Amy Schumer is taking a break from her Comedy Central show for 'the foreseeable future'


Amy Schumer says she won't be working on her Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer, for "the foreseeable future".

The comedian wrote on Twitter that a fifth season of her show is slated but "for the next year at least", she'll be touring and focusing on writing.

She also tweeted her thanks to Comedy Central for giving her time "to work on other projects".

Amy's comments follow a tweet on Wednesday in which she said: "We aren't making the show anymore."

Until now, there had been no indication the sketch-comedy series might be nearing its conclusion.

After four seasons, it remains a popular and critical hit, having won a Peabody Award and two Emmys, with four Emmy nods this year.

Comedy Central had no immediate comment.
