HBO will be keeping one of its signature stars around for a while longer, with the news that it has renewed the Sarah Jessica Parker comedy “Divorce” for a third season.
“Production on the third season will begin in early 2019,” Variety reports. “The new installment of the series will consist of six episodes. Season 1 was 10 episodes, while Season 2 had eight. In addition, Liz Tuccillo will join the series as showrunner and executive producer, taking over for Jenny Bicks. Tuccillo is now the third showrunner on the series, with Paul Simms having served as showrunner on Season 1.”
Parker previously starred on “Sex and the City,” a show that ran for six seasons on HBO, from 1998 to 2004, and is credited with helping to forge the pay-cable channel’s modern identity as a bastion of quality TV programs.
Her current series, in which she stars opposite Thomas Haden Church, tells the story of a couple going through a long divorce. The series also stars Molly Shannon, Talia Balsam, Tracy Letts, Sterling Jerins, and Charlie Kilgore. Variety notes that Becki Newton is being elevated to series regular for Season 3.
