TBS announced today that Full Frontal with Samantha Bee has been renewed for two additional seasons. This means that the weekly news comedy program will be on the air to cover not only this year's midterm elections, but the 2020 election season as well.

The two-year pickup is really a no-brainer for the network considering the country's continued heightened interest in the political landscape. Considering the show's launch in 2016 came at a perfect time to see it reach the level of success it has, it only makes sense to keep it on the air through to what will surely be an intensely-followed run up to the next presidential election.

Longtime Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee hosts the show, using her unique comedic voice to give a nuanced view of current political and cultural issues. Over its first two seasons Full Frontal has become the fastest-growing late-night show on TV, with each episode averaging 4 million total viewers across the network's linear, video-on-demand, and digital platforms.
