It sounds like Amy Schumer may not be doing another season of her Comedy Central series, Inside Amy Schumer – or at least that’s what she indicated on Twitter Wednesday night.

It started when Schumer tweeted about how “saddened and disappointed” she was with one of the show’s writers, Kurt Metzger, who said some hurtful comments about rape victims.

Then she added, “Kurt does not work for me. He is not a writer on my show. Please stop asking me about it. His words are not mine.” 

Her Twitter following then questioned whether Schumer fired Metzger. That’s when she dropped the bomb. “I didn’t fire Kurt. He isn’t a writer for my show because we aren’t making the show anymore,” she wrote. “There are no writers for it.”

She also retweeted a fan’s response, saying “You’re the best, and we’ll miss your show. And Twitter sucks sometimes.” 

Hmmm, wonder if Amy really means it? Guess we’ll find out soon enough. In the meantime, Schumer has been on book tour for her just released opus The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo.

UPDATE: Schumer clarified her tweet from last night to say Inside Amy Schumer is not cancelled, just on hiatus. The comedian wrote,  is not cancelled. @ComedyCentral has provided us with a wonderful home and we couldn’t be happier there. I am just touring. Doing Standup and focusing on writing more for the next year at least. We are slated for a season 5 but not in the foreseeable future.”

She added, “I’m grateful @ComedyCentral is giving me this time to work on other projects. Now please grab my book for now.”

Phew.
