Streaming fans will get to see much more of Amber Ruffin throughout the year.

On Tuesday, Peacock announced it has ordered a second season of the funnywoman’s eponymous late-night show.

“We are thrilled to keep doing what we love for another season,” Ruffin, who also writes, and executive produces the half-hour series, said with the announcement. “Margaritas for everyone!”

The pickup comes a few days before the Sept. 17 final episode of season one on NBCUniversal’s streaming platform.

Season two will premiere Oct. 8, with new episodes launching every Friday.

The Omaha, Neb., native first broke through in the business as a formidable writer and performer on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” before landing her own show, which began with a 10-episode order in September 2020.

The Tarik Davis-narrated show was extended in December and continued to run through the spring and summer for a total of 35 episodes, scoring an Emmy nomination for outstanding writing for a variety series.

Ruffin was nominated in the same category for four consecutive years as a writer for “Late Night with Seth Meyers.”

Co-executive produced by Meyers and Mike Shoemaker, “The Amber Ruffin Show” recently welcomed a live fully vaccinated audience to its Rockefeller Center studio in New York City.
