In addition to these, Laurie Metcalf, Martha Kelly, Ming-Na Wen, and Susie Essman will also be joining the cast of the upcoming season as recurring stars. In terms of guest appearances, it is expected that Margaret Cho and Devon Sawa will be spicing up things in the second season.
The show mainly revolves around Jean Smart character, Deborah Vance and Hannah Ein Binder character, Ava. It shows Las Vegas stand up comedian Deborah Vance ending up in a difficult situation which leads her to work with an entitled writer aka Ava. However the two do not want to work with each other and hate being a team. The differences between the two always get the best of them throughout the show.
And just when they had realized that they have no other option but to work together in season 1, they had to part ways as Ava’s father passes away. Now, in the second season, the two will pair up once again to hit the road and perform at small venues. After all, Deborah’s residency in Las Vegas has come to an end.
But things between the two will be even more sore this time. As just before the first season ended, we saw Ava drunkenly write an email about all the things she dislikes about Deborah, painting her picture as no less than that of a monster. Also, she ends up sending this email to the very production company whose plan is to create a show featuring Deborah.
How will Deborah forgive Ava? And what new hurdles will come in the path of our favorite two characters? I guess we’ll just have to wait for season 2 to release!
Hacks Season 2 Episodes
Unlike the first season, the second season of Hacks will have fewer episodes i.e. 8 episodes. The episodes will not be released all at once and will follow the same strategy as that in season 1. This means that the first two episodes will release on May 12 on Thursday. The other two will release the next Thursday and so on until the finale which will air on June 2, 2022.
Where can I watch Hacks Season 2?
Hacks is a HBO Max original and all its episodes of the first season are available on this platform. For viewers in the UK, Hacks season 1 is available on Prime Video. Viewers in other parts of the world will have to wait for any news by HBO Max that will allow them to stream the show as well.
In addition to this, the show first releases on HBO Max and then on Prime Video. And for now, only the release date for HBO Max has been shared. Hence, Hacks season 2 will only be releasing on HBO Max for the time being.
