Hap and Leonard season 3 is going strong on SundanceTV.
Appropriately enough, Hap and Leonard Season 3 is based on the third book in the series from celebrated crime and horror author Joe R. Lansdale, The Two-Bear Mambo. Season two was subtitled Mucho Mojo after the second book in the series. Season one was based on the first book, Savage Season. You should read Joe R. Lansdale’s books, by the way. Among other things, his work is behind great movies like Bubba Ho-Tep and Cold in July, the latter of which was directed by Hap and Leonard executive producer Jim Mickle.
Here’s the official synopsis of Hap and Leonard Season 3 – Two-Bear Mambo:
Set once again in East Texas just before Christmas of 1989, Hap and Leonard scramble to locate Florida Grange, who has gone missing in the Klan-infested town of Grovetown. Once again at the center of an impending storm of Biblical proportion, Hap and Leonard find themselves at odds with a cast of characters so tough they could chew the bumper off a pickup truck, including a possibly corrupt sheriff, and the leader of the Caucasian Knights. The boys learn that the good guys don’t always win, and nobody beats Mother Nature.
This season’s new cast includes Louis Gossett Jr., Corbin Bernsen, and Andrew Dice Clay.
