Lisa Kudrow's 'The Comeback' Is Officially Coming Back


Lisa Kudrow's 'The Comeback' Is Officially Coming Back


You've heard all the chatter, but now it's finally official: Lisa Kudrow's 'The Comeback' is — you guessed it — coming back to a small screen near you for a six-episode second season, set to launch sometime this fall.

The limited series will pick up 10 years later and find Valerie attempting to gain a foothold in a very crowded TV landscape. “Valerie thinks she has it all figured out this time,” HBO stated in a press release. “She doesn’t."

For her part, Kudrow could not be more excited about the news and is eager to get back into the character's mindset. "It was almost too fun play Valerie Cherish the first time around," Kudrow remarked in a statement. "I look forward to revisiting this resilient and ironically self-unaware character."

Michael Lombardo, president of programming at HBO added: "'The Comeback' holds a special place in the hearts of its many fans, including many of us here at HBO. I can’t wait to find out what Valerie’s been up to since we last met.”

The official HBO description reads as follows: "In the new episodes, Valerie continues her search to attain the spotlight, but this time around, it illuminates a whole new series of problems when she achieves the visibility she wants."

The series originally debuted on HBO back in 2005, but was canceled after its first season due to lackluster ratings. It eventually went on to develop quite an avid cult following.

Like before, Kudrow will once again serve as an executive producer alongside her producing partner Dan Bucatinsky and 'Comeback' creator Michael Patrick King.
