Last month, we reported that HBO was in talks to revive their cult hit 2005 Lisa Kudrow comedy The Comeback for a limited run season, and now, it’s actually happening. E! reports that HBO has ordered six episodes of the show as a “standalone event series” but the network may renew the show as a regular series if those six episodes do well.
Stars Lisa Kudrow, Malin Akerman, Kellan Lutz, and the show’s co-creator Michael Patrick King will be returning, although Akerman and Lutz likely won’t be in every episode. The six episodes will take place nine years after the events of the original series, which starred Kudrow as a washed-up ‘80s sitcom star trying to revive her career.
