Accusations that Amy Schumer stole jokes have proven popular online, but many comics disagree. HBO

It looked for a while like Inside Amy Schumer , the Comedy Central sketch series, had been cancelled. Major outlets, including The Hollywood Reporter, reported the possible end of Inside Amy Schumer after a handful of tweets from Schumer herself suggested as much.

Schumer implied the cancellation of Inside Amy Schumer in the midst of condemning comments by her former Inside Amy Schumer writer Kurt Metzger, who’s been a huge butthole on Facebook regarding ongoing drama surrounding multiple rape allegations against a performer at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater in New York.

After the tweet implying the end of Inside Amy Schumer, Schumer retweeted a fan bemoaning the show’s fate:

But follow-ups Friday morning corrected the impression, as Schumer explained that Season 5 of Inside Amy Schumer isn’t cancelled, simply delayed.

It seems Schumer will be adopting a schedule similar to Louis CK, with his notoriously on-again, off-again series Louie.

Inside Amy Schumer isn’t cancelled, but for now no one knows when Season 5 will premiere.
