FX’s “Reservation Dogs” has been renewed for a third season, Nick Grad, president of original programming at the network, announced Thursday. The dramedy, which centers on a ragtag group of adolescents on an Oklahoma reservation, will return to Hulu in 2023.
The AFI Award and Peabody Award-winning show will conclude its second season on Sept. 28.
From co-creators and executive producers Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi, the groundbreaking series features an all-Indigenous creative team of series regulars, writers and directors — the first of its kind in the industry. Filmed on location in Okmulgee, Okla., the show follows the exploits of Elora Danan (Devery Jacobs), Bear Smallhill (D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai), Willie Jack (Paulina Alexis) and Cheese (Lane Factor) as they deal with grief, navigate their place in their hometown and figure out who they want to be.
“Reservation Dogs continues its remarkable run with critics, fans and awards all recognizing the singular brilliance of the series created by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi,” Grad said in a statement. “FX is proud to join with our partners at Hulu to order a third season featuring the amazing cast and all of the artists who deliver one of the most original, engaging and funny shows on television.”
Harjo added, “I couldn’t be more proud of this show that I created with my friend Taika Waititi. It was born out of a conversation in Taika’s kitchen and has now made its way into the lives of people across the world. The love for season 2 has been outstanding. Thank you to FX for ordering season 3, excited to bring you more laughter and love from the Rez. Ahoooo!”
