The series, which is loosely based on Adlon's life, won a Peabody and Critics' Choice Award, and Adlon has been nominated for two Emmys and a Golden Globe for her role.

The series also stars Mikey Madison as Max, Celia Imrie as Phil, Max, Hannah Alligood as Frankie and Olivia Edward as Duke. New guest stars in the upcoming third season include Sharon Stone, Matthew Broderick, Doug Jones, Glynn Turman, Judy Reyes, Cree Summer, Charlie Robinson, Janina Gavankar and Marsha Thomason. Returning players include Diedrich Bader, Greg Cromer, Rebecca Metz, Kevin Pollak and Alysia Reiner.

Adlon will once again direct every episode of the series as she did for the second season. However, she brought in a writers room for season three after FX parted ways with Louis C.K. following sexual misconduct allegations.

Better Things season three premieres Thursday, Feb. 28 at 10 p.m. on FX.
