"Making A Black Lady Sketch Show is a dream come true and I'm honored to continue our incredible series and wonderful partnership with HBO, Issa Rae, Jax Media and our entire producing team," added Thede. "I can't wait to push the show even further in Season 3 and to keep delivering the laugh out loud content our audience loves to see! I see this show as a budding comedy institution, where Black women can play fully realized, non-stereotypical characters and I am so grateful for the opportunity to continue to create that space for today's premiere comedians."
