Late night US show Full Frontal With Samantha Bee has been axed by TBS after seven seasons.
“As we continue to shape our new programming strategy, we’ve made some difficult, business-based decisions. Full Frontal With Samantha Bee will not return to TBS,” a network spokesperson said in a statement. “We are proud to have been the home to Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and thank Sam, and the rest of the Emmy-nominated team for their groundbreaking work. We celebrate this extraordinarily talented cast and crew and look forward to exploring new opportunities to work with them in the future.”
“Samantha Bee is honored to have hosted the Emmy Award-winning series Full Frontal With Samantha Bee on TBS for seven seasons, but the show will not return to the network this fall,” a statement from Bee’s repesentative reads. “Bee made television history in the late night space, paving the way for female voices in what has traditionally been, and continues to be a male dominated landscape.
“Full Frontal with Samantha Bee consistently broke barriers with Sam and her team boldly using political satire to entertain, inform and empower viewers, while embracing critically underrepresented stories, particularly about women.”
Full Frontal With Samantha Bee previously screened in Australia on SBS VICELAND ending in 2020.
