(JTA) — Stoners, Jewish feminists and wacky comedy fans rejoice — Comedy Central has renewed two of its most popular shows, “Broad City” and “Inside Amy Schumer.”

“Broad City,” written and acted by Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson, was given the very rare green light for two subsequent seasons. The third season premieres on Feb. 17.

“Inside Amy Schumer,” which stars it eponymous creator, was renewed for the customary one season. The fourth season will debut later this year.

Comedy Central also OK’d what could be Glazer’s most mind-bending project yet: a three-part mini-series called “Time Traveling Bong.”

The rising comedy stars took to Twitter to celebrate. Glazer exclaimed that she had some “job security” and Schumer took the opportunity to presumably mock Ben Affleck.
