8 Shows To Watch While Waiting For More At Home With Amy Sedaris

There's plenty of wacky comedy to check out in the interim.

Phil Caruso

Ahead of its Season 3 finale on July 29, there's no word on whether At Home with Amy Sedaris Season 4 has been greenlit. But there's still time. The truTV series was renewed for its current season on May 9, 2019 — a year ahead of its Season 3 premiere. So if it follows the same pattern, the comedy series could get renewed any day now, perhaps even premiering at the same time next year.

In addition to playing a number of bizarre characters, Sedaris's cooking show parody features recurring appearances from comedians like Cole Escola, Los Espookys star Ana Fabrega, and Heather Lawless, along with an expansive list of guests. In Season 3 alone, cameos have included Jason Sudeikis, Michael Cera, Paul Rudd, Ann Dowd, Justin Theroux, and David Alan Grier, among others. But even if At Home does return for a Season 4, it will probably be at least a year before more episodes air. And while Sedaris' old Comedy Central series Strangers with Candy isn't streaming everywhere, there are plenty of other shows to keep fans occupied while they wait on any renewal updates. Below, a selection of shows to try next.

Search Party

This TBS-turned-HBO Max series stars Alia Shawkat as Dory, a Brooklyn hipster who becomes obsessed with finding her old NYU classmate, Chantal, after she goes missing. It also stars John Early (who often pops up in At Home), as well as John Reynolds, Meredith Hagner, and Brandon Micheal Hall. Escola even turns up in Season 3.

A Black Lady Sketch Show

Robin Thede created this Emmy-nominated HBO series, which she stars in along with Quinta Brunson, Gabrielle Dennis, and Ashley Nicole Black. Some sketch highlights include "Church Open Mic" ("Why are her pies wet, Lord?"), "Rome and Julissa," and "The Basic Ball," among others.

Lady Dynamite

It's tough to match the bizarre energy of At Home, but Maria Bamford's offbeat Netflix series Lady Dynamite gets pretty close.

Stath Lets Flats

You may recognize Jamie Demetriou from Fleabag, where he played a character named simply "Bus Rodent" whom Phoebe Waller-Bridge's protagonist flirts with on public transit. In this Channel 4 series, Demetriou plays the titular Stath — a man who is simply terrible at his job of renting apartments. Think of it as the British version of Detroiters (which is sadly not streaming anywhere, either!).

Making It

If you're missing the actual crafting aspect of Sedaris' show, then try this Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman-hosted crafting competition, which is both kind-hearted and educational.

Astronomy Club: The Sketch Show

This gone-too-soon Netflix series featured the all-Black comedy troupe the Astronomy Club. It's goofy, smart, and its cancellation is a travesty.

Nailed It!

This is the baking show for food enthusiasts who maybe aren't great in the kitchen themselves. These contestants can relate.

Gayme Show

OK OK, so not many people signed up for Quibi, but if you happen to be one of those people, check out the Matt Rodgers and Dave Mizzoni-hosted game show, where straight contestants duke it out for the chance to be named "Queen of the Straights." Much like At Home, it features a variety of guests, categorized into "Wise Queers" like SNL's Bowen Yang (Rogers' cohost on their podcast, Las Culturistas), Joel Kim Booster, and Trixie Mattel; and a "Woman Who Gets It," the likes of which include Robin Thede, Ilana Glazer, and Nicole Byer.
