High Maintenance follows Ben Sinclair’s The Guy, a chill weed dealer as he interacts with various customers across Brooklyn. The show has generally been a critical darling and season three received high praise. While new characters are introduced in almost every episode, season three pays special attention to The Guy and his journey through love and loss.
Created by Sinclair and Katja Blichfeld, the show started as a web series before making the jump to HBO.
The Season Three finale was an emotional powerhouse. The episode centered around a child receiving treatment for cancer. Sinclair wrote and directed the finale. Before the episode aired, Sinclair posted a kaleidoscopic teaser video to Instagram. He then wrote in the comments. “We live in a post-facts society. What one believes has trumped the truth of what is. But here’s the only thing that is for certain: If you’re reading this, you’re alive. Hey. You’re alive. Tonight’s season finale episode … is about just that. Trigger warning: It’s very emotional!
While not much is known about the fourth season yet, it will still most likely bring the tragedy, comedy, and introspection that the other seasons became known for. On a recent Movie Crush podcast episode before the Season 4 order, Sinclair said, “I feel like the show is not over yet. Even though we haven’t had an order yet, I have a feeling it’s not over so there’s stuff to look forward to.”
