Season three of the critically acclaimed Max Original comedy series, THE OTHER TWO, debuts with two episodes Thursday, May 4 on HBO Max. The ten-episode season is created, written, directed, and executive produced by Emmy® nominated former “Saturday Night Live” co-head writers Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider.
After comparing themselves for years to their much-younger pop star brother, ChaseDreams (Case Walker), who is now a full adult, and their talk-show host mother (Molly Shannon), who’s now more powerful than she could have ever imagined, Brooke and Cary (Heléne Yorke and Drew Tarver) are finally standing on their own two feet — fully “successful” in their own right! And yet, they somehow find themselves comparing themselves to new people once again?
Season 3 cast: The series stars Drew Tarver (Cary), Heléne Yorke (Brooke), Critics Choice Nominee Molly Shannon (Pat), Ken Marino (Streeter), and Case Walker (Chase); the recurring cast includes Josh Segarra (Lance), Wanda Sykes (Shuli) and Brandon Scott Jones (Curtis).

New guest stars include Simu Liu, Fin Argus, Ann Dowd, Edie Falco, Ben Platt, Dylan O’Brien, Lukas Gage, Kiernan Shipka, Lawrence O’Donnell, Spike Einbinder, Andrea Boehlke, and Dana Delaney.
Season two was nominated for Best Comedy Series by the Critics Choice Awards and Washington Post hailed it as “the funniest show on TV.” Entertainment Weekly called it a “searing showbiz satire with blithe brilliance” and Variety praised it for “setting the new standard for TV comedy right now” with its “sharpness” and “soulfulness.”
