What’s the release date of ‘Hacks’ season 2?
Although the news regarding the renewal of ‘Hacks’ nor showrunners neither streamer has announced the release date for the second season. However, co-creator, co-showrunner, and star Paul W. Downs gave a piece of clues about what we will see in the ‘Hacks’ season 2:
“I think ultimately, while we don’t know the specifics, what we set out to do in this story is to set Ava, Deborah and everyone in their ecosystem on a road to redemption and emotional happiness. So, I think we want to continue down that path. As you’ve seen in the show, it’s typically one step forward, two steps back, but that’s where the fun and games are.”
It is expected that in addition to main stars – Jean Smart, Hannah Einbinder, and Carl Clemons-Hopkins – Mark Indelicato, Poppy Liu, Johnny Sibilly, Megan Stalter, Rose Abdoo, and Christopher McDonald will reprise their roles in the second season.
