Stan announced its multi-award-winning comedy-drama series Ramy has been renewed for a third season, set to premiere only on Stan at a date still to be announced.
Created by and starring comedian Ramy Youssef, who received his first ever Golden Globe Award last year for his lead performance in the hit series, Ramy offers an insightful and hilarious glimpse into the life of a first generation Egyptian-American Muslim living in a politically-divided New Jersey neighbourhood. Throughout the dramedy, Ramy finds himself on a spiritual journey to understand what it means to be a good person – which is no small task when you're being pulled between traditional Muslim teachings which state that life is a constant test, friends who think life is full of endless possibilities, and a God who's always watching.
Two-time Academy Award winner Mahershala Ali (Green Book, Moonlight) featured in the comedy's second season, with the series also starring Hiam Abbass, Amr Waked, Laith Nakli, May Calamawy, Dave Merheje, Mohammed Amer and Steve Way.
Ramy is written, executive produced and created by Youssef, executive produced by A24's Ravi Nandan, co-creators Katcher and Welch, Carmichael and Chris Storer, and produced by A24.
