Season 3 of Hulu’s Ramy is set to be released on September 30th, and we sat down with stars May Calamawy, Hiam Abbass, and Laith Nakli to chat all about it.
Laith Nakli who portrays Uncle Nasseem in the Hulu series promises growth for his character. He also adds that he loves that Uncle Nasseem is a multi-dimensional character, despite how you may feel about him. “There’s a moment of hope towards the end of the season…so maybe it’s a seed for the future and finding peace.”
Season 3 picks up where season 2 left off back in 2020. This season, The Hassan family is collectively struggling with financial hardship and other issues in season 3. Ramy is focused on gaining business for his Uncles’ jewelry store and they even make a hilarious commercial for it, which Laith notes as a highlight of filming during season 3. “There was so much improvisation in that, I don’t even know what was scripted and what was wasn’t…it’s like the tackiest commercial ever but it was so good, it was so funny!”
May Calamawy shared Deena’s focus this season is on passing the bar to support her family. Dena suggests potentially selling the family home and moving into separate apartments. Hiam Abbass added, “everybody in this season is struggling and the whole family is struggling together.”
