Epix announced today that Get Shorty will be returning for a third season. The good news comes two months after the dramedy's sophomore run, which once again made a good impression on critics and audiences alike.

Based on Elmore Leonard's best-selling 1990 novel of the same name, Get Shorty follows Miles Daly, who works as the muscle for a Nevada crime ring. Wanting to broaden his horizons in an attempt win back his wife and daughter, he changes professions by becoming a movie producer with the help of a washed-up filmmaker.

The cable network has ordered seven episodes of Get Shorty for Season 3, which is down from the 10 it received in Seasons 1 and 2. Look for a return in 2019.
