Hacks season 2 returns to HBO Max with Jean Smart and Hannah Einbinder 

In a few weeks, the critically acclaimed HBO comedy will return, with stand-up great Deborah Vance (Jean Smart) and up-and-coming writer Ava Daniels (Hannah Einbinder) embarking on a cross-country tour.

We're anticipating a slew of snide jokes along the road.

The women hit the road in Season 2 to work on Deborah's new act.

HBO Max has set the Hacks season 2 release date for Thursday, May 12. 

Season 2 consists of eight episodes and two will drop every week, over the course of four weeks. 

The first teaser trailer for Hacks is utter mayhem. Deborah throws objects at Ava in the preview, which is set to Mama Cass' "Make Your Own Kind of Music."

The cast of Hacks season 2 is led by Jean Smart as Deborah Vance and Hannah Einbinder as Ava Daniels
