Created by and starring Thede, “A Black Lady Sketch Show” was renewed in June following a strong third season that netted two Emmys — one for outstanding picture editing for variety programming (a trophy the series has won in back-to-back years, with editors Stephanie Filo, Bradinn French, Taylor Joy Mason and S. Robyn Wilson honored for Season 3) and outstanding directing for a variety series (Bridget Stokes). The first three seasons of the sketch series have garnered 13 Emmy nominations and three wins.
Variety has exclusively learned that production is now underway in Los Angeles, with returning core cast members Thede, Gabrielle Dennis and Skye Townsend teasing a new sketch (directed by Stokes) set at “Brothaby’s” in this first-look image. Season 4 also boasts three new featured players — DaMya Gurley, Tamara Jade and Angel Laketa Moore — who join in the fun as the sketch series continues to feature “Black women living relatable and hilarious experiences in a magical reality that subverts traditional expectations.”
Ashley Nicole Black, who has been a member of the core cast since Season 1, will not return for the new episodes. In addition to her side-splitting work on “A Black Lady Sketch” show, with recurring characters like Trinity the invisible spy and Ruth, one of the disciplettes in “The Last Supp-her” and “The Res-herrection,” Black’s recent resume includes “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee,” “The Amber Ruffin Show” and “Ted Lasso,” for which she won an Emmy earlier this year, and she’s next set to star in “Bad Monkey” for Apple TV+.

“A Black Lady Sketch Show” originally launched on August 2, 2019. Now premiering Season 4, Thede reveals how many more she has planned. “7,000! I want this show to go on forever,” she exclaims. “I want to die knowing this show is still on the air. That may jinx it, but I don’t know, I just feel like it’s an institution. It was built as a platform that can go on and on forever.” The narrative series is comprised of four rib-tickling Black women creating magic in various sketches within 30-minute episodes, maneuvering their way through multiple characters all at once. Dennis says, “I play at least 30 characters, maybe, somewhere in there, I don’t keep track, Robin always tells me the number, but I forget.”
The series as 13 Emmy nominations and three wins to date, and Dennis confesses she’d like some individual bids for the cast. “I mean, I’m optimistic we’d win something!” she says. “What I think would be amazing is if actors can get some nominations in there. I think my cast does such an amazing job, myself included, as far as the level of work that goes into doing sketch comedy.”
