‘Difficult People’ Renewed for Season 3 at Hulu

Hulu has picked up “Difficult People” for Season 3, Variety has learned. The 10-episode third season will premiere in 2017.

The series stars Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner as the titular people, a pair of best friends who live in New York City. Even in a city comprised almost entirely of difficult people, “Julie” and “Billy” (Klausner and Eichner) stand out: They don’t play as nice as society may prefer they do; awkwardness and jokes about Nazis ensue.

Julie and Billy are joined by Andrea Martin, playing Julie’s mother Marilyn, James Urbaniak as Julie’s boyfriend Arthur, and Cole Escola as despised coworker Matthew.

The second season of “Difficult People” bowed on Hulu on July 12. As with most streaming services, we don’t know exactly how many people are watching the series, though critical response remains enthusiastic. But unlike fellow streaming juggernauts Amazon and Netflix, Hulu doles out episodes once a week, in a more traditional fashion. (Incidentally, you can also buy both seasons on Amazon Video.)

“Difficult People,” from Universal Cable Prods., is executive produced by creator Klausner. Amy Poehler (Paper Kite Prods.), Dave Becky (3 Arts), Tony Hernandez (Jax Media), and Brooke Posch (Paper Kite Prods.) are also executive producers. Scott King is showrunner.
