Hacks is back! Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinber star in first teaser for season three of the hit series which comes back in May

The first teaser for season three of Hacks was shared on Friday when the May premiere date was revealed.

Jean Smart, 72, was seen as comedian Deborah Vance with Hannah Einbinber, 28, as her young, cynical comedy writer Ava Daniels.

It’s been a year now Deborah fired Ava after writing her highly successful new comedy special in season two.

“A year after parting ways, Deborah Vance (Smart) capitalizes on the success of her stand-up special, while Ava (Einbinder) pursues new opportunities in Los Angeles,” the official log line reads.

The trailer debuts on May 2 and opens with Smart in a long, sequined coat authoritatively entering a casino.

The trailer, which is set to Elton John’s I’m Still Standing, then cuts to Ava trying to catch a ride by putting her hand in the door to prevent it from closing.

When the door opens, Deborah is standing in the elevator and the two stare awkwardly at each other.

The trailer then quickly cuts to various scenes from the upcoming season without revealing too much of the third season’s plot.

The nine-episode season kicks off with two episodes on May 2, followed by two new episodes per week and the season finale on May 30.

The chemistry between Smart and Einbinder is a big part of what makes the series work, in addition to the great writing and acting from the entire cast.

“Deborah and Ava are the secret sauce in the Hacks recipe,” Smart said recently in a phone conversation with Vanity fair.

“They’re filling in gaps in the other person’s life that they don’t even realize, or certainly don’t necessarily talk about,” she added.

Created and screened by Lucia Aniello, Paul W. Downs and Jen Statsky, Hacks features a main cast of Smart, Einbinder and Carl Clemons-Hopkins.
