The flagship BET Plus show is The Ms. Pat Show, with season 3 of the sitcom right around the corner. Based on the true story of standup comedian Patricia "Ms. Pat" Williams, the series looks into the life of its lead attempting to settle down with her family in small town Indiana after leaving Atlanta as a convicted drug dealer.
Pushing its MA-14 parental rating to the limit, the unfiltered family sitcom feels like a unique blend of All in the Family and Roseanne in addition to the urban fish-out-of-water tale of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The Ms. Pat Show has already earned praise for delivering laugh-out-loud comedy with serious social commentary, including an Emmy nomination in 2022.
Following a cliff-hanger ending for season 2, The Ms. Pat Show returns for season 3 with 10 brand new episodes. Here's everything we know about The Ms. Pat Show season 3.
The Ms. Pat Show season 3 release date
All episodes of The Ms. Pat Show season 3 are set to be released on BET Plus Thursday, February 23.
The Ms. Pat Show season 3 cast
The central cast of The Ms. Pat Show all return for season 3, including Ms. Pat as Patricia "Pat" Ford Carson.
J. Bernard Calloway is back as Ms. Pat’s understanding yet flawed husband Terry Carson. Former reality television star known for time on The Real World and Basketball Wives turned actress Tami Roman returns as Ms. Pat’s recovering drug addict sister, Denise Ford. Vince Swann, Briyana Guadalupe and Theodore John Barnes return as the lead’s live-in children Brandon, Janelle and Junebug. Brittany Inge should be coming back as Ms. Pat’s successful eldest daughter, Ashley, as well.
The Ms. Pat Show season 3 plot
There were several unresolved storylines during the last season of The Ms. Pat Show. The biggest has to do with Ms. Pat and Terry getting into a huge fight. As the series lead began to make headway in her ambitions to be a stand-up comic, she decided to get an abortion after discovering she was pregnant, which angered Terry.
Season 3 will deal with the fallout of that argument, as Ms. Pat begins to tour as a stand-up comedian. Denise also begins to succumb to childhood trauma and relapses. Meanwhile, Ashley will have to deal with being cheated on by her girlfriend.
Here’s is a quick plot synopsis from BET:
"Ms. Pat gets to tour with one of her comedy idols, but that doesn't mean she gets a break from her chaotic family."
