The Emmy-winning Full Frontal with Samantha Bee will return for two more seasons, TBS announced today.
“We were fortunate to start our show in an election year, and I’m so grateful TBS has picked us up for two more seasons which will see us through the 2018 midterms and bring us into the 2020 election season,” Bee said. “It’s promising to be a real $h!tshow and I am counting on our viewers to coax me out of my panic bunker and get us through it.”
“No one does political comedy like Full Frontal; a two-season pickup is an obvious decision,” said Thom Hinkle, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “Sam and her team have been relentlessly incisive in their satire, and the awards recognition and their growing viewership reflect that. Along with new episodes, expect more specials and a lot more blazers.”
The show won an Outstanding Writing Emmy for its Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner special. In addition, the series has earned seven other Emmy noms, a Television Critics Association Award for Outstanding Achievement in News and Information, two additional TCA Award nominations, a WGA nomination, two PGA nominations and four DGA nominations.
Full Frontal averages four million total viewers per episode, when measuring TV, VOD, streaming and online platforms.
