HBO Max has given "Legendary" 10s across the board as the show will return for a third season, according to Deadline.

News of the Season 3 order comes not long after the ballroom competition series aired its Season 2 finale, crowning a new winner. Ballroom MC Dashaun Wesley and judges Leiomy Maldonado, Jameela Jamil, Law Roach, and Megan Thee Stallion are all set to return.

"This show itself has shown a lot of people and gained a lot of respect for our community," Maldonado said of the show. "I feel like the ballroom community is prepared for competition and the competition they can bring to this show is something that you won't see anywhere else."

"Legendary" follows a number of voguing houses that compete against each other in dance-offs. During each episode, a house is eliminated until there is only one left. The show's first season was set in New York City and featured houses from the Big Apple. Season 2 took to Los Angeles, but as yet, Deadline notes it's still unknown where Season 3 will be plotting its next destination.

"We've only begun to scratch the surface when it comes to showcasing the beautiful world that is ballroom," HBO Max's Jennifer O'Connell told Deadline. "We are excited to work with our partners at Scout again to take this show to even greater heights in season three and continuing to shine a light on these compelling stories."
