IFC’s variety sketch series Sherman’s Showcase from Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin not only got a renewal for a second season this week at its network IFC, but got the season pick-up right before the premiere of their Black History Month Spectacular special tonight at 10PM on AMC. Sherman’s Showcase has a hell of time jumping around history with all sorts of sketches under the guise of a classic musical variety show.
This bodes well for the inclusivity and amplifying of BIPOC voices that Hollywood says that they’re going to do going forward, especially following the unfortunate cancellation of another black sketch series Astronomy Club at Netflix after one season.
The second season of Sherman’s Showcase is set to come in 2021 (though any sort of release date is tentative at this point in the pandemic) and will air on both IFC and AMC. For now, you can and should enjoy Sherman’s Showcase’s Black History Month Spectacular tonight on this Juneteenth.
