The final season of the latest show from HBO's David Simon is here, and we're guessing you're looking to join the crowd watching with wide eyes. The series stars Maggie Gyllenhaal as a sex worker named Candy (née Eileen Merrell), whose encounters with Vince and Frankie Martino (both played by James Franco) a bartender and a gambler, respectively, bring her to the adult film industry. Here's how to watch season 3 of The Deuce online. 

This third season brings both of James Franco characters and Gyllenhaal from the late 1970's and into the 80's. This season is set to focus on big picture topics including the cocaine epidemic in America and the outbreak of HIV, two topics that connect to the porn industry in easy-to-draw lines. 

WATCH THE DEUCE ONLINE: WHEN'S SEASON 3 AIRING?

The Deuce's third season hits airwaves in the United States at 9pm Eastern and at midnight Pacific.

In Canada, The Deuce Season 3 begins at the same date and time as it does in the states: 9pm Eastern.

In Australia, Season 3 starts airing tomorrow, Sept. 10 at 9:30pm local time.

Audiences watching in the U.K. will have to wait, but we're not sure of the exact date it will stream. I just skimmed the Sky TV schedule, and it was not listed on Sky TV Atlantic, where it's expected to debut.

How to watch The Deuce online in Canada

Canadian audiences won't have any wait to watch The Deuce (Brits on the other hand, I've got bad news below), as it airs at the same time in their provinces as it does in the states below. In order to watch, though, you'll need to get Crave, the exclusive home of HBO in Canada. Frustratingly, Crave costs even more with HBO, as you need to pay both the standard $9.99 for the service and an extra $9.99 for the MOVIES + HBO add-on pack.

Looking for top American premium cable content? Crave includes Showtime by default, with the option to add HBO and other networks, such as Starz.View Deal
