Ramy brings a new perspective to the screen as it explores the challenges of what it’s like to be caught between a religious community who believes life is a moral test, and a millennial generation that doubts an afterlife even exists. In the second season, Ramy delves further into his spiritual journey, finding a new Muslim community and embracing a deeper commitment to his faith.
· Ramy is written, executive-produced, created by and starring Ramy Youssef, executive produced by A24’s Ravi Nandan, co-creators Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch, Jerrod Carmichael, Chris Storer, and produced by A24.

· Resonating deeply with viewers and critics alike, Ramy is yet another example of Hulu’s continued success in elevating powerful and relevant stories about the human experience from breakthrough creators. Season three of the Peabody Award-winning series joins Hulu’s critically acclaimed slate of Originals including Little Fires Everywhere, Normal People, The Great, Shrill, Pen15 and its upcoming series Woke starring Lamorne Morris.”
