Hacks is not a tech show but instead a comedy-drama that revolves around Deborah Vance, a struggling stand-up comedian, but fans are eager for Hacks Season 3.

When Ava starts working as the new head writer for Deborah, their professional relationship soon blossoms into friendship as Ava gives her the push she needs, and Deborah helps Ava through her issues.

Created by Lucia Aniello, Paul W. Downs, and Jen Statsky, the comedy series premiered in May 2021 on HBO Max. It highlights the bond between a millennial and a boomer while maintaining a comedic and dramatic tone throughout the narrative. This is one of the prominent reasons it has received much appreciation from fans and critics throughout its two seasons. As the curtains close on the sophomore round of the show, fans are eager to know if there will be another edition of the series or not since we have all the information you need regarding Hacks season 3!

HBO Max has not revealed the Hacks season 3 premiere date, but filming started at the end of 2022! On her Instagram page, Jean Smart shared a celebratory first day of filming photo on November 28, 2022, wearing a T-shirt with “The B**** is Back” printed on it. “Back to work, first day of shooting season 3. Yay!” she captioned the photo.

Sadly, filming was put on a brief hiatus in early 2023 after Jean underwent heart surgery. “February is American Heart Month — a time when the nation spotlights heart health, so it feels important to share with all of you that I am recovering from a recent, successful heart procedure,” she revealed in a Feb. 23 post to her Instagram account. “I am fortunate to have excellent professional care and support from family and friends while I recuperate. Please listen to your body and talk to your doctor — I’m very glad I did!”

HBO Max and Universal Television released a statement of support following Jean’s announcement. “We are so happy that our beloved Jean Smart’s heart procedure was successful, and she’s on the mend. HBO Max and UTV send their well wishes,” they said, per Variety.

However, we expect Hacks season 3 will be released in Q3 or Q4 of 2023.

If the show gets renewed for season 3, the main cast lineup will probably remain the same. Thus, we hope to see Jean Smart reprise her role as Deborah Vance, the legendary stand-up comedian, while Hannah Einbinder is expected to continue essaying the role of Ava Daniels, the comedy writer.

Other cast members who play pivotal roles in the comedy series might also reprise their respective roles. This includes Carl Clemons-Hopkins (Marcus), Rose Abdoo (Josefina), Christopher McDonald (Marty Ghilain), Paul W. Downs (Jimmy LuSaque), Mark Indelicato (Damien), Kaitlin Olson (Deborah “DJ” Vance Jr.), and Jane Adams (Nina). Moreover, we can never leave out the possibility of new characters getting introduced. So, if it happens, we will likely see some fresh faces in the potential season 3.

In season 2, Deborah and Ava go through their own sets of issues, highlighting the difference between the life of a boomer and that of a millennial. The stand-up comedy icon works on her new material and manifests its success while on the road. On the other hand, the talented writer’s personality grows as she adapts to a new lifestyle. Deborah finds it tough to connect to her audience as the season progresses, while Ava finds unexpected success. Eventually, the latter tries reconnecting with her mother, Nina, and Deborah welcomes unexpected company.

Season 3 is likely to follow Ava and Deborah’s journey as they face more professional and personal challenges while they help each other deal with them. We might see several positive or negative changes in the relationship between Ava and her mother. Deborah’s career is also likely to face some changes. If the show gets recommissioned, there are many things to look forward to.

Hacks Season 3 Trailer: When can I see it?

While there is no sign of a trailer just yet, there is at least plenty of comedy to be had by deep-diving YouTube.

The team have created hours of specials, behind-the-scenes clips, and sketches for our viewing pleasure.

We’re starting you off with Meg Stalter attempting to interview the rest of her cast mates… not as easy as it looks, is it?!
