Despite Comedy Central Renewing Amy Schumer’s Show in January, Schumer Tweets Wednesday Night That Her Show is Over

If Amy Schumer’s tweets are to be believed, the sketch comedy series “Inside Amy Schumer” won’t be back next year, reports USA Today.

The story continues, “On Wednesday night, Schumer responded to Twitter users outraged by a recent string of misogynistic posts by one of her Comedy Central show’s writers, Kurt Metzger, saying she was ‘saddened and disappointed’ by her former colleague, but ‘he does not work for me.’

“Schumer then added, ‘I didn’t fire Kurt. He isn’t a writer for my show because we aren’t making the show anymore. There are no writers for it.’”

That’s odd, since Comedy Central announced in January that “Inside Amy Schumer” had been renewed for another season.

USA Today and other media outlets tried to contact Comedy Central on Wednesday night for clarification, but had not heard a response.
