‘Ramy,’ ‘Better Things’ Renewed for New Seasons at Hulu and FX

Ramy Youseff’s acclaimed “Ramy” comedy series has been renewed for a third season by Hulu, while Pamela Adlon’s similarly-praised “Better Things” is returning for a fifth go-around at FX as part of her new overall deal with the network.“Ramy,” which released its sophomore season in May, follows a fictionalized version of Youseff as he embarks on a spiritual journey in his politically-divided New Jersey neighborhood.
