Casual renewed for season 3 at Hulu

Posted on

Casual is getting a third season.

Just two weeks after season 2 premiered, Hulu announced Thursday it has renewed the Hulu Original/Lionsgate Television dark comedy for a 13-episode season 3, set to arrive in 2017.

From Oscar-nominated director Jason Reitman (Up in the Air) and creator Zander Lehmann, Casual‘s sophomore campaign follows Alex (Tommy Dewey), Valerie (Michaela Watkins), and Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) after a season full of disastrous dates, not to mention their parents’ wedding. But new friends, business partners, boyfriends, and girlfriends can only do so much to distract them from a shared and recurring history of dysfunction.

In addition to the renewal news, Hulu announced it inked a first-look deal with Reitman, a first for the company.

New episodes of Casual appear Tuesdays. Each week, a member of the cast or crew goes behind the scenes of the episode with EW.
