HBO Max Picks Up SEARCH PARTY for a Fifth Season
Showrunners Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers Sign Overall Deal with HBO Max
HBO Max has picked up Max Original SEARCH PARTY for a fifth season and signed the series' showrunners Charles Rogers and Sarah-Violet Bliss to a two-year overall deal to develop new programming for the streamer.
"We are thrilled that HBO Max has not only given the world a fifth season of 'Search Party,' but also shown this much faith in our partnership with them as we develop new projects for the platform," said executive producers Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers. "Potential titles for upcoming shows include 'Monkeys Love Manhattan' and 'The Pineapple Predicament.' Those aren't actual shows we would ever pitch but it exhibits that we can make up titles if we need to."
"Charles and Sarah-Violet are the masters of genre-blending and we can't wait to see what they come up with next!" said Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max. "It's been a joy working with them - they are whip smart, wildly funny and have such a distinctive worldview - we couldn't be happier that they are continuing to call HBO Max their home."
SEARCH PARTY stars Alia Shawkat, John Reynolds, John Early and Meredith Hagner. The first three seasons followed best friends "Dory" (Shawkat), "Drew" (Reynolds), "Elliott" (Early) and "Portia" (Hagner) through a messy private investigation, semi-accidental murder, absurd cover-up and sensational trial. In season four, Dory was held prisoner by her psychotic stalker "Chip" (Cole Escola), forcing Drew, Elliott and Portia to once again become a search party - but this time, for Dory. The comedy series, known for its trenchant satire of millennial culture, has a series 97% critics' score on Rotten Tomatoes. The first two seasons aired on TBS before the series moved to HBO Max for seasons three and four.
SEARCH PARTY is executive produced by Sarah-Violet Bliss, Charles Rogers, Michael Showalter and Lilly Burns and Tony Hernandez for Jax Media.
The first episode of SEARCH PARTY season four is currently available to stream for free on HBO Max and the HBO Max website.
In SEARCH PARTY season four, Dory (Alia Shawkat) is held prisoner by her psychotic stalker Chip (Cole Escola), who is determined to make Dory believe that they are best friends. Meanwhile, Portia (Meredith Hagner) is starring in a film about the trial, although not as herself; Elliott (John Early) has switched party lines to become a far-right conservative talk show host; and Drew (John Reynolds) is trying to escape his dark past by working as a costumed cast member in a theme park. As the friends begin to connect the dots that Dory might not be touring Europe as her faked social media suggests, they must decide whether to put their traumatic pasts behind them and once again become a search party - but this time, for Dory. Joining the show's stellar guest stars this season are Susan Sarandon, Busy Philipps, Ann Dowd, Griffin Dunne and Lillias White, as well as R.L. Stine in a cameo role.
