It's official: "The Comeback" is making a comeback.
HBO confirmed the news Monday that its cult, one-season show, starring a fresh-from-"Friends" Lisa Kudrow as a deluded, washed-up sitcom star, will be returning for another season. "The Comeback," which premiered way back in 2005, lasted only 13 episodes; this new season is being billed as a "six-episode limited series."
The meta show focuses on Valerie Cherish, an actress who decides to shoot a reality show detailing her attempt to regain her star status, though things don't exactly go as planned. According to HBO's official press release announcing season two, the show will pick up 10 years later, as the reality TV craze has reached new heights.
"Valerie thinks she has it all figured out this time. She doesn't," the release states. " ... 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."
Lance Barber, Dan Bucatinsky, Robert Michael Morris, Laura Silverman, and Damian Young are slated to appear alongside Kudrow in the new batch of episodes. Season two of "The Comeback" is slated to debut this fall on HBO.
