HBO Max’s Hacks first premiered in May 2021 and has quickly made a name for itself. The comedy-drama has won multiple Primetime Emmy awards, including those for Outstanding Writing, Outstanding Directing, and Smart, Outstanding Lead Actress. This is in addition to a Golden Globe for the Best Television Series- Musical or Comedy.

Following two successful seasons, the Jean Smart starrer was renewed for a third season back in June 2022, which is now set to release on May 2. Boasting a total of 9 episodes, season 3 also breaks the norm when it comes to the overall number. Season 1 had 10, while season 2 only consisted of 8, which brings us to the new release.
