(FXX)

If you love anthologies that showcase talent in animation, storytelling and other multiple forms, 'Cake' is the series for you. The first season of the FXX show premiered on September 25, 2019, the second season premiered on March 5, 2020, and the third season is coming to you early July. The series is described as a dark comedy and is a culmination of anthologies in the form of short comedy. The network promises that Season 3 has "something for everyone and plenty to go around." Here is what we know of the upcoming Season 3 release of 'Cake':

Release date

'Cake' Season 3 will premiere on July 9.

Plot

The official synopsis reads, "Cake is a handcrafted assortment of bite-sized content served up to viewers as a tasty treat for the mind. Featuring a diverse array of narratives from storytellers both new and established, this carefully curated half-hour weekly showcase on FXX features both live-action and animated comedy programs of varying lengths that are equal parts thought-provoking, laugh-inducing, artistic, authentic and raw (not to mention, totally gif-able!)."

The series consists of 30-minute episodes "for the mind" as the network says and with its unique way of delivering dark comedy, it has gained some intense traction. Meant to be weird (as fans call it) in its authenticity, we expect Season 3 episodes to be just as boundary-pushing as the previous two seasons.
