Currently poised at no.1 on the free streaming network, Sony Crackle's gripping tech drama, 'StartUp' is all set to return with its 10-episode third season on Thursday, November 1. While announcing the premiere date for the original scripted programme, however, the ad-supported service also added a bit of a teaser for fans of the series - confirming a sneak peek into the season that will be available via the Sony Crackle app on Amazon devices.

The teasers will start rolling out from Monday, October 22 onwards and if the official description is any indication, fans of the series need to be prepared for some high-octane drama. According to the press release, the upcoming season shines the limelight on friends who will "fighting it out for power and will be threatened by what might be the most dangerous criminal organization of all: the US Government."

Created and written by Ben Ketai (of fame 'Chosen', 'The Forest'), who also serves as executive producer and director for 'StartUp', the third season of the tech-infused thriller, however, will see a mix of old and new faces including academy award-winning actor Mira Sorvino. Known for her performance in Woody Allen's 'Mighty Aphrodite', the 50-year-old actress is going to be guest starring as NSA Agent Rebecca Stroud who has come to investigate ArakNet, a darknet prototype.

In addition to Sorvino, 'StartUp' boasts some other A-listers for the third season's ensemble cast as well, adding names such as Zachary Knighton (of 'Santa Clarita Diet'), Tyler Labine ('Deadbeat', 'Tucker and Dale vs. Evil') and Jason Kravits (from 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'). While fans are treated to new plotlines and character arcs, the show's returning cast - including series star Adam Brody, Ron Perlman, Edi Gathegi, Otmara Marrero and Addison Timlin - will be reprising their roles for the much-anticipated season. 

One of the highlights about 'StartUp' has been its focus on timely and topical issues and looks like the trend will continue in the third season of the series as well. Dishing about the engaging drama and what happens in the next chapter, however, show creator Ketai had some exciting news to share. 



 

“This past season was exciting, with nods to relevant and timely topics like corporatization of the Internet, Bitcoin and the darknet that made for some great storytelling. But the series works because those headlines are juxtaposed with the personal stories of our characters and how the cost of ambition impacts their lives and the lives of those around them," he said adding, "We will take that narrative even further in this next chapter and look forward to bringing the StartUp family back together again in the new year.”
