The highly anticipated return of the Emmy-winning comedy series, Hacks, has fans buzzing with excitement as Max announces the premiere date and releases a tantalizing teaser for its upcoming third season.

Set to debut on May 2, the new season promises to deliver nine episodes filled with the trademark wit, charm, and sharp humor that viewers have come to love.

Led by the incomparable Jean Smart, who has captivated audiences with her portrayal of the legendary comedian Deborah Vance, Hacks has been a standout hit since its premiere in 2021.

Smart’s portrayal of the seasoned veteran navigating the complexities of the entertainment industry has earned her critical acclaim and an Emmy win for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.

In season 3, fans can expect to see Smart’s character basking in the success of her hit standup special, while also contending with the challenges that come with maintaining her status as a comedic icon. Meanwhile, Hannah Einbinder’s Ava, the young and ambitious comedy writer, embarks on a journey of self-discovery and new opportunities back in Los Angeles.

The dynamic between Deborah and Ava, which lies at the heart of the show, continues to evolve as the two women from different generations navigate their professional and personal lives.

The new teaser offers a glimpse into the awkward reunion between the pair, set to the tune of Elton John’s “I’m Still Standing,” as they unexpectedly cross paths in an elevator.

But it’s not just the reunion that has fans buzzing. The teaser also hints at plenty of romance in store for the characters, with Deborah, Marcus, and Ava all seen sharing passionate kisses with their respective love interests.

However, amidst the romance and laughter, the prickly dynamic between Deborah and Ava remains a central focus, as they grapple with issues of political correctness and evolving social norms.

A scene in the teaser highlights this tension, as Ava attempts to caution Deborah about the potentially problematic nature of some of her material. Their exchange, peppered with humor and sharp dialogue, serves as a reminder of the show’s ability to tackle sensitive topics with wit and insight.

In addition to Smart and Einbinder, Hacks boasts a talented ensemble cast including Paul W. Downs, Megan Stalter, Carl Clemons-Hopkins, Kaitlin Olson, Christopher McDonald, Rose Abdoo, and Lorenza Izzo. The new season also welcomes an array of guest stars, including Helen Hunt, Christina Hendricks, Christopher Lloyd, Dan Bucatinsky, George Wallace, and Tony Goldwyn, adding to the excitement surrounding the show’s return.

With its winning combination of stellar performances, clever writing, and biting humor, Hacks has cemented its place as a must-watch series.

As fans eagerly await the premiere of season 3, they can rest assured knowing that Deborah, Ava, and the rest of the Hacks crew are poised to deliver another unforgettable ride filled with laughs, drama, and plenty of heart.

So mark your calendars and get ready to laugh, cry, and everything in between when Hacks returns to Max on May 2 with the first two episodes of its highly anticipated third season.
