‘Hacks’ Renewed for Season 4 at Max

Hacks is headed back to the stage at Max.

The streamer has ordered a fourth season of the Emmy-winning comedy starring Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder. The renewal comes on the day Hacks concludes its nine-episode third season (just under the wire for Emmy eligibility this year).

“We congratulate Hacks’ brilliant cast and crew, and our partners at Universal Television. Hacks is a masterfully crafted comedy delivering laughs and sharp insights about the vulnerability and joy of sharing a dream,” said Sarah Aubrey, head of Max original programming. “The creative team behind this singular show is not only brilliant but also a joy to work with. We couldn’t be happier to give viewers another season with Deborah, Ava, and the rest of the Hacks family.”

Season three took a long road to its premiere earlier this month. “To give you an idea of how long we’ve been working on this season, we started writing it in May 2022 and filming it that November,” Lucia Aniello, who co-created the series with Paul W. Downs and Jen Statsky, told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month. “We didn’t finish shooting until January 2024,” with delays for Smart’s recovery from a heart procedure and then last year’s writers and actors strikes.

Max says last week’s release of the seventh and eighth episodes of season three gave the series its best single-day viewership to date (though per usual with streamers, there aren’t any numbers publicly available).

“Hats off to Jen, Lucia and Paul for crafting a world as compelling and poignant as it is clever and funny,” said Erin Underhill, president of Hacks producer Universal Television. “We applaud our outstanding cast, who made it easy to fall in love with these flawed, hilarious and deeply human characters, and we thank everyone at Max for a terrific partnership over the first three seasons and counting. We can’t wait to deliver more Hacks to fans around the world.”
