Bilal Baig’s “Sort Of” Renewed by HBO Max for Season 3

admin2021January 8, 2023

“Sort Of” is coming back to HBO Max. Deadline reports that the streamer has renewed Bilal Baig’s comedy for its third season. 

Created by Baig and Fab Filippo, “Sort Of” follows Sabi Mehboob (Baig), a 25-year-old trying to reconcile their gender identity with their cultural background as a Pakistani-Canadian. The series sees them taking on several identities: a bartender at a LGBT bookstore/bar, the baby of their family, and a nanny, subverting conventional gender roles and labels in the process.

“Baig and Filippo, alongside our partners at CBC and Sienna Films, continue to deliver a heartfelt, empathetic and engaging story and we’re thrilled we get to continue following Sabi, their family, 7ven and the Kaneko-Bauers on their journeys in the new season,” Sarah Aubrey, HBO Max’s head of original content, said.

Before their breakout role on “Sort Of,” Baig appeared on short “#BasicBAEs” about the life of an influencer. They have won a Canadian Screen Awards for Best Comedy Series and a Writers Guild of Canada Award for TV Comedy in recognition of their work on “Sort Of.”

The second season of “Sort Of” debuted on HBO Max December 1 and will run through December 22.
