From a media release:
CBC has renewed its award-winning, all-female original sketch comedy series BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOW from Frantic Films for a fourth season (10 x 30). Created by and starring Carolyn Taylor, Meredith MacNeill, Aurora Browne and Jennifer Whalen, the new season will begin production in Toronto this September for launch on CBC in 2019.
The renewal announcement comes just ahead of the premiere of Season 3 on CBC, the CBC TV streaming app and cbc.ca/watch on Tuesday, September 18 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT).

Additional award wins include a 2018 ACTRA Toronto Award for Outstanding Performance – Ensemble and a 2018 Canadian Comedy Award for Best TV Show.
Fast paced and irreverent, BARONESS VON SKETCH SHOW celebrates the absurd, mines the embarrassing and satirizes our daily lives. Shot entirely on location, this single-camera comedy series takes a fresh look at our navel-gazing, contemporary culture. From marriage equality to screen addiction, Airbnbs to ultrasounds, this satirical sketch show captures the banalities and absurdities of modern life.
