HBO Max is hitting the green light on season 2 of its original comedy Hacks. The streamer renewed the show for a second season before the first one even finished airing its last episodes. Hacks has been one of HBO Max’s best successes in terms of Original content since its debut, consistently ranking in the top ten most viewed titles out of all available content.

The series premise centers around a Las Vegas resident comedian who hires a new young writer to mentor and revamp her set. The series was created by Paul W. Downs, Lucia Aniello and Jen Statsky.

“We knew immediately that Lucia, Paul and Jen brought us a winner,” said Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max. “We couldn’t be happier about the tremendous response from our viewers and critics alike, and we salute the executive producers; Jean, Hannah and the rest of the brilliant cast; and our partners at Universal.”

All of season one is now streaming on HBO Max.
