Hap and Leonard are poised to remain best friends, if not forever then at least for another season.
SundanceTV has renewed the James Purefoy-Michael Kenneth Williams dramedy for a third season, the cabler announced on Monday. Season 3, like Seasons 1 and 2 before it, will consist of six episodes.
The third season — slated to premiere in 2018 — will draw inspiration from The Two-Bear Mambo, the third installment of author Joe R. Lansdale’s book series. (Season 1 and 2 were based on Savage Season and Mucho Mojo, respectively.)
“We’re beyond psyched to bring the boys back for a third helping of mayhem,” enthused EP Jim Mickle. “It’s a show that doesn’t fold up neatly into one defined box and that’s what makes it special, so thanks to SundanceTV for believing in it and championing it from day one. We also owe a big thank you to the fans for the phenomenal response so far.”
