Sundance TV is sticking with the Southern-set Hap And Leonard for another season, as the network announced yesterday that it will adapt another book in the series by Joe R. Lansdale about the eponymous best friends played by James Purefoy and Michael K. Williams. The next installment will cover the novelThe Two-Bear Mambo, in which the duo investigates the disappearance of lawyer Florida Grange (Tiffany Mack).
“We’re beyond psyched to bring the boys back for a third helping of mayhem. It’s a show that doesn’t fold up neatly into one defined box and that’s what makes it special, so thanks to SundanceTV for believing in it and championing it from day one,” executive producer Jim Mickle says in a statement. “We also owe a big thank you to the fans for the phenomenal response so far.” The six-episode run will air sometime in 2018.
