Ooh, it’s happening! A Black Lady Sketch Show is returning for a second season in April, and HBO just dropped the first full-length trailer for its upcoming episodes.

Created by and starring Robin Thede, the three-time Emmy-nominated variety series also sees the return of core cast members Gabrielle Dennis and Ashley Nicole Black, alongside two new featured players, Laci Mosley and Skye Townsend.

As teased in the trailer, not only do the women bring back some of the funniest recurring characters from season 1, but they also welcome a slew of celebrity guests, including executive producer Issa Rae, Gabrielle Union, Jesse Williams, Miguel, Skai Jackson, Laz Alonso, Omarion, Kim Wayans, Ayesha Curry, Lance Gross and Wunmi Mosaku.

Gabrielle reflects on being called one of the 'fattest girls in pop'

  Gabrielle reflects on being called one of the 'fattest girls in pop' Singer Gabrielle has recalled being branded one of the "five fattest girls in pop" at the height of her success. © Bang Showbiz Gabrielle The 51-year-old singer wishes she’d been kinder to herself when she was younger because she used to say “awful things” to ease the pain of other people’s jibes and it’s taken her a long time to feel it is “OK to be” herself. She told The Big Issue magazine: “When I entered the music industry I became really self-deprecating.

Speaking with ET during season 1, Black explained that “the major goal was to show as many different aspects of Black lady life as possible.” And because they’re able to write and play so many characters, they’re not beholden to protecting the image of “the one Black woman on a TV show.”

“When it’s all Black women and you’re going to play 30 of them over the course of the season, then some of them can be really bad, some of them can be murderers, some of them can be jerks,” she adds.

And with that, audiences get to watch what HBO describes as a “narrative sketch comedy series featuring a core cast of Black women living relatable, hilarious experiences in a magical reality that subverts traditional expectations.”
