‘Cake’ Season 3 Preview
In less than a year, Cake has taken FXX audiences by storm with its signature brand of short-form comedy. The first season aired from September to November of 2019, then a second season aired in March and April of 2020, with a special episode called “Thirsty” airing on May 28. Now the third season is premiering on Thursday, July 9 with back to back new episodes.
Described by FXX as “a handcrafted assortment of bite-sized content served up to viewers as a tasty treat for the mind,” Cake features “a diverse array of narratives from storytellers both new and established with eclectic points of view, the carefully curated half-hour showcase features both live-action and animated comedy programs of varied length that are equal parts thought-provoking, laugh-inducing, artistic, authentic and raw (not to mention, totally gif-able). There’s something for everyone and plenty to go around.”
When the show returns, the first two episodes of season three are titled “Cos and Effect,” which promises a “heroic dose of do-goodery,” and “Swipe Left,” which promises to offer “a postmodern deconstructionist love story, with a twist of kung fu troll goosing.”
Then on July 16, the episode titled “Mystery Loves Company” takes viewers to “business in the front, party in the back… woods” in what sounds like a possibly scary episode of the comedy showcase.
The press kit also teases shorts called “Odeon,” which is about a mysterious sci-fi world; “Dicktown,” a short about “Richardsville, NC (aka Dicktown to the locals) and its famous boy detective, John Hunchman”; The Places Where We Live, which is a collection of short stories “inspired by real people, places or events throughout the country, forming modern folklore about everyday situations and the things we take for granted”; “Troll,” which is a “series of therapy sessions as an actual troll struggles to make progress in his life in New York City”; and “Two Pink Doors,” a series of subversive comedy films that features “eight clowns, six tales, one shot, and two pink doors.”
Cake airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FXX.
