A Black Lady Sketch Show will be bringing the laughs next month, when the HBO series returns for Season 4 on Friday, April 14 at 11/10c.
The upcoming six-episode season will star returning cast members Robin Thede, Gabrielle Dennis and Skye Townsend, plus new featured players DaMya Gurley, Tamara Jade, Angel Laketa Moore and more than 20 celebrity guests, including Colman Domingo (Euphoria, Fear the Walking Dead), who appears in the above teaser video.
In October 2022, series creator/star Robin Thede announced the departure of actress-writer Ashley Nicole Black, telling our sister site Variety, “We are forever indebted to our sister, Emmy winner Ashley Nicole Black, whose contributions as a writer and performer on A Black Lady Sketch Show for three seasons have made an indelible mark on our series and in comedy history. She will always be a part of our family and we are rooting for her as she continues on her path of greatness.”

* Prime Video has ordered to series We Were Liars, based on E. Lockhart’s best-selling YA novel/amnesia thriller set on a privately owned island off the coast of Massachusetts. Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) and Carina Adly MacKenzie (Roswell, New Mexico) will serve as writing EPs.

But can they be together forever?”
Which of today’s TVLine Items pique your interest?
Very excited to watch the Korean drama, Yonder. The description sounds wonderful and it’s exactly the type of programming I love and seek out!
Will Yonder have subtitles?
All new programming has either subtitles or closed-captioning, as required by law.
Steve Wilkos is already on Season 16? Wow I remember when he was Jerry’s bodyguard and now his show is almost catching up to the 25 seasons the Jerry show had.
