Prepare to say goodbye to to the 1980s this month, as Red Oaks returns for its final ever season.
Yes, as Stranger Things returns to Netflix, Amazon is bidding a fond farewell to its own slice of nostalgia, the coming-of-age comedy from Steven Soderbergh and David Gordon Green.
We return to the world of young tennis coach David (Craig Roberts) in the summer of 1987, where change is in the air at Red Oaks, the suburban New Jersey country club. David has now moved to New York City to chase his dream of becoming a filmmaker. Tennis Pro Nash (Ennis Esmer) follows a rumour the club is for sale and fears a new owner may replace the staff with their own hires. Wheeler and Misty have taken their relationship to the next level, but run into some daunting new obstacles. David’s divorced parents, Sam and Judy, are each finding new and unexplored passions. And hard-charging financier Getty (Paul Reiser) is not letting the fact that he’s in prison stop him from perfecting his backhand and trying to rescue his beloved country club
All 6 episodes of Season 3 will be available on the 20th October. Here’s the trailer:
Red Oaks renewed for third and final season
31st January 2017
Amazon has renewed Red Oaks for a third and final season.
The hit comedy, set in the 1980s, follows the growing pains of David, an aspiring filmmaker and his job as a tennis coach at the titular country club in New Jersey, home to a host of weird characters.
The show stars Craig Roberts (Submarine: The Fundamentals of Caregiving), with Paul Reiser (Mad About You) playing the disapproving rich dad of the love of David’s life, Skye (Alexandra Socha). The ensemble cast also includes Richard Kind (Inside Out) as David’s dad and Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing) as his mum, not to mention Oliver Cooper (Office Christmas Party) as his stoner friend, Wheeler, and Ennis Esmer (Blindspot) as fellow tennis coach (and eternal scene-stealer) Nash.
The series was created by Gregory Jacobs (Magic Mike XXL) and Joe Gangemi (Stonehearst Asylum), and is executive produced by Jacobs and Gangemi with Steven Soderbergh (The Knick) and David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express).
“Two seasons in and Amazon’s comedy remains that rare thing: a sitcom that doesn’t keep its characters in the same old routine,” we wrote of the programme’s second run, which premiered late last year. “One of Amazon Prime Video’s most underrated originals (on a streaming service full of underrated originals), Red Oaks Season 2 is fresh, funny and full of heart – fortunately, some things never change.”
Red Oaks creators Joe Gangemi and Greg Jacobs comment: “We’ve always hoped to send these characters off to their futures with a third and final season, so we’re thrilled that Amazon has given us the opportunity to do so.”
“Amazon Studios has been built by the risky, creative genius of shows like Mozart in the Jungle and Red Oaks,” adds Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy and Drama, Amazon Studios. “We are excited to see how the amazing creators, casts and crews top themselves next season.”
Season 3 of Red Oaks will begin production this year and is expected to premiere by the end of 2017 on Amazon Prime Video in the US and UK, with additional territories at a later date.
All 10 episodes of Red Oaks Season 1 and 2 are available to watch on Amazon Prime Video, as part of a £5.99 monthly subscription.
