The girls are crushing it so hard, they don’t even need to wait until new ratings are in. They’re re-upping that shit now, son. Variety reports that Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s Comedy Central show Broad City has already been renewed for season three, with the announcement coming before tonight’s season two premiere has even aired.
In a process that’s much easier than trying to transport an air conditioner across New York City without a car, Comedy Central has granted the show about two twenty-something best friends yet another season to hang out, smoke weed, and generally brighten each others’ lives. Along with Inside Amy Schumer, the returning series (which also co-stars John Gemberling, Hannibal Buress, and Stephen Schneider) is being held up as part of the network’s commitment to representing female talent on screen. Comedy Central is also touting the fact that Broad City was both the No. 1 cable show in its time slot and the No. 1 new cable comedy, among the all-important demographic of males aged 18-34. (Apparently a commitment to airing female-centric shows is not contingent on whether actual females are watching.)
