Anyone who considers themselves a fan of comedy should not overlook “Hacks,” HBO Max’s freshman series, which is already one of the year’s best new sitcoms and one of its best shows overall.
The series stars national treasure Jean Smart being Deborah Vance, a famous Las Vegas comic whose career is dwindling but refuses to go. Hannah Einbinder co-stars with Ava Daniels, a 25-year-old millennial comedy writer.
The same agent represents her and Deborah, and they initially appear to be opposed but gradually learn to work together.
Not only is “Hacks” entertaining, but it is also a ground-breaking show in terms of representation, as it stars two female characters whose primary focus is their careers.
And, despite their disagreements, the program is fundamentally a love story about female friendship across decades.
Alternatively, as co-creator Paul W. Downs described it, “[Hacks] is actually about these two women who are in desperate need of one other and have been shut off for so long.”
On June 10, 2021, the first season of “Hacks” was completed. The following is what we know about a possible sequel.

When will Hacks Season 2 be released?
“Hacks” fans did not have to wait long for word of renewal, as HBO Max ordered a second season on June 8, 2021. That was two days before the first season’s final two episodes aired. The delay was also not suspenseful.
According to HBO Max, “Hacks” is one of the streaming service’s most popular new shows.
“We have been blown away by the fantastic response to ‘Hacks’ – we owe this renewal to every individual who watched the show and then recommended it to a friend,” said Sarah Aubrey, HBO Max’s head of original content.
HBO Max has not confirmed a particular date for its premiere, but we can make an educated guess based on the first season’s chronology. HBO Max acquired the series in May 2020 (via The Hollywood Reporter), and it launched in May 2021.
Given that and the fact that filming began in February 2022 (via TV Insider), we’d estimate that Season 2 will premiere in the second half of the year.

What is the plot of Season 2 of Hacks?
At the moment, Paul W. Downs and co-creators Lucia Aniello and Jen Statsky are unlikely to have completely fleshed-out plans for Season 2.
However, two days after “Hacks” was renewed, Downs and the company discussed some of their ideas for the show’s future in a virtual presence at the ATX TV Festival (via Deadline). It will mostly focus on continuing the tale introduced in Season 1.
“Our goal with this story is to guide Ava, Deborah, and everyone else in their ecosystem toward atonement and emotional bliss,” Downs added.
“As a result, I believe we should continue down that route. As the show demonstrated, it’s often one stride forward and two steps back, but that’s where the fun and games are.”
Deborah and Ava are frequently at odds, yet “Hacks” is essentially a love story about two individuals who learn they need one another. While there will still be lots of friction and awkward moments — they did kiss at the end of Season 1.
For example — Hannah Einbinder believes that Season 2 will show the couple collaborating more frequently than not. “I suppose I want [Ava and Deborah] to conquer the globe truly. If there is any form of bad force, I want them to fight with the forces of good,”‘She stated.
Additionally, there are many potentials for the other characters to develop. DJ continues to pursue irrational financial ventures, while Marcus’s personal life is completely shambles. Whatever occurs, it should be amusing.
