Breathe a sigh of relief: Inside Amy Schumer is not canceled. Amy Schumer sent Twitter and the media into a tailspin when she seemed to indicate her Comedy Central series no longer existed while reacting to the uproar about writer Kurt Metzger and his comments about sexual assault.
"I didn't fire Kurt. He isn't a writer for my show because we aren't making the show anymore. There are no writers for it," Schumer tweeted on Wednesday. Schumer also retweeted a fan who said they'd miss the series.
She set the record straight on Thursday in a series of tweets. "#InsideAmySchumer is not cancelled. @ComedyCentral has provided us with a wonderful home and we couldn't be happier there. I am just touring," she said in one. "Doing stand-up and focusing on writing more for the next year at least. We are slated for a season 5 but not in the foreseeable future," she said in another.
"I'm grateful @ComedyCentral is giving me this time to work on other projects. Now please grab my book #TheGirlWithTheLowerBackTattoo for now," Schumer concluded.
Request for comment from Comedy Central was not returned. The network previously announced it renewed Inside Amy Schumer for a fifth season. Season four wrapped up earlier in the summer of 2016. Schumer is on tour in Europe, the United Kingdom, North America and Australia and New Zealand until December.
Since season five isn't going to be ready in the "foreseeable future," why don't you relive some of Inside Amy Schumer's best sketches with us below.
Schumer is always keen to take on, well, everything. This time she turned her eye toward sitcoms and the double standards—plus recasting with Roseanne's Lecy Goranson.
"Closer to You"
Music videos have always been one of Inside Amy Schumer's standouts, so season four's "Closer to You," a song about a girl wanting to be close to her man when he's gone, is basically an instant classic.
"Last F—kable Day"
This sketch, featuring Schumer, Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Patricia Arquette, helped launch Schumer into the stratosphere. A biting take on Hollywood's age and gender problem, this is a must-watch sketch.
"Football Town Nights"
Friday Night Lights and rape culture collide with the help of The Good Wife's Josh Charles.
"12 Angry Men"
Inside Amy Schumer did a whole episode spoof of 12 Angry Men, debating Schumer's hotness. It's hard to get better than this.
"Girl You Don't Need Makeup"
Another music video about double standards done in the most perfect way.
