HBO Max Renews Emmy Award-Winning Comedy Series HACKS For A Third Season

HBO Max has renewed the multi-Emmy(R) Award-winning comedy series HACKS for a third season. The series' first season received many accolades including awards from AFI, Peabody, Critics Choice, DGA, SAG(R), WGA and GLAAD. Season two, which explores the evolving dark mentorship between legendary Las Vegas comedian Deborah Vance (Jean Smart) and her young, entitled writer Ava (Hannah Einbinder), premiered to critical acclaim on May 12 and is streaming now on HBO Max.

IndieWire praised HACKS as "a series of endless wonders" and AV Club wrote that the new season is "pitch-perfect" starring "a never-better Jean Smart." The Wrap noted "Einbinder is riveting," USA Today hailed Carl Clemons-Hopkins as a "clear standout," Collider calls Meg Stalter "absolutely brilliant," and Salon writes that Jimmy is "played with a wonderful sense of knowing by Downs." Of "the divine comedy from creators Lucia Aniello, Paul W. Downs, and Jen Statsky" The Wrap adds it "remains one of the most consummately funny shows on TV." Variety effuses about Aniello's directing, writing "honed so brilliantly... [Aniello] finds surreal and beautiful moments." Season two's debut marked a new daily high for the series, 125% above its season one debut day last year.

Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max quote: "We congratulate HACKS' extraordinarily gifted executive producers and cast, and our partners at Universal Television. We are overjoyed at the audience and press response to the new season, and glad to give viewers more of this gorgeous, hilarious, moving show."

We're thrilled that our HBO Max partners have renewed this standout series for a third season, and we can't wait to see what's next for Deborah, Ava and the rest of our outstanding ensemble."

HACKS stars Jean Smart, an Emmy(R), SAG Awards(R) and Critics Choice Awards winner for her performance in season one of the series, along with Hannah Einbinder, Carl Clemons-Hopkins and Jane Adams, who were all nominated for Emmys(R) for the first season.
