Word is out that Netflix has cancelled Astronomy Club: The Sketch Show after one season. The series' Twitter account confirmed the news with a message thanking fans and expressing hope that there will be more similar opportunities for black artists & comedians.

The series premiered in December featuring members of Astronomy Club, the first all-black troupe from the Upright Citizens Brigade. Sketches offer their unique perspectives that spotlight their smart and absurd brand of humor. Topics include a range of issues including race relations, the black experience, and attitudes towards African-Americans in the media.
