Well it’s not all bad news for series on HBO Max. The streamer and CBC have renewed the Peabody Award-winning comedy series SORT OF for a third season. The Max Original comedy series is a co-production with CBC and Sphere Media.
Created by Bilal Baig and Fab Filippo, the second season of the critically acclaimed comedy about a gender fluid millennial in transition in every aspect of their life debuted December 1 on HBO Max, following the Canadian premiere on CBC/CBC Gem in November, and will conclude with the final two episodes of the season on December 22. A coming-of-age story, SORT OF exposes the labels we once poured ourselves into as no longer applicable… to anyone.
Called “easy to love” by Rolling Stone, season two of SORT OF made the publication’s list of the 20 Best TV Shows of 2022 and debuted in the US to another round of strong acclaim, including “still great” by NPR and “as big-hearted and introspective as its wonderful predecessor” by TIME. With a Gotham Award nomination for the first season, Baig has also been recognized as one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People in Business and TIME’s Next Generation Leaders.
