Schumer stated that she "couldn't be happier" with her relationship with Comedy Central.
The comedian also took to Twitter to address a recent controversy regarding Kurt Metzger, one of her former writers on the show. Metzger has received heavy backlash for some incendiary comments about victims of sexual assault.
Schumer sent this tweet in response to the controversy...
I am so saddened and disappointed in Kurt Metzger. He is my friend and a great writer and I couldn't be more against his recent actions.— Amy Schumer (@amyschumer) August 17, 2016
Inside Amy Schumer was renewed for a fifth season in January after season four wrapped in June.
