Showtime has ordered a second season of the late-night variety sketch series “Ziwe’, starring and executive produced by Ziwe (“Desus & Mero”). A total of 12 new episodes will be split into two installments. The inaugural season of “Ziwe” included interviews with Phoebe Bridgers, Fran Lebowitz, Andrew Yang, Eboni K. Williams, Gloria Steinem and Stacey Abrams, along with musical performances by Ziwe, sketches and more – including unscripted and unpredictable interactions with everyday people.

Previously, Ziwe wrote for comedy/variety series “Desus & Mero”, “Our Cartoon President” and “Dickinson.” She has also voiced Kamala Harris and other roles for “Our Cartoon President”, as well as Tooning Out the News, and appears in her own “Pop Show,” which she created and performs at Brooklyn’s Union Hall with original pop songs.
