Will There Be A Hacks Season 3?

The comedy-drama series, "Hacks" received critical acclaim, winning Emmy awards in multiple categories, including Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Directing, along with a Golden Globe for Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Season 2 of "Hacks" premiered on May 12, 2022, starting with Deborah (Jean Smart) and Ava's (Hannah Einbinder) return to Las Vegas, looking for a fresh start after a major career blunder.

Given the popularity and hilarious subject matter of the show, will there be a season 3 of "Hacks?" Good news, "Hacks" has been renewed for a third season, as per a recent press release by Warner Media. Now, you can continue following Deborah and Ava's shenanigans, and how their bond further develops amid the unpredictable events that surround them.

Here's everything you need to know about "Hacks" and its season 3 renewal.

A witty, moving comedy series

"Hacks" centers on Deborah Vance, a legend in the stand-up comedy arena, who plays 100 shows a year at the Palmetto casino. Despite spreading herself thin and being ever-ready to please her fans, Deborah's fame is not what it used to be, which seems to be taking a toll on her.

Hustle culture is toxic, you guys, and Deborah finds herself entrapped in this cycle. Even though she is treated with utter respect by everyone in the field, there seems to be an essential aspect that is missing in her everyday life.

As times change and competition becomes more cut-throat, Deborah must come up with fresh, relatable content, fast. Enter TV comedy writer Ava, who has been unemployed since tweeting out something problematic. This obviously does not mean that Ava is devoid of talent, and her writing services prove to be valuable for Deborah, and the pair take some time to adjust to the other's presence.

This marks the start of a moving friendship, in which the two are pushed to make essential changes in order to turn their lives around. There's a beautiful aspect of learning from one another and growing together, which is what makes the show innately special.
