The streaming service hasn’t set a premiere date for the third season. “Deadbeat” was co-created by Cody Heller and Brett Konner (“Wilfred,” “The Inbetweeners”) is and exec produced by showrunner Dan Lagana. Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner and Sarah Esberg from Brad Pitt’s Plan B Entertainment are producers.
The half-hour comedy series stars Tyler Labine (“Tucker & Dale vs. Evil,” “Reaper”) as Kevin Pacalioglu, a hapless but gifted medium who will go to any lengths to help New York’s ghosts settle their unfinished business. Cast also includes Brandon T. Jackson (“Tropic Thunder”) as his best friend, Roofie, and Cat Deeley (“So You Think You Can Dance”) as a glamorous celebrity medium who is Pacalioglu’s nemesis.

“’Deadbeat’ is a uniquely imaginative and charming series,” said Craig Erwich, Hulu’s head of content. “We are very happy to bring it back for another hilarious season and look forward to sharing new ghostly stories.”
Guest stars in “Deadbeat” season two, which went live April 20, included James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Zach Levi and Finn Wittrock.
The deal continues Hulu’s relationship with Lionsgate. The studio’s other projects for the Internet TV company include original comedy “Casual” from Jason Reitman; and the first longform project from Freddie Wong and RocketJump, creators of YouTube phenomenon “Video Game High School.”
