What is The Righteous Gemstones season 3 release date? They have risen! That’s right, the worst family in the world (apart from the Roys, perhaps) is back to spread the word and cause chaos yet again.
The Righteous Gemstones is a comedy series that turns an eye to the weird and wild world of televangelism, all through the journey of one particularly successful family. The Gemstones, led by the fierce Dr Eli (John Goodman), are one of the most famous families around, but that doesn’t stop them from being completely dysfunctional and selfish.
But is there going to be a new season of the HBO Max TV series? Will we see the Gemstones again? Well, we’re here to answer your prayers with everything we know about The Righteous Gemstones season 3 release date, cast, plot, and more news.
The Righteous Gemstones season 3 release date
Praise the Lord, because The Righteous Gemstones season 3 is set to return on Sunday, June 18, 2023!
The series first came to the small screen in 2019 as an over-the-top comedy that received widely positive responses from critics and viewers alike.
The Righteous Gemstones season 3 cast
All of the Gemstone family are returning in season 3’s cast, alongside a few new faces that are set to pose a challenge.
Two new cast members this season are Kristen Johnston and The White Lotus‘ Steve Zahn. Since both have appeared in plenty of comedy shows and comedy movies over the years, we think they’ll fit right in.
Here’s The Righteous Gemstones season 3 cast list:
- Danny McBride as Jesse Gemstone
- John Goodman as Eli Gemstone
- Adam DeVine as Kelvin Gemstone
- Edi Patterson as Judy Gemstone
- Cassidy Freeman as Amber Gemstone
- Tony Cavalero as Keefe Chambers
- Skyler Gisondo as Gideon Gemstone
- Walton Goggins as Baby Billy Freeman
- Gregory Alan Williams as Martin Imari
- Tim Baltz as Benjamin Jason Barnes
- Dermot Mulroney as Rev John Wesley
- Jennifer Nettles as Aimee-Leigh Gemstone
- Kristen Johnston as May-May Montgomery
- Steve Zahn as Peter
What is The Righteous Gemstones season 3 about?
The Righteous Gemstones season 3 will see the televangelist family volley for the power of the Church and face-off against some violent pushback and new opposers.
In season 3, the Gemstone children get their wish: control of the Church. Things aren’t all puppies and rainbows, though, and leadership is harder than they assumed. Their luxury lifestyle may exact a heavy toll.
The last season saw the family patriarch, Dr Eli, face multiple death threats. Thankfully, he lived to see another season, though it appears that his spoilt children have somehow managed to gain the control of the Church they’ve so desperately craved.
That said, we don’t think they’re going to be entirely up to the challenge, and will likely find that power isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. Plus, with the likes of Steve Zahn joining the fray as a militia leader named Peter, we expect there will probably be plenty of threats to the Gemstone legacy.
The Righteous Gemstones season 3 trailer
Lucky for you, there is a teaser for The Righteous Gemstones season 3, which gives us a glimpse of some petty family banter and a fanatic group fighting against the Gemstones.
Monster trucks, “Jesus Daddies”, and violent intimidation tactics abound in the teaser for the new season. It also looks as if Jesse is trying to climb his way to the top and knock his siblings out of power (though Eli doesn’t look too pleased about the situation either way).
