Yesterday, HBO announced that they are staying in business with comedian Sam Jay as they just picked up a second season of her late night talk show, Pause with Sam Jay.
“I can’t express how excited I am to bring you all a second season of Pause,” said Jay in a statement. “We learned so much during the first season and hope to take those lessons into this new chapter and deliver something even better. There are so many topics to explore and so much growth to be had. I can’t wait to dig in with the team and get to work! See y’all mofos soon!”
“Pause is such a completely unique format, it’s the perfect platform for Sam’s keen social observations, her unfiltered, comedic point of view, and most of all, her insightful conversation and openness to different perspectives,” said Nina Rosenstein, executive vice president, HBO Programming. “We’re so happy to work with Sam and Prentice on a second season.”
“I’m super excited that HBO is picking up our show for a second season,” added Prentice Penny, who is the show’s co-creator, executive producer and writer. “I am so proud of what Sam, Langston and the entire Pause team put together in the first season and think the conversations explored were simply groundbreaking. Sam is an extremely special talent that continues to shape, push and challenge the culture in so many amazing ways. I can’t wait to see what she wants to explore and dive into for the next season.”
While there’s no word on when season two will be premiering, we’re looking forward to it!
