On September 23, TBS announced that it greenlit a seventh season of EMMY award winning late night series "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee".
The show plans to move to Thursday nights beginning January 2022. The series continues to reach 2.9 million viewers per episode and has 502 million YouTube views. Production of season seven will begin early next year. The show was also recognized by the Writers Guild in February.
"Shining a spotlight on important issues and people, Sam provides needed commentary and asks questions of authority and ourselves that need to be asked," said Brett Weitz, General Manager TNT, TBS and truTV. "But most of all, Sam is just funny and makes me laugh out loud each week. I’m thrilled she will continue to call TBS home."
In addition to series renewal of Full Frontal, TBS has renewed its first-look deal with Bee's production company, Swimsuit Competition, for the development of its own brand of entertaining content. Swimsuit Competition continues to focus on discovering new talent and giving support and exposure to their ideas.
