Jean Smart makes “the Ellen” in the Dynamic Hacks season 2 trailer

Who is ready for Hacks‘ Encore?

On April 26, HBO Max released the trailer for season two of the critically acclaimed comedy, and boy, does it have it all: Laurie Metcalf as tour manager named Weed, exploding kombucha, an adorable puppy and Deborah Vance (Jean Smart) makes “the Ellen.”

And while it may seem like a strange list to read, it actually makes complete sense when you realize that the new season follows Deborah as she sets off with her Gen-Z assistant Ava (Hannah Einbinder) in hopes of reviving her comedy career.

“I know I bombed at my show,” Deborah tells her team at the start of the trailer. “This tour is about back to basics.”

However, there is nothing fundamental about Deborah, who chooses to travel the country in a luxury bus. And as a co-creator Paul W. Downs– who also plays Deborah’s manager Jimmy – previously told E! News, season two will take the mentor and mentee “out of their comfort zone.”
