Hulu announced today that Shrill has been picked up for a third season. The good news comes two months after the comedy's sophomore run, which continued to garner its share of critical praise.

Based on Lindy West's book, Shrill: Notes from a Loud Woman, the half-hour series stars Saturday Night Live alum Aidy Bryant, who executive produces and writes as well. Bryant plays Annie, a full-figured woman looking to change things up in her life - just not her body. She's more interested in earning the respect of her perfectionist boss, finding the right boyfriend, and getting along with her judgemental mother and sick father.

The streaming service has ordered another eight episodes for Season 3 of Shrill, matching the length of Season 2. Look for a return in 2021.
