Why did BET renew The Ms. Pat Show for Season 3?
According to Deadline, BET has signed comedian, actress, and producer Patricia “Ms. Pat” Williams to a multi-genre overall deal under which she will produce, write and perform in new series and other projects—both scripted and unscripted— across BET linear and streaming.
The deal expands her relationship with BET following the success of The Ms. Pat Show, a comedy series based on her life in which she serves are co-creator, executive producer, and star. BET+ has greenlighted a third season with production already underway in Atlanta. Via her namesake production banner, Williams aims to create content both on-screen and behind the camera that inspires conversation through humor and raw honesty.
“One of the first people to tell me to pursue comedy was my welfare care worker. At that moment, I never could have imagined the success of The Ms. Pat Show or that BET and Paramount Global would give me the chance to tell even more stories,” Williams tells Deadline. “I’m so excited for this new journey and grateful to BET for believing in me. If you think The Ms. Pat Show is wild, just wait until you see what we come up with! It’s only the beginning!”
Moreover, The Ms. Pat Show Season 1 shattered records for viewing and audience engagement on BET+. Executive producers also include Brian Grazer and Lee Daniels. “Since our first viewing of The Ms. Pat Show’s pilot episode, we knew Ms. Pat was something special and we are excited to build our relationship with her and her team to bring our BET+ members more content that is refreshing, raw, and real,” said Scott Mills, CEO BET, in a statement.
The Ms. Pat Show for Season 3 Potential Release Date
The exact release date of The Ms. Pat Show for Season 3 is yet to be confirmed by the network as of July 8, 2022. Keep in mind that the renewal was announced a few hours ago, so any information on the release date seems way too soon. But on the bright side, it is speculated that the upcoming season will not be delayed and will be released sooner than anticipated, which means the release date will be sometime around early to mid-2023.
The most likely time frame of the second season premiere date will be sometime around June to August 2023, considering the release date pattern of seasons one and two. Likewise, we would want to emphasize that this is all guesswork at this time. As a result, BET will publish and confirm the official release dates for the next season in the following months when the production starts to warp up in a scheduled manner. Until then, fans should keep an eye on it.
The Ms. Pat Show for Season 3 Plot
According to Deadline, While the series often tackles controversial topics like abortion, drug addiction, racism, and child abuse, Williams does so with aplomb by creating a safe space for raw and unfiltered conversations between the characters for the benefit of the viewer—and often herself. As she works toward putting the final touches on Season 3, she’s also currently touring nationally in support of her Netflix stand-up special Y’all Wanna Hear Something Crazy? which was released in February.
For BET, she’s already hit the ground running, “I do have things already in the works. One of the things I’ve always wanted to do was unscripted. I would like to do a workplace comedy,” she said. “I also have some projects I was working on before my deal so I’m planning to present it all to BET and what they don’t want I’ll put in the freezer. You are all going to get so much more. I’m really excited about the future and my partnership with BET. I’ve been mad for about 30 years, I know I have a lot of stuff they’re going to love. This is a great opportunity for me to step out on my own and I’m grateful for that. This is me stepping out on my own.”
In a particularly poignant episode in Season 2, Ms. Pat confronts the complicated relationship between Black women and their hair. When someone close to the character jokingly calls her hair nappy, Ms. Pat is transported back to her childhood and the root of her pain. Her mother often mocked and criticized young Pat’s hair and compared it unfairly to her sister’s hair which was easier to style. “The theme of Season 2 is healing,” she revealed. “We’ll be dealing with family issues and deeper stuff.
There’s an episode where we talk about my mother’s boyfriend molesting me with a focus on overcoming and healing. I know some people find these topics dark but it can be dark and funny because it’s stuff that people need to know it’s ok to talk about.” She continued, “I cried after that episode about Black hair. You know, we can’t pick our parents. I thought I ended up with a shitty mom who made a lot of mistakes. But I had to learn that she gave me what she was given; hurt people hurt people. Through this story of Black hair, I wanted to show how trauma starts early.”
The Ms. Pat Show Season 3 Cast
The series’ original cast is anticipated to return and carry the storyline into the next season. In addition, the network had not released any new casting announcements as of July 8, 2022. Therefore, the list of the series’ prominent characters with descriptions is as follows:
Ms. Pat as Patricia “Pat” Ford Carson: The matriarch of the Carson household. She, like Ms. Pat in real life, grew up in rough conditions in Atlanta, had two children when she was a teenager, and moved to Plainfield with her husband with whom she has two more children. While her older kids’ father abused her and provided her with little to no support, her husband Terry loves her and acts as the loving partner she never had with her older kids’ father.
Bernard Calloway as Terry Carson: Patricia’s well-meaning husband. He is based on Ms. Pat’s husband, Garrett. Though his wife grew up with a lack of a strong support system, he provides her with the real love and stability that she never had during her turbulent childhood.
Tami Roman as Denise Ford: Patricia’s free-loading sister who lives with the family. Often a source of comedic tension between Ms. Pat and Terry, she struggles to keep a job.
Vince Swann as Brandon James: Patricia’s sweet, but dimwitted son from a previous relationship with Patricia’s ex-boyfriend from Atlanta. He is based on Ms. Pat’s son, Nikia.
Briyana Guadalupe as Janelle Carson: Terry and Patricia’s sour and intellectual daughter who is almost 17 years old. She is based on Ms. Pat’s daughter, Garrianna.
Theodore John Barnes as Junebug Carson: Terry and Patricia’s cheerful youngest child, who is 14 years old and obsessed with social media. He is based on Ms. Pat’s son Garrett “Junebug,” Jr.
Hence, we urge viewers to have some patience because it usually takes some time for new cast announcements to surface. The network will let fans know in advance if there are any new characters being introduced in the upcoming season. Fans should therefore attentively follow any such developments on social media in the coming months.
The Ms. Pat Show Season 3 Episodes
The Ms. Pat Show Season 3 is expected to have 10 episodes which usually have an average runtime of approx 27 – 30 minutes just like the first and second seasons. We’d also like to point out that, as of July 8, 2022, the exact episode titles and numbers for the upcoming season cannot be confirmed. For the time being, we recommend that fans wait patiently and binge-watch Season 1 to refresh their memories of key plotlines.
Moreover, the viewers should also look forward to the release of Season 2 to know what’s next in store for The Ms. Pat Show. More details on the series episode and dates will be released in the following weeks, as the number of episodes is ultimately determined by the plot that the show aims to transmit to the viewers, making it a slightly bigger or smaller season than its predecessor.
