Black Monday has been officially renewed for season 3 at Showtime.

The series, starring Don Cheadle, Regina Hall, Andrew Rannels and Paul Scheer is about motley crew of underdogs causing the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. Cheadle, who was nominated for an Emmy this year for his role, is a producer on the series with Hall and Rannels.

The series was created showrunners and executive producers David Caspe  and Jordan Cahan. seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are also executive producers.

As explained by the network, “Season two followed Dawn (Hall) and Blair (Rannells) as they took over the TBD Group, while Mo (Cheadle) and Keith (Scheer) fled to Miami. Along the way, Blair used a congressman, Dawn used a college fund honcho, Keith got used by the Leighman Brothers and Tiff (Casey Wilson) used her Georgina Jeans capital on a hot new trend – skants! In the end, Dawn took the hit for Black Monday, and Mo reigned supreme as head of the newly minted The Mo Co. What lies in store for him, his band of underdogs and his enemies will all play out in season three..”

Black Monday is a Showtime/Sony Pictures Television co-production. Production will resume next year and the show is projected to debut season 3 next year as well.
