Production is underway in Atlanta on Season 3 of Hap and Leonard, starring James Purefoy and Michael Kenneth Williams.
The six-part drama, which is scheduled to air on SundanceTV in early 2018, was inspired by Joe. R. Lansdale's novel, The Two-Bear Mambo.
Oscar-winner Louis Gossett Jr., actors Corbin Bernsen and Andrew Dice Clay, actress Laura Allen and musician Curtis Harding have joined the cast for the show's third season.
"When Florida Grange [played by Tiffany Mack] goes missing in the Klan-infested town of Grovetown, Hap and Leonard set out to find her. As the mystery unfolds, Hap and Leonard find themselves at odds with a cast of characters so tough they could chew the bumper off a pickup truck, including a possibly corrupt sheriff, and the leader of the Caucasian Knights," a synopsis said. "Set once again in East Texas, against an impending storm of biblical proportions, Hap and Leonard scramble to locate Florida before the Klan locates them. The boys learn that the good guys don't always win, and nobody beats Mother Nature."
Will they overcome their differences?
"I'm beyond thrilled to be joining the Hap and Leonard family—especially getting the opportunity to work with Michael Kenneth Williams again, whom I consider a son. It's now come full circle," Gossett Jr. said in a statement.
"I can't wait to roll up my pants and dredge through this rollercoaster of a season with the likes of Hap and Leonard. I just love this show!" Clay added.
"I'm thrilled to join this gem of a show and superb cast that, like so many projects I've been associated with in the past, is like a fine wine... time to pop the cork and share with the world," Bernsen said.
