HBO’s “The Deuce” is returning for one last season on September 9th. The network confirmed the premiere date for fans of the show and announced that “Ballers” will return on August 25th. If you’re in the mood for a drama, the limited series “Our Boys” is scheduled to release on August 12th. The network describes the series saying, “In the summer of 2014, three Jewish teenagers are kidnapped and murdered by Hamas militants. Israel is shocked, shaken and furious. Two days later, the burned body of a Palestinian teenager from eastern Jerusalem is found in a forest on the western outskirts of the city. In the ensuing days, an agent from the internal terror division of the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) investigates the murder, while the parents of the slain teenager begin their long and anguished journey toward justice and consolation.”
HBO subscribers can also look for the new season of “ROOM 104,” the anthology series created by Jay and Mark Duplass, on September 13th.
“The Deuce” is picking up in the 1980s, and the third season will feature eight-episodes. George Pelecanos and David Simon created the show, and the series follows the rise of pornography throughout the 1970s and 1980s. According to the network, “Season three of The Deuce brings us into the world of 1985, just as VHS overtakes film as the primary medium for porn production and distribution.” The network added, “The lure of the California sunshine, the city’s aggressive takeover of commercial sex properties in Times Square and the devastating impact of the AIDS epidemic mark the end of an era.”
Pelecanos, Simon, Nina K. Noble and James Franco produce the show, which stars James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal. The returning cast includes Margarita Levieva, Emily Meade, Lawrence Gilliard, Gene Goldman, Chris Coy, and Michael Rispoli. The Season 3 writers include David Simon, George Pelecanos, Carl Capotorto, Iturri Sosa, Will Ralston, Chris Yakaitis, and Stephani DeLuca., and the directors are Alex Hall, Susanna White, Tanya Hamilton, Roxann Dawson, and James Franco.
