HBO Max Renews 'Hacks' for Season 2, Jean Smart Releases Funniest Statement

HBO Max has announced that the acclaimed new series Hacks has been renewed for a second season!

The comedy series explores a dark mentorship that forms between Deborah Vance (Jean Smart), a legendary Las Vegas comedian, and an entitled, outcast 25-year-old (Hannah Einbinder).

The streaming service has been rolling out the series over the last few weeks and it has been “consistently ranking in the top ten most viewed titles out of all available content.”

Jean released a funny statement about the renewal. She said, “I am absolutely thrilled we are picked up for a second season and I told Hannah it’s ‘No more Miss Nice Guy; from now on it’s Bette and Joan! And guess who’s BETTE??!!’”

Co-creators and showrunners Paul W. Downs, Lucia Aniello, and Jen Statsky said, “We have been blown away by the positive reception to Hacks — we owe this renewal to every single person who tuned into the show and then told a friend to watch. We are so grateful we get to continue, and want to thank our partners at HBO Max and Universal Television for supporting the show so fiercely, and our wonderful cast and crew for delivering on every level. Many years ago, we set out to tell a deeply important story that needed to be told — that of a handsome, charming talent manager and his two demanding female clients. We’re so glad that story resonated with audiences, and we can’t wait to get to work on season two. See you soon!”

Jean has become an HBO staple after also starring in the recent limited series Watchmen and Mare of Easttown.

Here are HBO Max’s top ten TV shows from its first year of business.
