Max announced today that Rap Sh!t will not be returning for a third season. The news comes less than a month after the comedy wrapped its 8-episode sophomore run.

"We are extremely grateful to Issa Rae for creating Rap Sh!t, a one-of-a-kind comedy with compelling social commentary that reached viewers in a way only Issa's talents can accomplish," a spokesperson for the streamer said in a statement. "A huge thank-you to Issa, showrunner Syreeta Singleton and the teams at Hoorae and 3 Arts Entertainment for introducing us to Shawna and Mia, a duo whose journey fans have been invested in and who they have continued to root for through everything. We'll never get Seduce and Scheme out of our heads, and we wouldn't have it any other way."

The half-hour series follows Shawna and Mia, two estranged high school friends from Miami who reunite to form a rap group. Both seasons garnered high critical praise, each sitting at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
