What can we expect from Hacks Season 3?

The official synopsis for Season 3 remains under wraps, but based on the cliff hangers of Season 2 and hints from the cast and crew, we can expect a season brimming with comedic fireworks and emotional growth. 

Season 2 saw Deborah Vance experiencing resurgence in her career, thanks to Ava’s fresh perspective and writing skills. However, their newfound professional success came at a personal cost. Deborah’s strained relationship with her daughter reached a boiling point, while Ava grappled with the fallout of her leaked stand-up routine. 

Season 3 will likely explore the aftermath of these events. Deborah might attempt to mend fences with her daughter while navigating the treacherous waters of newfound fame. Ava, on the other hand, could be dealing with the consequences of her viral, controversial material, potentially facing backlash from the comedy world.

Here are a few potential theories to ponder on:

  • Can Deborah and her daughter bridge the gap between them? This season could explore their attempts at reconciliation, navigating old wounds, and forging a new path forward.
  • With her newfound success, will Ava be able to handle the pressure and scrutiny? We might see her struggle to balance her newfound fame with her artistic integrity.
  • Season 2 ended with Deborah hinting at a potential national tour. Season 3 could showcase the challenges and triumphs of this venture, highlighting the dynamics between Deborah, Ava, and the rest of their crew on the road.
