Simon confirmed in September that The Deuce was renewed for a third and final season.
"We're always conjuring the last scene before we write the first. So much the better when we work for people who allow us to consistently plan, arc and execute as intended. Thanks, @HBO, for the third and final season renewal and the chance for #thedeuce to tell its full story," he wrote on Twitter.
James Franco, Lisa Kudrow and Tatiana Maslany are a few actors who will have you seeing double on the small screen.
The Deuce explores the sex industry in 1970s and 1980s New York. Franco confirmed in an interview with Collider in September 2017 that the show was always meant to be three seasons.
"It gives it this perfectly encapsulated, very concise, economical power punch feeling to it," the actor said. "From the beginning, the plan was to cover 14 years ... The third season will be '84-'85 when everything imploded and the old 42nd Street was shut down by Mayor [Ed] Koch."
