Hacks Season 2

Was Hacks cancelled or renewed for season 2? When does it start on HBO Max? Who will be returning for the new season? In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.

What Is Hacks About?

The dark mentorship between legendary Las Vegas comedian Deborah Vance (Jean Smart) and her young, entitled writer Ava (Hannah Einbinder) continues to evolve as the two travel across the country workshopping Deborah's new stand-up act.

Created by Broad City trio Paul W. Downs, Lucia Aniello and Jen Statsky, the 10-episode comedy centers on “a dark mentorship” that forms between legendary Las Vegas comedian Deborah Vance (Smart) and an entitled, outcast 25-year-old (relative newcomer Hannah Einbinder), according to the official logline. After more than 2,500 shows (“Eat your heart out, Celine!”), Vance’s residency is in jeopardy. That’s when her agent pairs her with a fledging comedy writer (Einbinder) in the hopes of broadening her comedy and appealing to a younger demographic.

The ten-episode season continues with two episodes each Thursday for four more weeks, and finales on June 10. In addition to Smart and Einbinder, HACKS stars series regular Carl Clemons-Hopkins and recurring guest stars Kaitlin Olson, Christopher McDonald, Paul W. Downs, Mark Indelicato, Poppy Liu, Johnny Sibilly, Meg Stalter and Rose Abdoo.

The series is created and showrun by Paul W. Downs, Lucia Aniello and Jen Statsky. It is executive produced by Downs and Aniello via their Paulilu banner, Statsky via First Thought Productions, as well as Emmy(R) winners Michael Schur via Fremulon, David Miner for 3 Arts Entertainment and Morgan Sackett. The studio is Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
