Co-created by Harjo and Taika Waititi, Reservation dogs was renewed for a third season in September. The 10-episode final season will return on August 2.

The half-hour comedy drama follows a group of teenagers (Devery Jacobs, D’Pharaoh Woon-A-Tai, Lane Factor and Paulina Alexis) who come of age on a Native American reservation in Oklahoma. All of the series’ regulars, writers and directors are Indigenous. The series was a critical breakthrough for FX, which produces the series. The series won an AFI Award and the prestigious Peabody Award, but was snubbed by the Television Academy.

“I always knew what the end of this story would be, I just didn’t know when it would happen,” Harjo wrote. “As we continued to break stories and write scripts this season, it became clear to the producers, Taika and me that the season three finale is the perfect one. series final.” Harjo’s full post is below.

FX, meanwhile, praised the show in a statement of its own: “People throw the words historic and groundbreaking too often and unsubstantiated: Reservation dogs is worthy of these superlatives. Sterling Harjo and Taika Waititi have created one of the most important TV shows ever made. They gave the world a completely unique, original and honest portrayal of Indigenous peoples – a portrayal that has never been seen before on television or in film.

“It’s hard to say goodbye to these indelible characters and an award-winning series that The Hollywood Reporter, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Variety And Vulture named The Best Show of 2022. That said, we support Sterlin and Taika’s decision to end the series in a way that will cement its legacy.

“We, along with our partners at Hulu, are eternally grateful to the producers, writers, directors, cast, crew, and the indigenous lands and communities of eastern Oklahoma who collaborated to bring this masterpiece to life. While we’re sad to see the show come to an end, we’re thrilled that Sterlin, Taika, and Garrett Basch are continuing to tell stories for FX. Dogs Ground fans, we hope you will share our excitement and anticipation for the upcoming season.
