'The Amber Ruffin Show' Gets More Episodes at Peacock
The Amber Ruffin Show will stick around into the new year.
NBCUniversal's Peacock streaming platform has extended the "late-night" show's run for 10 additional episodes, the first of which will debut in January. The show has two installments remaining on its initial 10-episode order; they're set to debut on Dec. 11 and 18.
"We are thrilled to get the chance to bring you more episodes, because each episode is a new opportunity to have another margarita," said Ruffin.
Ruffin, a writer and performer on NBC's Late Night With Seth Meyers, kicked off her own show on Peacock in September. The half-hour, weekly series features Ruffin discussing the news of the week, often playing off of announcer Tarik Davis, and serving up comedy bits.
The Amber Ruffin Show is produced by Universal Television and Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions. Ruffin, Jenny Hagel, Seth Meyers and Mike Shoemaker are the executive producers. Hagel, also a Late Night veteran, serves as head writer for the show, leading a room that includes Demi Adejuyigbe, Shantira Jackson and Dewayne Perkins.
Peacock's other "late night" show, Wilmore, wrapped its 11-episode run last week. Host and executive producer Larry Wilmore, who has an overall deal with Universal TV, designed the show for a limited run around the presidential election.
