Comedy-drama show Hacks burst onto screens in the US almost a year ago, and won instant critical acclaim.


The Emmy and Golden Globe winning series stars Jean Smart (Watchmen, Mare of Easttown) as Deborah Vance, a legendary Las Vegas comedian who, in order to maintain relevance, is teamed up with young out-of-work comedy writer Ava Daniels (Hannah Einbinder).

Until now, UK audiences have been left out in the cold, unable to watch the hit show and find out what all the fuss is about - until now.

With the series finally available to watch in the UK, read on for everything you need to know about how to watch Hacks.

What is Hacks about?

Hacks tells the story of a dark mentorship that forms between Deborah Vance (Smart), a legendary Las Vegas comedian, and an entitled, outcast 25-year-old (Einbinder). Vance is struggling for relevance, while Einbinder is out of work as a comedy writer because of an insensitive tweet.

The pair reluctantly team up, but at first it certainly doesn't seem to be a match made in heaven.

Will there be a Hacks season 2?

Hacks was renewed for season 2 back in June 2021, meaning that when you get to the end of your binge you don't have to worry about whether you'll see Deborah and Ava again.

We don't yet have a release date for the second season, but we do have casting news - legendary actresses Laurie Metcalf, Martha Kelly, Ming-Na Wen and Margaret Cho have all joined the fray following the first season's phenomenal success.
