Hulu has ordered a 10-episode third season of its Peabody Award-winning comedy series Ramy, starring Ramy Youssef, from The Carmichael Show creators Jerrod Carmichael and Ari Katcher, Ryan Welch and studio A24.
The series, which launched its second season May 29, follows first-generation, Egyptian-American Ramy Hassan (Youssef) who is on a spiritual journey in his politically divided New Jersey neighborhood. Ramy brings a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like to be caught between a religious community who believes life is a moral test, and a millennial generation that doubts an afterlife even exists. In the second season, Ramy delves further into his spiritual journey, finding a new Muslim community and embracing a deeper commitment to his faith.
