The Reservation Dogs are set to return for another season.
The critically acclaimed FX series has been renewed for a third season. The series hails from Sterlin Harjo, who co-created the series alongside Taika Waititi. It focuses on four Indigenous teenagers – Elora Danan played by Devery Jacobs, Bear Smallhill played by D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai, Willie Jack played by Paulina Alexis, and Cheese played by Lane Factor – and their lives within rural Oklahoma.
FX’s President of Original Programming, Nick Grad, expressed excitement over getting the chance to bring Reservation Dogs for yet another season. He went on to call it one of the most “original, engaging, and funny shows” currently airing on television.
“Reservation Dogs continues its remarkable run with critics, fans, and awards all recognizing the singular brilliance of the series created by Sterlin Harjo and Taika Waititi. FX is proud to join with our partners at Hulu to order a third season featuring the amazing cast and all of the artists who deliver one of the most original, engaging, and funny shows on television.”Nick Grad, President, Original Programming, FX.
While Harjo, who serves as the showrunner, showcased his disbelief over an idea talked about with Waititi becoming such a highly loved series.
“I couldn’t be more proud of this show that I created with my friend Taika Waititi. It was born out of a conversation in Taika’s kitchen and has now made its way into the lives of people across the world. The love for season 2 has been outstanding. Thank you to FX for ordering season 3, excited to bring you more laughter and love from the Rez. Ahoooo!”Sterlin Harjo
