Black Monday is set to experience another crash after being recorded by Showtime for a third season.
Don Cheadle’s dark comedy has been renewed for another ten-episode run and will begin production next year for a premiere in 2021. The series is a co-production by Showtime and Sony Pictures Television.
The show’s second season was slightly interrupted by COVID-19. It was originally intended to air two consecutive new episodes to one a week before the March 22nd network change. The first six episodes ran through April 12, before the last four episodes aired June 28 through July 19.
The series follows a colorful crew of misfits who caused the worst stock market crash in Wall Street history. It shows Cheadle, who produces Andrew Rannells and Paul Scheer alongside Regina Hall.

Season two followed Dawn, played by Hall, and Blair, played by Rannell, as they took over the TBD group, while Cheadle’s Mo and Scheer’s Keith fled to Miami. On the way, Blair used a congressman, Dawn a college fund, Keith was used by the Leighman Brothers, and Tiff, played by Casey Wilson, used her georgina jeans capital for a hot new trend – skants. In the end, Dawn took the hit for Black Monday and Mo reigned as head of the newly minted The Mo Co.
Created by David Caspe and Jordan Cahan who are executive producers and showrunners, it is also produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
Cheadle told resourcingstrategies in the summer that there are a lot of stories to tell in a third season.
“Unfortunately, there is no shortage of stock market slumps, crashes and recessions that need to be discussed between then and now,” he said. “If we jump into the 90s, we can see [what] It would be fun to do with fashion and music – those are always such big elements of the show – so I think we can go anywhere. But who knows where the characters will go? Mo sits over his kingdom; He’s got spray paint on the wall. Blair has a dead Senator in the background of his life. [Keith Shankar]He is in prison. Dawn got all the success for the stock market crash. I think again, we were blown out of the water so who knows. “
