HBO announced a trio of fall premiere dates for returning series, including one show that hasn't been on the network for nearly a decade.
That latter series, "The Comeback," is making a triumphant comeback of its own, with Lisa Kudrow reprising her role as washed-up sitcom star Valerie Cherish. The first iteration of the show lasted 13 episodes back in 2005 before it was pulled by HBO; this time around, it's being brought back for an eight-episode limited series run, set to premiere on November 9.
Directly in front of "The Comeback" on the schedule is "The Newsroom," which is returning for its third and final season on the network. The Aaron Sorkin-penned series will wrap up its run with six episodes, and Paul Lieberstein ("The Office") is joining the show as an executive producer.
Rounding out the programming block is "Getting On," the dark comedy set in a hospital. Its sophomore season is slated to run for six episodes.
The full schedule is as follows:
"The Newsroom" -- premieres Sunday, November 9 at 9 p.m.
"The Comeback" -- premieres Sunday, November 9 at 10 p.m.
"Getting On" -- premieres Sunday, November 9 at 10:30 p.m.
