Hulu Original "Moone Boy" to Return for A Sidesplitting Third Season

Final Season of the 2015 BAFTA TV Award Nominee for Best Situation Comedy Premieres May 13

April 24, 2015 - The critically acclaimed series Moone Boy will return to Hulu for a third and final season with six all-new episodes on Wednesday, May 13. The 2013 International Emmy(R) Award-winning comedy series stars David Rawle as Martin Moone, a youngster in small-town Ireland, and co-creator/co-writer Chris O'Dowd (St. Vincent, Bridesmaids, The I.T. Crowd, Girls) as his imaginary best friend, Sean Murphy. Distributed by BBC Worldwide North America.

Wrapping up the late '80s in season one and season two, the Moone household comes crashing into the '90s following the addition of Dessie and baby Rose to the chaotic brood. In no hurry to grow up, Martin and his imaginary pal Sean, plus best mate Padraic, enjoy a fresh batch of escapades, from becoming door-to-door salesman and hunting for UFOs, to wrangling pet donkey Donkey Kong.

"We're so happy to see these lovable characters return for another season of Moone Boy," said Lisa Holme, Vice President, Content Acquisition, Hulu. "We can't wait to see what sort of shenanigans Martin and Sean get into... and out of this time around."

"Chris O'Dowd is a tremendous comedic talent who has provided audiences with an insightful and unique point of view on his childhood," said Matt Forde, Executive Vice President Sales & Co-Productions for BBC Worldwide North America. "The first two seasons of Moone Boy have been phenomenal successes on Hulu, the perfect home for the series."

Moone Boy season three recently aired in the UK and premiered with rave reviews from the British press including the Radio Times who called the series "the Irish export that everyone should be watching," and The Guardian, who called the show "adorable," adding "charm seeps from every pore."

In addition to winning the 2013 International Emmy(R) Award for Best Comedy, Moone Boy was also the winner of the 2012 Irish Film and Television award for Best Entertainment Program and was nominated for a British Comedy Award for Best New Comedy Program that same year. Earlier this month, season three was nominated for a 2015 BAFTA TV Award for Best Situation Comedy.
