Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

After just barely avoiding the fall of democracy and despite a literal ongoing plague, TBS is thrilled to announce the renewal of its Emmy Award-winning show Full Frontal with Samantha Bee for a sixth season. A trailblazing force in late night, the series has continued to use political satire to entertain, educate, and empower viewers while keeping the government in check. This year, Bee also blazed an actual trail from her NYC studio to her backyard, where she taped new episodes during the pandemic with help from her husband and fellow Executive Producer, Jason Jones. Season six will premiere Wednesday, January 13 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT on TBS.
