Maria Bamford’s Lady Dynamite now joins Jim Jefferies’ Legit and Cristela Alonzo’s Cristela as sitcoms by stand-up comedians starring those comedians that ended way too early, and will have fans asking the comedian when to expect another new season for years on end, to no avail.
Netflix confirmed over the weekend that it would not be granting Lady Dynamite a third season.
“A GREAT RUN!” Bamford Tweeted out Saturday.
Please watch for more wonderful things to come from Pam Brady, the head writer and force behind @TheLadyDynamite! She is a BEAST. And writers who are women @BriLeRose, @jenstatsky, @halliecantor, Theresa Mulligan!

Lady Dynamite starred Bamford as herself in a surreal parallel meta-universe, where the comedian, upon leaving rehab to take care of her mental health issues, finds a new lease on life and her career thanks to her agent, best friends, and a new love.
It co-starred Fred Melamed, Ana Gasteyer, Mo Collins, Lennon Parham and Bridget Everett.
SF Sketchfest will host a tribute to Bamford and Lady Dynamite this coming Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018.
