Get Shorty Season 3: Release Date, Cast, Trailer, Spoilers & News

Get Shorty is created by Davey Holmes. It is based on 1990 Elmore Leonard novel of the same title that premiered on August 13, 2017 on Epix. Chris O’Dowd has found a home here as the mobster with a lot more on the ball than your everyday hit-man. The rest of the cast is perfect, along with the cinematography, directing, and locations.

“Get Shorty is our most successful original scripted series to date and continues to deliver phenomenal performances,” Mark Greenberg, Epix’s President and CEO said following the show’s renewal. “We are thrilled to be working again with MGM Television, Davey Holmes, Chris O’Dowd, Ray Romano and the Get Shorty team.”

Get Shorty Season 2 Cast: Who’s in it?

Get Shorty‘s Season 2 call sheet is getting longer. The Epix dark comedy has added Steven Weber (Wings) and Andrew Leeds (Bones) to the cast in recurring roles, TVLine has learned exclusively. Weber will play Lawrence Budd, an impossibly powerful film producer in Hollywood who commutes via helicopter and landscapes his yard with fully grown trees. A medical condition has left him hairless, so he glues on a wig and eyebrows. He collaborates in a film with Miles (Chris O’Dowd) and Rick (Ray Romano). Leeds, meanwhile, will portray FBI special agent Ken Stevenson, the partner of Felicity Huffman’s Agent Dillard. Together, they manage Rick as their CI, and seek to bring down a drug cartel. Like Dillard, Stevenson is an expert at being supportive and upbeat while forcing people to do unsavory things.

The second season on Epix will also star Sarah Stiles, Sean Bridgers, Carolyn Dodd, Lidia Porto, Goya Robles, Megan Stevenson and Lucy Walters.

Get Shorty Season 2 Plot: What is it about?

Loosely adapted from the 1990 Elmore Leonard novel, Get Shorty tells the story of career criminal Miles Daly (Chris O’Dowd), who tries to go clean by making a movie with B-list Hollywood producer Rick Moreweather (Ray Romano). By the time season 2 rolls around, however, the relationship between Miles and Rick is starting to splinter. Rick agrees to wear a wire to aid the FBI’s investigation into the criminal organization Miles came from. Huffman will play Clara Dillard, the FBI special agent in charge of the investigation. She’s described as “hippie therapist meets J. Edgar Hoover.”

Get Shorty Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?

The comedy, which loosely is based on the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name, was renewed for a 10-episode sophomore season. On August 23, 2017, the series was renewed for a second season which premiered on August 12, 2018. There is little room for speculation when it comes to Epix’s shows since the channel doesn’t fall under the Nielson rating bracket. However, the response towards the series has been generally favourable so far and it’s likely that Get Shorty will return for a season 3. We will update this section whenever there is news from the channel.

  • First off I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.

    I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!

  • Please, please we must have a season 3,4,5…of Get Shorty…or someone’s “package” may end up in a jar of pickle juice…Its the Breaking Bad of Hollywoid and just like that show, needed Netflix to get a little sampling…Berlin Station is also great…but Get Shorty should by have a loooong epix contract!
