NEW YORK ─ December 11, 2018 ─ Premium pay television network EPIX®, an MGM company, has renewed its original seriesGet Shorty for a third season. The dark comedy from MGM Television, based in part on the 1990’s bestselling Elmore Leonard novel of the same name and created for television by Davey Holmes (Shameless, In Treatment) will return in 2019 with all-new episodes.
