Always nice to get good, if unsurprising, news early: before the third season of “Inside Amy Schumer” even debuts tonight at 10:30, Comedy Central has already ordered a fourth.

I'll be writing more about the show in a few weeks, because the third episode is an incredibly meticulous and loving all-star parody of “Twelve Angry Men,” of all things, filtered through Schumer's sensibility and her interest in how women are viewed both in show business and in life. But I've seen the first three episodes of the new season, and they're all terrific, at times revisiting topics from previous sketches (even the “Twelve Angry Men” episode is riffing on last season's focus group) but expanding on the ideas, and bringing in impressive guest stars both old and new to play in Schumer's world.

It's a terrific, crucial piece of Comedy Central's current renaissance, and I'm glad it'll be around for a while longer.
