Created by Michael Patrick King (Sex and the City) and Lisa Kudrow (Friends), The Comeback follows former TV it girl Valerie Cherish (Kudrow) as she attempts to regain the level of fame she once had. Season two of the series, which comes nearly a decade after it was first cancelled, finds Valerie working on an HBO dramedy written by Paulie G. Even though Valerie will be playing the worst version of herself on the show, she believes that this is the big break that she’s been looking for – the way to finally get back to the top after spending decades trying to become the woman she once was just one more time.
In addition to Kudrow, The Comeback stars the likes of Laura Silverman (The Sarah Silverman Program), Lance Barber (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia), Robert Bagnell (Fetching), Damian Young (Californication), and Robert Michael Morris (Running Wilde), with Malin Akerman (Trophy Wife) and Kellan Lutz (Generation Kill) set to reprise their roles as Juna and Chris, respectively.
The second season of The Comeback is set to premiere Sunday, November 9th at 10:00 on HBO. You can check out official key art for the season here.
