FXX's Dave has been a hit for the network that has long reveled in adult comedy. FXX, and its parent channel FX, has boasted shows such as It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Archer, and Dicktown. The network has thrived in its dedication to adult-oriented comedic programming. Dave has proudly followed in that strong heritage of adult programming.
For those unfamiliar, Dave follows the trials and tribulations of Dave, a fictionalized version of rapper David "Lil Dicky" Burd, as he seeks to become a rapper. The show, created and headlined by Lil Dicky, launched in 2020 and has become yet another well-regarded show for FXX. It currently holds an 89% critic rating and 85% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. However, it has been nearly two years since Season 2 premiered in 2021.
Lil Dicky Promises "Surprises" For Dave Season 3
Season 2 left off with Dave riding the high of a strengthened relationship with hype-man GaTa and coming off a performance at the VMAs. However, he must now contend with the realities of his first-ever tour. Fans can expect a bigger on music in season 3, as Lil Dicky explained in an interview with Uproxx. "I think there’s just, in general, more new music, even as it goes on. By the end of the season, there’s even more music." Lil Dicky said, "But I just know that my fans are starving for music. I’m well aware of that. And the show takes up so much of my time that I didn’t want people to think that I’m just an actor playing a rapper now."
While Lil Dicky was not willing to spoil the season, he did he reveal how he thinks the audience will take the season's direction. When asked if Season 3 had a "thesis statement", Lil Dicky choose his words carefully. "Answering that question now kind of gives away but just know we’re headed somewhere. And I think people will be surprised where it goes," he said. Fans will just have to tune in to find out what happens to Dave, GaTa, and the rest of the crew. Dave Season 3 is available to watch on FXX and Hulu.
