We know all about dysfunctional families on television, but the Gemstones from HBO’s The Righteous Gemstones are a special kind of crazy hilarious. The third season of the series is set to premiere this June, and we have a new trailer showcasing the shenanigans of the highly toxic televangelist family.
Check this out:
We don’t have a direct breakdown of the plot synopsis, but it looks like the Gemstones will be running into a different kind of religious group in the form of a cult run by Steve Zahn (The White Lotus). Though they do look like some Manson-era hippies, their love for guns (and hate for the Gemstones) could make them some formidable opponents for the Gemstone family.
Speaking of family, it looks like Uncle Baby Billy (Walton Goggins) is back to his old shenanigans. Though not a Gemstone himself, Billy did get a significant arc in the last season, and we should expect him to be trying to make ends meet again, no matter what it takes; be it slinging fake medicine pills or taking advantage of his religious celebrity.
Danny McBride has always been great when it comes to his brand of comedy, and after Vice Principals, The Righteous Gemstones manages to keep being outrageous and crazy. We don’t know how long they plan to run the show, but as long as Jesse, Judy, and Kelvin are idiots, they will always have something interesting to tackle every season.
Watch out for The Righteous Gemstones when it premieres on HBO Max on June 18.
