Crackle Renews 'StartUp' for Season 3

Crackle has renewed its original drama series StartUp for a third season, it was announced today. The drama will return for another 10 episode season sometime in 2018.

In its second season, the drama starred Adam Brody, Ron Perlman, Edi Gathegi, Otmara Marrero, Addison Timlin and Martin Freeman.

Ben Ketai created the drama. He executive produces with Gianni Nunnari, Shannon Gaulding, Tom Forman, Andrew Marcus, Ray Ricord and Anne Clements. Sony Pictures Television, Critical Content, Hollywood Gang Productions and Story Machine produce.

"We are excited to open the writers room and partner with Crackle for Season 3 of StartUp," said Ketai. "This past season was exciting, with nods to relevant and timely topics like corporatization of the Internet, Bitcoin and the darknet that made for some great storytelling. But the series works because those headlines are juxtaposed with the personal stories of our characters and how the cost of ambition impacts their lives and the lives of those around them. We will take that narrative even further in this next chapter and look forward to bringing the StartUp family back together again in the new year."

"Thanks to Ben Ketai for his vision and to our stellar ensemble cast - Martin, Adam, Ron, Edi, Otmara and Addison - whose tremendous performances gave this series the kind of weight and edge that viewers have come to expect from a Crackle original," said Eric Berger, General Manager, Crackle. "We are excited to continue the story in season three and expect that Ben and company will take us on another entertaining and wild ride."
