Hacks season three trailer brings Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder back where they started

The latest look at the upcoming season of HBO Max's Emmy-winning series also offers a glimpse at J. Smith-Cameron's steamy role.

Deborah Vance (Jean Smart) and Ava (Hannah Einbinder) are back at square one in the Hacks season three trailer. After Deborah let Ava go to spread her wings and grow as a writer, Ava cannot continue without her mentor.

Since viewers last saw Deborah, her special has become a smash hit and she’s become a bigger star than she ever was. “Your career has never been hotter. Did you ever think you’d be back on top?” asks a reporter on a red carpet. Deborah, who has reclaimed her diva status, not-so-humbly responds, “Yes.”

When Ava realizes she’s at the same event as Deborah, she’s informed by agent Jimmy LuSaque (co-creator Paul W. Downs, who was promoted to a series regular for season three) that Deborah has not just hired a new writer — she’s now employed two to replace Ava. Right when Ava’s ready to storm off as she grapples with the disappointment of being replaced, she ends up riding the elevator with Deborah herself.

Calling back to the first season, Ava finds herself on Deborah’s couch, asking for a chance to work alongside her old boss again — this time setting a few caveats: “No more jokes about my physical appearance.”

“Oh, come on! Those are grandfathered in,” scoffs Deborah. And she finds a loophole to torment Ava when it comes to her looks, asking her estate manager Josefina to read out texts with insults. “Ava, do you need me to give your hair CPR? Because it it limp and lifeless,” she deadpans while reciting the text as Deborah guffaws.

The trailer also previews guest appearances from Tony Goldwyn and Succession actor J. Smith-Cameron.

Season three of the Emmy-winning series airs Thursday, May 2. HBO Max will deliver two episodes per week through May 23, with the finale on May 30. Downs, Lucia Aniello and Jen Statsky are the co-creators and showrunners.
