The show's sophomore season is currently airing, with its finale set to air on February 27.
In a statement, Francesca Orsi, executive vice president of HBO programming, praised the cast and crew for taking "Season 2 to extraordinary heights, challenging narrative convention and form, while maintaining its heart."
"We couldn't be more honored to work with this gifted, wildly talented team or more excited to continue our journey with them into Season 3," Orsi said.
