David Simon‘s The Deuce is returning for a third and final season on HBO. This season sees the team leave the 1970s behind and enter the ’80s at a time when the AIDS epidemic has had a devastating impact on thousands of lives.

Season three begins on the eve of 1985. It marks a time where VHS begins to take over film as the main medium for pornography production, a thriving form that continues to build the successful industry (and the characters) that The Deuce centers around. It follows the lives of prostitutes, pimps, police, mobsters, porn actors and producers as pinnacle types in the ’80s New York pornography industry, who capitalize on VHS and the glamification of California.

As a result, The Deuce‘s trailer shows stars such as James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal in more money-centric situations, parties, balls, lavish porn shoots and seedy 42nd Street video stores in a story that dramatically concludes after three seasons.

Watch the trailer for The Deuce season three above and catch it on HBO when it aires on September 9.
