Amy Schumer relieved fans’ anxiety on Thursday when she clarified that “Inside Amy Schumer” is not ending.

“#InsideAmySchumer is not cancelled. @ComedyCentral has provided us with a wonderful home and we couldn’t be happier there. I am just touring,” she tweeted.

“Doing Standup and focusing on writing more for the next year at least. We are slated for a season 5 but not in the foreseeable future,” she continued.

Fans were sent into a tailspin on Wednesday after Schumer seemed to say the show was over while tweeting about “Inside Amy Schumer” writer Kurt Metzger.

“I didn’t fire Kurt. He isn’t a writer for my show because we aren’t making the show anymore. There are no writers for it,” she wrote.

Metzger has been writing lengthy online posts about another comedian accused of rape. Metzger caught criticism after he began writing about Aaron Glaser, a comedian associated with the improv-comedy mainstay Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) in New York City. Multiple women accused him of sexual assault, and he was banned from performing at UCB after an internal investigation. Glaser has not been charged and has denied the allegations.

Metzger seemed to defend Glaser, saying that none of Glaser’s accusers went to the police.
