Inside Amy Schumer has been canceled on hiatus for six years. In 2016, the award-winning show was renewed for a fifth season but Schumer announced it was going on a break so she could focus on touring. She also got married and had a difficult birth in the intervening years. 

Inside Amy Schumer season 5 is a shortened season consisting of just five episodes. As usual, Schumer will share her real thoughts about "our effed up world" in sketches. This season’s sketches include “Colorado,” “Home Spanx,” “Gratitude,” “Fart Park,” “Second Amendment,” “The Last Noelle” and “Flatuda,” among others.

She is also welcoming a bunch of guests, including Amber Tamblyn, Bridget Everett, Cara Delevinge, Chris Parnell, Ellie Kemper, Jesse Williams, Laura Benanti, Michael Ian Black, Olivia Munn and Tim Meadows.
