The comedy “Search Party” is getting new episodes, and a new home. HBO Max, the upcoming streaming service, announced that two more seasons “Search Party” will be coming to the platform starting in the Spring of 2020. The dark comedy follows a group of privileged, self-absorbed twenty-somethings covering up a murder. The show stars Alia Shawkat, Meredith Hagner, Brandon Micheal Hall, John Early, and John Reynolds.
“With HBO Max we have the unique opportunity to continue this brilliant, acclaimed series and connect with even more of the younger, digital natives who have worshipped it the most,” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max and president TNT, TBS and truTV.
According to the network’s announcement, the third season finds the gang swept up in the trial of the century after Dory and Drew are charged for the semi-accidental murder of a private investigator. As Elliott and Portia grapple with whether or not to testify as witnesses, the friends are pitted against each other and thrust into the national spotlight as notorious public figures. As Dory’s sanity begins to fracture, it becomes increasingly clear that they may not have brunch together for quite some time.
“Search Party is alive and thriving!! We are so thrilled to show the world what we’ve been working on the past two years and for new fans to find it on HBO Max,” said Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers. “You’re going to love the two new seasons, but if for some reason you don’t, then you’ll get your subscription fee back. Actually, that’s not true. That’s a joke. We don’t have that kind of power.”
“Search Party” is executive-produced by Sarah-Violet Bliss, Charles Rogers, Michael Showalter and Jax Media’s Lilly Burns and Tony Hernandez.
The HBO Max lineup also includes Haley Lu Richardson and Barbie Ferreira in “UNpregnant,” a “Gossip Girl” reboot, the new “Doctor Who” series’ streaming rights, “The Flight Attendant,” “Love Life,” “Station Eleven,” “Made for Love,” “Dune: The Sisterhood,”several shows from Ellen DeGeneres, and an animated “Gremlins” show.
