Showtime has greenlit black comedy “Black Monday” for a third season with an an order for 10 new episodes. Debuting in January 2019, the series stars Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells, Regina Hall and Paul Scheer, and follows the employees of second-tier Wall Street trading firm the Jammer Group in the year leading up to “Black Monday”, the day when international stock markets crashed in 1987.
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.
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (“Good Boys,” “The Boys”) executive produce. “Black Monday” is a co-production between Showtime and Sony Pictures Television.
