Finale of HBO’s “Hacks”: The HBO Max Show Sets Itself Up For Season 2
The first season of Hacks comes to a close tonight, with HBO presenting the double-episode finale.
Deborah Vance (Jean Smart), a legendary diva, must modify her Las Vegas residency act to appeal to a younger audience in the comedy-drama. She enlists the services of Ava Daniels (Hannah Einbinder), a young comedy writer, to help her freshen up her act.
The new HBO Max series, which premiered last month, has received rave reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a perfect score of 100 percent based on 34 reviews. With an IMDB audience rating of 8.3, it’s also proving to be a hit with fans.
Will Hacks get renewed for a second season?
The show must go on for Smart, Einbinder, and the Hacks cast. The series will return for a second season, according to HBO Max.
Smart stated in a statement to Washington Newsday, “I am incredibly happy we were picked up for a second season, and I told Hannah it’s ‘No more Miss Nice Guy; it’s Bette and Joan from now on!” And who is Bette, by the way?”
“We have been blown away by the great feedback to Hacks,” stated co-creators and showrunners Paul W. Downs, Lucia Aniello, and Jen Statsky. We owe our renewal to everyone who watched the show and then urged a friend to watch it as well.
“We’re thrilled that the tale struck a chord with viewers, and we can’t wait to get started on season 2.”
The end of Hacks Season 1
There’s a new double bill of Hacks available to watch on HBO Max now. All ten episodes from season 1 are available to watch ahead of the second season.
The final two episodes are titled “Interview” and “I Think She Will.” In the finale, Deborah and Ava head back to Vegas for their last show at the Palmetto. Ava tries to keep her new TV opportunity a secret from Deborah but someone else knows and leverages the truth against her. Meanwhile, Deborah will be faced with the choice between playing it safe or putting her career on the line with her first radically honest show.
The show’s recurring characters include Carl Clemons-Hopkins, Kaitlin Olsen (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia), Christopher McDonald (Happy Gilmore) and Mark Indelicato (Ugly Betty).
