HBO just renewed "A Black Lady Sketch Show" for a second season before its first season has even ended.

The series created by Robin Thede and produced by "Insecure" creator Issa Rae has a 100% Rotten Tomatoes critics rating.  The six-episode season debuted on August 2 and ends on September 6.

The show features sketches performed by a core cast of black women: Thede, Ashley Nicole Black, Gabrielle Dennis, and Quinta Brunson. Celebrity guests so far have included Angela Bassett, Laverne CoxLena Waithe, and Larry Wilmore.

Amy Gravitt, executive vice president of HBO programming said, "It’s been thrilling to see the audience embrace the characters that Robin, Ashley, Gabrielle and Quinta have brought to life," said Gravitt. "We had a blast making this groundbreaking sketch show with Robin, Dime and all of the writers and producers, and I can’t wait to see what next season holds."

HBO has also renewed fellow  freshman shows "Los Espookys" and "Euphoria."
