On the heels of a strong Season 2 premiere, Hulu has picked up a 13-episode third season of comedy series Casual from Jason Reitman and creator Zander Lehmann, for premiere in 2017. In addition, Hulu has signed Reitman to a first-look deal for all television related projects, its first development deal of this kind.
Casual season two follows Alex (Tommy Dewey), Valerie (Michaela Watkins), and Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) after a season full of disastrous dates and their parents wedding, trying to rebuild their lives outside the home. But new friends, business partners, boyfriends and girlfriends can only do so much to distract them from a shared and recurring history of dysfunction.
“Critics and fans have embraced Casual as a distinctive, funny quality series thanks to the incredible talent of the creative team and the cast,” said Lionsgate Television Group Chairman Kevin Beggs. “We are pleased to continue our partnership with Hulu on this Golden Globe-nominated comedy series, and excited to continue to tell the stories of this offbeat family for a third season.”
Casual is produced by Lionsgate TV. Reitman and Lehmann executive produce with Helen Estabrook and Liz Tigelaar.
