    I hope it’s not true, but if Amy is ready to move on, it’s better to not have a fifth season than to have a fifth season without her heart in it. It’s not as though she’ll never work again. I look forward to whatever she does next (hopefully another film as good as Trainwrecked is)!

      To be honest, as much as this season had some funny moments, it was clear that this show isn’t as important to her as it used to be. Last season she was truly firing at all cylinders and this season it felt like she was making the show for the sake of making it.

    I’m not surprised. The potato faced woman who is vulgar, shameless and self-important as a schtick can only go so far.

    Did she run out of jokes to steal?

  4. Dave says:

    Good. She’s awful, as is her show.

  5. Walkie says:

    Very weird.
    Lots more to this story.

    This most recent season was not very good. It would be difficult to pick my favorite sketches from any of the first three seasons because there were so many hilarious ones from which to choose. It would be difficult to choose my favorites from this current season because there were so few that were funny.

  7. Tom says:

    Has anyone considered the reason why “they’re not making it anymore” is because they’ve ACTUALLY done ‘making it’ and just waiting for the episodes to air?

    • Adam says:

      That’s unlikely. This last season ended too recently for them to have been able to produce an entire new season in the time that has passed. And the next season wouldn’t air until 2017 and they would probably like to keep themselves more timely than that. Also, I believe she’s currently filming a different project since the show ended.

  8. S. says:

    I got it. Louis CK decides not to make “Louie” for awhile or we don’t know if Larry’s gonna do more “Curb Your Enthusiasm” (well until just recently) and it’s a break. Amy doesn’t have plans for when she’s gonna do another season, if at all, and it’s a “cancellation”? Comedy Central hasn’t cancelled her show. There’s no reason to conclude that anyone other than Amy is the one making decisions in this. How about we talk about this the same way we would if a male comedian was being all artistic and in charge of their future?

  9. Christopher Hogan says:

    I think the reason for her deciding not to do another season is because of her relationship going into the next phase, and that’s more important…love trumps anything else.
