Hacks: How many episodes?
- The HBO Max series Hacks is made up of 10 episodes in total.
Episodes have been unveiled in pairs and the final two are scheduled to arrive on the platform on Thursday, June 10th 2021.

Renewal or cancellation news will likely emerge shortly after the season 1 finale has premiered.
Hacks is now streaming on HBO Max.
