HBO’s Tracey Ullman’s Show kicks off its third season on Friday, September 28, 2018 at midnight. The Emmy-nominated series’ third season will consist of six half-hour episodes starring Ullman as a variety of characters including German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Dame Judi Dench. Season three will also find her channeling British Prime Minister Theresa May and French First Lady Brigitte Macron.

The series is executive produced by Ullman and Gareth Edwards, with Caroline Norris producing.

The Plot: “More topical than ever before, Tracey Ullman’s Show satirizes today’s culture, including television’s latest obsession with strong but messy female characters, the future possibilities for smart-home devices, life in a post-Brexit world and the absurdity of the 24-hour news cycle.”
