'Easy' season 3: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything you need to know about Netflix's dramedy
They say third time's a charm, but when it comes to Netflix's 'Easy,' it has been a proper banger since day one. And for good reason too, because while anthology might be the new thing in horror, 'Easy' offers similar storytelling but instead of horror, the stories are about people meandering through their sometimes unusual, sometimes confusing sex lives while trying to make sense out of their lives and relationships.
'Easy' is an anthology series created by Joe Swanberg, "that explores diverse Chicago characters as they fumble through the modern maze of love, sex, technology and culture," reveals the official synopsis of the show. So far, each season has been strictly eight episodes each and were all written and directed by Swanberg. Seasons 1 and 2 also bragged of a star-studded cast with familiar faces from the entertainment industry hopping onboard to play both regulars and guest stars. Think along the lines of Orlando Bloom, Dave Franco, Emily Ratajkowski, Michael Chernus, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Aya Cash, Jane Adams, Elizabeth Reaser, Evan Jonigkeit and more.
With the anthology dramedy's season 1 winning hearts all over ever since its premiere in 2016, fans have had a long wait to endure after the second season's finale, which aired back in December 2017. But worry not, for the wait is almost over, and here we are - just a couple of weeks short of viewing the sex-positive characters' many sexcapades and indulgences, once season 3 arrives on the streaming platform on May 10, 2019.
American independent film director, producer, writer, and actor Joe Swanberg has been the man behind the ridiculously appropriate representation of the modern human's varied sexual preferences, that is 'Easy'. Apart from being credited with launching the careers of Lena Dunham, Greta Gerwig, and The Duplass Brothers, Swanberg is also lauded critically for his principle of improvisation, which is shown brilliantly through his micro-budgets - something that has labeled him quite the prominent figure in the mumblecore film movement.
While big names like Orlando Bloom, Malin Ackerman, Jake Johnson, Hannibal Buress, Emily Ratajkowski and Rebecca Spence feature in the first two seasons, with season 3 of 'Easy', the series regulars set to make a comeback for a third time are Marc Maron, Dave Franco, Jane Adams, Zadie Beetz, Aya Cash, Michael Chernus, Kiersey Clemons, Eva Jonigkeit, Kate Micucci, Elizabeth Reaser and Jacqueline Toboni.
Sadly as of now, only a little teaser has been released for the upcoming season, but for those wondering about what the coming season entails, the past two seasons' trailers are a brilliant example to go by. We have the characters talking about opening up their marriage, and teens trying to get down and dirty as a parent walks into the room. There are even confused singles trying to discuss their love life with clueless toddlers while acquiring some sort of inexplicable enlightenment from the conversations, and of course - the classic - older people trying to find love in this new era of millennial entertainment. In short, the trailers portray beautifully just why 'Easy' was such an immediate hit with the audience and the first two seasons scored a stellar 94 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
