In the penultimate episode, entitled, “Pie a la Mojo,” Hap (Purefoy) and Leonard (Williams) go undercover as carnival workers to investigate the endless supply of suspects. With the cops on their heels, they seek help from an unexpected ally to stop the culprit before another tragedy strikes.
Sundance.tv is also heading back to Hap and Leonard’s teenage years in the exclusive digital release of two short stories from Joe R. Lansdale’s most recent book Hap and Leonard: Blood and Lemonade. The first story, “Not Our Kind,” is available now. The second story, “In the River of the Dead,” will first be available to those subscribed to the “Hap and Leonard” newsletter and doled out in weekly chapters throughout the run of the “Hap and Leonard: Mucho Mojo” season.
Inspired by the second book in the famed series by Joe R. Lansdale, “Hap and Leonard” follows two lifelong best friends — Hap Collins and Leonard Pine – as they find themselves in mucho-trouble, caught in the middle of a murder mystery with more twists and turns than an East Texas highway. Set in the late 1980s, the story begins with a skeleton, Trudy’s missing ashes, a literal pissing match with a neighborhood drug dealer and a piece of MeMaw’s famous pie.
Rounding out the cast in this six-episode anthology series are Brian Dennehy (“Death of a Salesman,” “First Blood”) Irma P. Hall (“A Family Thing,” “Soul Food”), Dohn Norwood (“All the Way,” “Hell on Wheels”), Tiffany Mack (Wicked Love, “iZombie”) and Cranston Johnson (“Atlanta,” Find a Way).
John Wirth (“Hell on Wheels,” “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) is showrunner and executive producer for the second season, and Jim Mickle, Nick Damici, Jeremy Platt, Linda Moran and Nick Shumaker return as executive producers, along with co-executive producers Joe R. Lansdale and Lowell Northrop.
