Is “Inside Amy Schumer” over? It sort of seems like maybe yeah. Even though Comedy Central renewed “IAS” for a fifth season, Schumer just Tweeted this in response to writer Kurt Metzger not being on staff anymore: “we aren’t making the show anymore. There are no writers for it.”
I didn't fire Kurt. He isn't a writer for my show because we aren't making the show anymore. There are no writers for it.

Whoa. Amy, what?
Schumer has been involved some controversy online about Metzger, who apparently Tweeted some stupid things himself about rape. Amy disavowed him, fans wrote and asked if he’d been fired, and Amy replied Metzger didn’t work for her because the show is over.
That’s news to us.
Anyway, Schumer has a new hit book out called “The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo,” and will make lots of movies. But we loved her show! She is such a talent. Stay tuned…
