Hulu announced they have renewed the critically acclaimed comedy series “Ramy” for a third season.

Starring Ramy Youssef, who won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy at last year’s ceremony, the show will return for 10 episodes. The second season debuted on Hulu on May 29, and is currently in the hunt for Emmy attention, currently ranked #11 in Best Comedy Series on the AwardsCircuit’s official Emmy Predictions for 2020. During the second season, Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali was a featured player and could be a contender in Guest Actor in a Comedy Series.

The series follows a first-generation Egyptian-American Ramy Hassan (played by Ramy Youssef), who is on a spiritual journey in his politically divided New Jersey neighborhood.

The series also stars Hiam Abbass, Amr Waked, Laith Nakli, May Calamawy, Dave Merheje, Mohammed Amer, and Steve Way.

Written, executive produced, and created by Youssef himself, A24’s Ravi Nandan also serves as executive producer, along with co-creators Ari Katcher, Ryan Welch, Jerrod Carmichael, and Chris Storer. The show is also produced by A24, who distributed the Oscar-winning “Moonlight” from Barry Jenkins.

Hulu has shared that “Ramy” is just one of their examples of “continued success and interest in elevating powerful and relevant stories about the human experience from breakthrough creators.”

The third season of the Peabody Award-winning series joins Hulu’s critically acclaimed slate of original content including “Little Fires Everywhere” with Kerry Washington, “Normal People” with Daisy Edgar-Jones, “The Great” with Elle Fanning and Nicholas Hoult, “Shrill” with Aidy Bryant, and “Pen15” with Maya Erskine. Hulu is also set to launch the upcoming series “Woke” starring Lamorne Morris (FOX’s “New Girl“) and director Maurice Marable.

All the seasons of “Ramy” are currently streaming on Hulu. You can check out the second season trailer down below.
