“Awkwafina Nora From Queens” Revealed To Be Season 3 Premiere Preview

The sitcom will return after Season 2 concludes in October 2021.

Awkwafina may be heading under the sea for ‘The Little Mermaid’ and battling Dracula in ‘Renfield’ this spring, but at heart the BAFTA nominee is still Nora from Queens. Season 3 of the star’s Comedy Central series, aptly titled “Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens,” premieres April 26. The season comes more than a year after the series’ sophomore run ended in October 2021.

Originally released in January 2020, “Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens” stars the “Farewell” actor as a fictionalized version of himself in a family drama set in his home borough of Flushing, Queens. The show follows Nora as she navigates her twenties in New York with the support of her tight-knit family. BD Wong stars as his father Wally, Lori Tan Chinn as his grandmother, Bowen Yang’s cousin Edmund, and Jennifer Esposito as Wally’s girlfriend Brenda.

Season 3 will focus on Nora as she navigates “themes of identity and success.” In the teaser, she struggles to name a single book when Edmund tells her about his alleged reading habits.

“There aren’t that many books,” Yang says in the teaser.

In addition to the main cast, the series guest stars in season 3: Scott Adsit, Celia Au, Gabo Augustine, Michael Bolton, Ross Butler, Jordan Carlos, Ronny Chieng, Jen D’Angelo, Lea DeLaria, Chrissie Fit, Woody Fu, Janeane Garafalo, Gina Gershon , Judy Gold, Ken Jeong, Adrian Martinez, Frankie Muniz, Jon “Dumbfoundead” Park, Noah Robbins, Jai Rodriguez, and Greta Titelman.

Awkwafina makes her directorial debut in Season 3 of the sitcom, with Bill Benz, Jordan Kim and Laura Murphy also directing several episodes. The star produced the series with Teresa Hsiao, and the two executive produced with Andrew Lutin, Sean Fogel, Peter Principato and Itay Reiss of Artists First. The series is produced for Comedy Central by MTV Entertainment Studios, with Tara Power serving as executive producer for the studio.

Currently, “Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens” is the only scripted live-action original on Comedy Central after most of the channel’s shows, including “The Other Two” and “South Side,” moved to HBO Max in 2020. The channel still airs several animated programs such as ‘South Park’ and ‘Digman!’, as well as the flagship series ‘The Daily Show’. Watch the full trailer below.
