Bill Maher

Real Time with Bill Maher has been renewed for two more seasons, HBO announced on Tuesday.

"Bill Maher's irreverent wit and fearless insights make him the perfect observer for these unpredictable times," HBO president Michael Lombardo said in a statement. "I'm delighted that we can continue to offer an uncensored forum for his original and thoughtful humor."

The renewal comes as a part of Maher's new three-year deal with HBO. The show's current season is averaging at 4.1 million viewers per episode — the largest audience it's had in three years.
