‘Black Monday’ Renewed For Season 3 By Showtime
Showtime has renewed Don Cheadle fronted series ‘Black Monday‘ for a 3rd season the US broadcaster has announced.
‘Black Monday’ tells the story of 19th October 1987, the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. The comedy follows a motley crew of outsiders who took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine and the glass ceiling. Friends became enemies, traders became traitors, and two people became dead.
Alongside Cheadle, the series stars two-time Tony Award nominee and Grammy winner Andrew Rannells (‘Girls’) and Regina Hall (‘Little’, ‘Girls Trip’), who serve as producers, and Paul Scheer (‘Veep’).
The second season, which premieres in November in the UK, focuses on the aftermath of season one: As we begin, Dawn (Hall) and Blair (Rannells) are the bosses now, quickly learning that heavy is the head that wears the crown, especially when that head is constantly looking over its shoulder for Mo, who’s on the run with Keith (Scheer). Who will go down for the crash? Who will go down for the murders? Who will go down for fleecing Mo?
Season 2 guest stars include Tuc Watkins (‘The Boys In the Band’) as Congressman Harris, a leading voice of the moral majority; June Diane Raphael (‘Grace and Frankie’) as his ultra-conservative wife, Corkie; Dulé Hill (‘Suits’) as Marcus Wainwright III, president of the African-American Scholarship Fund; and Patrick Fabian (‘Better Call Saul’) as New York Governor Putnam. Recurring guest stars include Yassir Lester (‘Making History’), Ken Marino (‘Wet Hot American Summer’), Horatio Sanz (‘Glow’) and Casey Wilson (‘Mrs. Fletcher’, ‘Happy Endings’).
The series is created by showrunners and executive producers David Caspe (‘Happy Endings’) and Jordan Cahan (‘My Best Friend’s Girl’). Emmy nominees Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (‘Good Boys’, ‘The Boys’) executive produce. The comedy, which is a co-production between Showtime and Sony Pictures Television, will resume production on 10 episodes next year for a 2021 debut on the US network.
‘Black Monday‘ Season 2 premieres Tuesday, 3rd November 2020 at 9pm on Sky Comedy in the UK.
