SundanceTV has renewed its anthology drama series Hap And Leonard for a third season, the network said Monday.
The series, based on the book series of the same name by Joe R. Lansdale, will return for a six episode third season in 2018, according to SundanceTV officials.
The series follows the escapades of two lifelong best friends played by James Purefoy and Michael Kenneth Williams.
Hap And Leonard, produced by AMC Studios and executively produced by John Wirth, Jim Mickle, Nick Damici, Jeremy Platt and Linda Moran, is SundanceTV’s highest-rated original series.
“At once darkly funny and socially relevant, there’s no other series like the southern-noir, Hap and Leonard, and we couldn’t be prouder that it will continue for another season on SundanceTV,” said Jan Diedrichsen, general manager, SundanceTV and Sundance Now. “James and Michael bring new depth and dimension to the buddy-action genre, and Joe Lansdale’s brilliant work continues to be in excellent hands with John Wirth and company.”
