TBS has announced that Full Frontal with Samantha Bee has been picked up for a fifth season. The news is no surprise, as the Emmy Award-winning weekly news comedy program has been continuing its strong performance since receiving a two-year renewal back in 2018.

Considering the country's continued heightened interest in the political landscape, the show's popularity makes sense. Currently TV's top ad-supported late-night series among young adults, each episode of the show is seen by roughly 4 million viewers across linear, VOD, and digital platforms, with a total of over 300 million views on its YouTube channel alone.

Longtime Daily Show correspondent Samantha Bee hosts the show, using her unique comedic voice to give a nuanced view of the country's current political and cultural issues. Additionally, international stories are covered with segments from countries such as Russia, Germany, and Iraq.
