Hulu has finally released the official Ramy Season 3 trailer for the upcoming return of the acclaimed comedy starring Golden Globe winner Ramy Youssef. It will be available for streaming on September 30 with ten new episodes.
The video highlights Ramy’s struggle with his faith as other members of the Hassan family also deal with their own personal problems. It also gives us a preview of supermodel Bella Hadid’s acting debut role.
Ramy is written, directed, and executive produced by Youssef, who is also a co-creator with Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch. It follows a first-generation Egyptian-American who is on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood.
“It continues to bring a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like to be caught between a religious community who believes life is a moral test, and a millennial generation that doubts an afterlife even exists,” reads the synopsis. “In the third season, his family is forced to confront having lived a life dedicated to worldly concerns — and in some cases, lies — while Ramy all but abandons his spiritual journey, instead dedicating himself to him and his uncle’s diamond business.”
Joining Youssef in the series are Mohammed Amer (Crashing), Hiam Abbass (Blade Runner 2049), Amr Waked (Lucy), May Calamawy (The Long Road Home), Dave Merheje (We Are Disorderly), Laith Nakli (24: Legacy) and Steve Way. Season 2 also featured Oscar winner Mahershala Ali in a guest-starring role as Sheikh Ali.
The series is executive produced by Katcher, Welch, Adel Kamal, Christopher Storer, Tyson Bidner, Amir Sulaiman, Kate Thulin, and Jerrod Carmichael with A24 producing.
Ramy Seasons 1 & 2 are now available for streaming on Hulu. The first season earned Youssef a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy.
