TVLine Items: Sort Of Renewed at HBO Max, Stanley Tucci Cancelled and More

Sort Of Renewed Season 3

There are no ifs, ands or sort ofs about it: HBO Max has renewed Sort Of for a third season.

The pickup comes a week before the Canadian comedy — which revolves around a gender fluid millennial played by series co-creator/star Bilal Baig — wraps its second season stateside; the final two episodes drop Dec. 22.

“It’s been such a creative and rewarding pleasure to sink deeply into the mess of the lives of these characters in Season 2,” Baig said in a statement accompanying Thursday’s renewal announcement. “And I look so forward to continuing and expanding the mess.”
