Pete Holmes and Crashing are coming back to HBO. The third season got a trailer and a confirmation that Season 3 will premiere this January. While there is no specific date for the release, the trailer will get fans excited for a new season.
Last February, HBO announced that Crashing and High Maintenance would be coming back for third seasons. HBO also announced last month a new stand-up special from Holmes called Dirty Clean, which will air December 15.
Crashing follows a fictionalized version of Holmes as he tries to break into the New York stand-up comedy scene after his wife cheats on him. The trailer shows that Season 3 will focus on the comedian dealing with newfound fame and a new relationship. The series, from executive producer Judd Apatow, features guest cameos from stand-up comedy all-stars and this new season will be no different. The trailer shows appearances by John Mulaney, Amy Schumer, Colin Quinn, Ray Romano, and Chris Gethard. The show also features recurring characters played by Artie Lange and Jamie Lee.
The first two seasons of the show have been well-reviewed by critics. The consensus by Rotten Tomatoes says of the show, “The refreshingly goofy Crashing embraces a measured positivity and an overall sweetness that sets it apart from its more sardonic contemporaries.” The trailer focuses on silly situations like debating whether a jacket looks good and Holmes’s mom hearing him having sex. Gasp.
The trailer premiered at the Vulture Festival in Los Angeles. Watch the full trailer here:
