Head writer and executive producer Jenny Hagel also said in the statement that they, “can’t wait for fans of “The Amber Ruffin Show” to see what we have in store for them this fall. We’ve got more silly sketches, more smart commentary, more surprise celebrity guests, and more jokes that will make you laugh until tequila comes out of your nose.”

Ruffin continues to carve out her place in late night history, a journey that started with her barrier-breaking work on the “Late Night with Seth Myers.” Hired in 2014, Ruffin became the first Black woman to ever write for a late night talk show. Now with her own show, Ruffin continues to produce must-see comedy segments, celebrity guest interviews and more on the series.

Ahead of the Sept. 30 premiere, the first two seasons of “The Amber Ruffin Show” are currently streaming on Peacock.
