Jean Smart & Co. are taking the show on the road in Hacks season 2 first look images
Deborah Vance and Ava Daniels against the world — that's where things stand when Hacks returns for season 2 this May on HBO Max. Once-relevant Las Vegas comedy queen Deborah (Jean Smart) takes her stand-up act on the road with her decades-younger writer Ava (Hannah Einbinder) in tow, workshopping new material in small clubs across the country. While a detour to the Grand Canyon proves to be "really personal" for one of them, teases Smart, the two will continue to butt heads: "It starts out really, really badly."
Buckle up, as the stars — as well as showrunners Lucia Aniello, Paul W. Downs, and Jen Statsky — preview the journey ahead.
