Comedy Central Renews ‘Inside Amy Schumer,’ ‘Broad City,’ Orders ‘Time Traveling Bong’

Comedy Central has renewed its scripted stalwarts “Inside Amy Schumer” and “Broad City” and ordered the limited series “Time Traveling Bong.”

Amy Schumer” is renewed for season 5 while “Broad City” is getting the vote of confidence of a two-season renewal.  Both shows were picked up prior to the premieres of their most recent seasons — no surprise given the heat behind them.

“Bong” hails from “Broad City” co-star and co-creator Ilana Glazer and “Broad City” scribes Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello. It’s a three-episode romp involving two cousins, played by Glazer and Downs, who travel through time stoned after discovering a time-traveling bong. Aniello is directing.

“Individually and collectively, these shows speak for themselves,” said Kent Alterman, president of original programming for Comedy Central.

“Bong” will air over three consecutive nights, starting April 20 following the third-season finale of “Broad City.” “Broad City” returns with 10 episodes for season three on Feb. 17. “Inside Amy Schumer” will air its fourth season starting in April.

Schumer’s star has skyrocketed since she launched the sketch comedy series in 2013. It’s notable that she has committed to a fifth season so far out.

“We are so excited to get picked up,” said Schumer. “I’ve gotten picked up many times, but this time feels the best.”
