No Season 5 for the sketch comedy series.
July 6, 2023
Word is out that A Black Lady Sketch Show has come to an end on HBO and will not be returning for a fifth season. The news comes less than two months after the acclaimed comedy wrapped its now-final six episode run. The show's social media pages posted a video compilation of scenes that was followed by a note thanking the fans.
"Thank you to all the immensely talented cast members, guest stars, writers, directors, editors and crew members who have made A Black Lady Sketch Show an Emmy-winning success," said creator, showrunner, writer, and star Robin Thede in a statement. "I especially want to recognize the Black women and other women of color who excelled in every department at ABLSS. I am also eternally grateful for the support of Issa Rae and Jax Media, Amy Gravitt, Casey Bloys and the entire team at HBO, Max and Warner Bros. Discovery."
Written by, directed by, and starring a core cast of African-American women, the comedy series features sketches that touch on current and culturally-relevant themes like social norms, religion, sex, and relationships.

This was nothing but a far left wing COMPLETELY not funny show. Using the agenda towards the black community, also the leftists. Should have been canceled after EP1.

I saw one skit. They were playing catch with newborn babies throwing them across the room as some sort of deranged competition. Not funny at all and just disturbing. I shut it off and never gave it another look. Can't say all the skits were like that because I don't know but that one was just unfunny and disgusting.

Hilarious! Great show…it worked well for 4 seasons…it’s time to refresh, rebrand, and come out with something else!

Sad. It had a good run. It had a lot of great actresses on it. I think it will be remembered as a funny, ground breaking sketch show.

It was weird to me at first then I watched some more and ended up liking it. For this type of show 4 seasons is not bad,

That’s too bad. I found this show to be really funny. It’s how I first discovered Quinta Brunson. Lots of great comedic chops on this show. I hope the actresses find work in other shows or movies.
