The Kevin Hart action comedy series is set to return for a third season after setting records on the Roku streaming service.
Die Hart saw Kevin Hart living his dream of being an action hero in the hit comedy series that started as a launch title for the failed Quibi streaming service. The show found a new home at The Roku Channel, and much like Cobra Kai, it found new life as a success on a wider streaming platform. The show was renewed with a sequel season titled Die Hart 2: Die Harter. That season became a hit when it premiered on Roku, so prepare for season 3 which could very well follow with the title Die Hart with a Vengeance.
Deadline reports that Die Hart 2: Die Harter premiered to record numbers on The Roku Channel, which has led to a season 3 renewal. Season 2 became the No. 1 Roku Original TV series weekend premiere of all time by both unique views and streaming hour engagement. Hart released a statement that said, “Die Hart is one of my favorite projects to act in and produce. I am so excited to get back to set to shoot season three. My fans are the best and their reaction to season two fuels Hartbeat to keep raising the bar on this show. Watch out for what comes next, we are going bigger and better!!”
In Die Hart 2: Die Harter, Kevin would follow up Die Hart by attempting to solidify himself as an action legend when he developed a concept for a revolutionary action film where the action is unscripted and unexpected that Kevin himself won’t know what’s coming next. Unfortunately for Kevin, his myopic dream comes with an adventure into the unknown, and he soon finds himself as a target of an evil revenge plot that’s been orchestrated by someone from his past.
The series would feature special appearances from action stars making humorous turns into self-parody, which included actors such as John Travolta, Josh Hartnett, and John Cena. Surprisingly, Hart’s bestie and action star, Dwayne Johnson, has yet to make an appearance. Season 2 also featured Fast & Furious star Nathalie Emmanuel, comedy actor Ben Schwartz, and Paula Bell. There has yet to be any details released for season 3.
In Season 2, Hart would executive produce alongside Jeff Clanagan, Candice Wilson Cherry, Bryan Smiley, Thai Randolph, Mike Stein, Luke Kelly-Clyne, Kevin Healey, Ty Walker, Tripper Clancy, and Eric Appel.
