HBO Canada goes back to Winnipeg for season 3 of Its comedy series Less Than Kind

HBO Canada is going back into the heart of Winterpeg for the third season of the quirky, half-hour original comedy series, Less Than Kind.

Opening with three back-to-back episodes on Sunday, January 15 at 8 p.m. ET/MT, the premiere will also include a special Memories of Maury featurette celebrating the late Maury Chaykin and his contributions to the series. Following its debut, new episodes premiere in their regular time slot, Sundays at 8:30 p.m. ET/MT on HBO Canada.

“The challenge for this season was to write a comedy and drama about a family recovering from sudden and tragic loss as we experienced with Maury. The result is Season 3 of Less Than Kind, a heartfelt story that approximately mirrors what we producers, writers and cast, were all going through in the weeks and months after Maury’s death. At its core, this season stays true to its original premise which is, to its strength, the tale about a deeply loving, but deeply dysfunctional family,” said Less Than Kind executive producer, writer and showrunner Mark McKinney.

The 13-episode season begins with the unexpected death of the family patriarch, Sam Blecher (Maury Chaykin), which leaves the family reeling as they struggle forward in a world without him. For son Sheldon (Jesse Camacho), the confusing currents of loss drive him away from the bedrock of his friends Miriam (Brooke Palsson) and Danny (Tyler Johnston) into the clutches of his high school wrestling team. Anne (Wendel Meldrum) struggles with her new life as a widow and the future of the imperilled family driving school. Josh (Benjamin Arthur) creates a new opportunity when he starts an acting school even as his stormy relationship with Shandra (Lisa Anne Durupt) finally implodes, and Aunt Clara (Nancy Sorel) stumbles badly when she is sucked back into the orbit of her toxic ex-husband. As the season progresses the Blechers must wade through a maelstrom of infidelity, financial ruin, and high school wrestlers, as they struggle to heal their home.
