In the trailer of the last season of HBO How with John WilsonThe eponymous host of the comedy documentary series prepares his audience for a sendoff.
Wilson says goodbye after this third season, and the trailer is designed as an ode to television. “Hello, New York,” Wilson begins in his typical greeting. He then goes on to describe what a tough day in the city looks like with the light at the end of the tunnel being television. “TV will always be there for you,” he says. “On your proudest day. Or in your darkest hour. That shiny box will be there waiting for you.”
But Wilson also wants you to know that the comfort will be short-lived. “And when you get to the final episode, don’t be sad that it’s over, just be glad that you felt something,” he says.
His monologue, as usual, is accompanied by the gloriously bizarre images he captures, including a dove with a noodle on its back, a sad-looking man dressed as a hot dog, and a cat in a tie.
The tagline for season three reads that the filmmaker and self-described “anxious New Yorker” continues his “heartfelt mission of self-discovery, exploration, and observation as he films the lives of his fellow New Yorkers while attempting to deliver everyday advice on six deceptively simple and wildly random new topics.” Building on the second season, the episodes take unexpected turns as John navigates a new set of topics including how to find a public bathroom, how to exercise and how to clean your ears.
Wilson, Nathan Fielder, Michael Koman and Clark Reinking serve as executive producers.
The critically acclaimed and Emmy-nominated series closes with its final six episodes, premiering weekly on HBO and Max, when How with John Wilson premieres on July 28 at 11 p.m. ET.
