The Monday night show also stars Christine Ebersole, Matt Jones, Maribeth Monroe, Vernee Watson, Shola Adewusi and Barry Shabaka Henley.
“So enormously proud to announce we’ve been renewed for season four!! Thank you beautiful people for watching our lovely Bob Hearts Abishola”, said Olowofoyeku on her Instagram page.
