Adrian Lester, Robert Glenister, and Robert Vaughn star in the crime drama series Hustle on British television. The programme was developed by Tony Jordan, produced by Kudos Film and Television, and shown on BBC One in the United Kingdom. The series premiered on February 24, 2004, and concluded on February 17, 2012, after eight seasons.
The premise of the show centres around a group of con artists who specialise in “long cons” — elaborate forms of deception that require greater commitment but offer greater payoffs than basic confidence techniques. The narratives of the programme are notable for including behind-the-scenes actions that the audience is ignorant of until the end of an episode, as well as fantasy scenarios and sporadic breaches of the fourth wall by the principal actors.
Throughout its eight-year run, the programme maintained consistently high ratings and received positive reviews from reviewers.
Season 3 of The Hustler was either cancelled or renewed. When does it premiere on ABC? The conclusion of Season 2 has left viewers wondering if the show would be revived for a third season. This post summarises what we currently know about the forthcoming season.
The Hustler Season 3 Story
Apiece episode of “The Hustler,” presented by comedian Craig Ferguson, features five participants working together to answer ten trivia questions for $10,000 each, with the goal of accumulating a community reward fund that increases with each correct response. Why is there a catch? One of the five participants, The Hustler, already knows the answers because each question is based on his or her life and interests, but they must conceal their identity to win the grand prize.
The original format for “The Hustler” was created by British TV and radio host Richard Bacon, who also serves as an executive producer alongside Studio Lambert company founder Stephen Lambert, executive vice president of Studio Lambert USA Jack Burgess, creative director Tim Harcourt, and Susan House.
