Lisa Kudrow’s HBO comedy The Comeback is living up to its name.
The single-camera series, which first aired on the American network in 2005, is staging a comeback, with new episodes expected to air this autumn.
And Valerie Cherish will still be seeking the spot light when the comedy returns for a new six-episode run.
The first and so far only season of The Comeback saw former-Friends star Kudrow play Valerie Cherish, a washed-up sitcom star attempting a career comeback with the help of a reality TV show.
Original stars Lance Barber, Dan Bucatinsky, Robert Michael Morris, Laura Silverman and Damian Young are set to re-join, alongside Kudrow’s co-creator Michael Patrick King.
“The Comeback holds a special place in the hears 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,” says Michael Lambardo, HBO’s programming president.
Of her return to the comedy, Kudrow said in a statement: “It was almost too fun [to] play Valerie Cherish the first time around. I look forward to revisiting this resilient and ironically self-unaware character.”
