Michael Schneider Variety Editor at Large Production on “Hacks” Season 3 will resume the week after next, series producers Paul W.

Downs, Lucia Aniello and Jen Statsky revealed to Variety on Sunday. Downs, Aniello and Statsky were at the WGA Awards in Century City, where the trio picked up the win for episodic comedy (for the Season 2 finale “The One, The Only”). “She’s doing great,” Downs said. “She actually said to me recently that she’s better than ever, which I believe because she is Jean Smart.

She’s at home. Obviously, not out on the town tonight. But she’s doing really well.” Production on Season 3 of the Emmy-winning HBO comedy was put on hold late last month after Smart revealed via Instagram that she had successfully undergone a heart procedure. “We’re supposed to go back the week after next, but it all just depends, we have to get back into it cautiously and make sure that everybody is safe,” Downs added. “Hacks” had been half way through its Season 3 production when the show took the pause.

It had already been unlikely that the show would return before the Emmy cutoff of May 31, but Aniello said that it definitely won’t be back until later in the year. “And that’s totally fine,” she said. “I think we’re all feeling like the most important thing for us is everybody on the crew, including Jean’s health and wellness and well-being feeling taken care of.
