1. When Does 'the Righteous Gemstones' Season Three Premiere?

Unfortunately, HBO hasn’t released an official premiere date for The Righteous Gemstones season three. However, the network officially renewed the show for a third installment in January 2022.

“After a season of literal fire and brimstone, blood, sand, and rollerblading, who wouldn't come back for more?” said Amy Gravitt (executive vice president of HBO programming) in a statement. “The Gemstone family makes us laugh like nobody else.”

2. What Is 'the Righteous Gemstones' About?

The dark comedy introduces viewers to the Gemstone family, who are no strangers to deviance, greed and—of course—charitable work. The show highlights their world-famous televangelist traditions, along with the enemies who wish to destroy their empire.

Although HBO hasn’t shared any details about The Righteous Gemstones season three, Cassidy Freeman (who plays Amber) discussed a potential idea. “What’s really fun about season two is that we get to see part of Eli’s history,” she told PureWow. “We get to see his past. We get a little glimpse into where he came from, and I think it would be really cool to do that with all of the characters.”

Freeman continued, “I would love to meet Amber’s mom. You know, like this whole idea that she comes from poverty. I think it’d be really interesting to see where she comes from.”

When asked who should play Amber’s mom, Freeman added, “The list is long.”
