Clear your Friday night schedules, sketch comedy fans. Today, HBO tweeted the official trailer for A Black Lady Sketch Show’s season 3, and it looks nothing shy of hilarious. A Black Lady Sketch Show is an ensemble sketch comedy show which has been making us laugh with its original sketches since its premiere in 2019. The HBO Max original currently stars Robin Thede, Gabrielle Dennis, Ashley Nicole Black, and Skye Townsend (Laci Mosely was a part of the cast in seasons 1 and 2 but doesn’t appear to be featured in the trailer.) Today’s two-minute trailer features a star-studded lineup of guest appearances and the return of characters from popular sketches like Courtroom Kiki and The Last Supp-her. Not only can we see the return of recurring skits like Invisible Spy and Dr. Hadassah Olayinka Ali-Youngman, but we’re also shown brand new side splitters like The Funeral Ball and an appearance from the puppets that starred in Season 1’s intro.
What’s In Store For A Black Lady Sketch Show Season 3
In a recent interview, the show’s creator, writer, and star Robin Thede stated that season 3 will be bigger than ever and aims to “blow people’s minds.” Thede tells Entertainment Weekly that season 3 will be more cinematic with bigger sets, stunts, and over-the-top characters and will finally answer some burning questions about the recurring post-apocalyptic plot.
One of the themes that keep fans coming back to A Black Lady Sketch Show is its surprise celebrity appearances. Robin Thede has confirmed that season 3 will feature more guest stars than any other season (the series creator says the number is close to 40). We’ve already seen the main ensemble cast (which at one point also featured Quinta Brunson) share the screen with Issa Rae, Angela Bassett, Gabrielle Union, Yvette Nicole Brown, Kim Wayans, Tyler James Williams, and Danny Glover (to name a few). However, today’s trailer revealed we can expect to see Hollywood legends like Tommy Davidson, Holly Robinson Peete, MJ Rodriguez, Kel Mitchell, Michael Ealy, and Ava DuVernay in the upcoming season.
Today’s season 3 trailer was just the tip of the iceberg of what’s in store. A Black Lady Sketch Show season 3 premieres on HBO Max on April 8th. What’s your favorite sketch from the series? Let us know in the comments!
