Die Hart

Roku // Season 3
Kevin Hart - playing a version of himself - is on a death-defying quest to become an action star. And with a little help ...

On the heels of the series’ record-breaking weekend debut on The Roku Channel, Roku has announced plans to once again partner with Hartbeat, the global, multiplatform media company creating entertainment where comedy meets culture, to create a third season of “Die Hart.”

Kevin Hart will return for the third installment with more casting and additional details to be shared at a later date.

In “Die Hart 2: Die Harter,” Kevin now wants to cement his legacy as the greatest action star of all time, after achieving his dream of becoming a bona fide action hero in “Die Hart.” He’s developed a concept for a revolutionary movie where the action is so unscripted and unexpected that even Kevin won’t know what’s coming next. But Kevin’s myopic dream comes with a blind spot, and he soon finds himself the victim of an evil revenge plot, orchestrated by someone from his past. Kevin must enlist the help of his favorite co-star, Jordan King (Nathalie Emmanuel), his over-eager assistant, Andre (Ben Schwartz), Andre’s mom, Cynthia (Paula Pell), and legendary Hollywood stuntman Mr. 206 (John Cena) if he wants to survive.

Kevin Hart, Jeff Clanagan, Candice Wilson Cherry, Bryan Smiley, Thai Randolph, Mike Stein, Luke Kelly-Clyne, Kevin Healey, Ty Walker, Tripper Clancy, and Eric Appel served as executive producers of “Die Hart 2: Die Harter.”

*Weekend premiere for Die Hart 2: Die Harter occurred from Friday, March 31 through Sunday, April 2.
