You better get used to seeing female comedians on TV. Comedy Central announced that both Inside Amy Schumer and Broad City were renewed for additional seasons.

The station ordered a fifth season of Schumer's Emmy-winning show ahead of its fourth season that will start in April. Meanwhile the Amy Poehler-produced Broad City will return for both Season 4 and 5 a fourth. The Ilana Glazer- and Abbi Jacobson-starring series will be back in February for its third season.

It's a big move for all the ladies involved and shows a network putting a ton of confidence in female talent which, honestly, TV is still majorly lacking in comparison to their male counterparts.

Look forward to other badass females shaking things up on television in 2016 including Samantha Bee's late-night talk show Full Frontal on TBS, the Margaret Cho-created and -starring weed shop comedy Highland on Amazon, and more.
