‘StartUp’ Renewed for Season 3 at Crackle

StartUp” has been renewed for a ten-episode third season at CrackleVariety has learned.

“We are excited to open the writers’ room and partner with Crackle for season three of StartUp,” said creator Ben Ketai. “This past season was exciting with nods to relevant and timely topics like corporatization of the internet, Bitcoin and the darknet that made for some great storytelling. But the series works because those headlines are juxtaposed with the personal stories of our characters and how the cost of ambition impacts their lives and the lives of those around them. We will take that narrative even further in this next chapter and look forward to bringing the StartUp family back together again in the new year.”

The second season of the show launched on Sept. 28 and is currently the number one title on Crackle. In the most recent season of “StartUp,” the narrative went beyond the world of cryptocurrency and pulled the curtain back on the intersection between technology and the digital black market through a darknet prototype called Araknet. Season 2 stars Adam Brody and Ron Perlman, who are also producers, along with Martin Freeman, Edi Gathegi, Otmara Marrero, and Addison Timlin.

“Thanks to Ben Ketai for his vision and to our stellar ensemble cast, Martin, Adam, Ron, Edi, Otmara and Addison, whose tremendous performances gave this series the kind of weight and edge that viewers have come to expect from a Crackle original,” said Eric Berger, general manager of Crackle and executive vice president and chief digital officer at Sony Pictures Television Networks. “We are excited to continue the story in season three and expect that Ben and company will take us on another entertaining and wild ride.”

“StartUp” is produced by Critical Content and Hollywood Gang Productions. Gianni Nunnari, Shannon Gaulding, Tom Forman, Andrew Marcus, Ray Ricord, and Anne Clements all serve as executive producers. The series is created and written by Ketai, who also serves as executive producer and director.
