A comedy series that just aired its season finale will be returning for another season. Following the March 17 season three finale of “High Maintenance,” HBO announced it has renewed the pot-themed show for a fourth season.
The series is created by Katja Blichfeld, the Emmy-winning casting director of “30 Rock,” and Ben Sinclair (“Home Again,” “Sisters”). The show uses The Guy, a marijuana dealer played by Sinclair, to tell a variety of stories about New York lives.
“‘High Maintenance’ paints a uniquely authentic portrait of New York with empathy and insight, telling amusing, surprising, sometimes moving and always poignant tales of denizens who are usually just faces on the crowded sidewalks of Brooklyn,” HBO says in its announcement.
The announcement notes that The New York Times has called the show “wistful, often hilarious and always tender” with “so much compassion,” while Vanity Fair praised the show for its ability to “gaze at its neighbors with frank curiosity, noticing quirks of fashion and gaps in opportunity,” and Entertainment Weekly described it as a “gem” with “episodes that are both timely and timeless.”
The series is executive produced by Katja Blichfeld, Ben Sinclair and Russell Gregory.
