The Comeback - Officially making its comeback on HBO

The Comeback is coming back for a six-episode event series ! Production starts in three weeks on May 19.

The cult HBO mockumentary series starring Lisa Kudrow in a satire of the television business (especially reality TV and the world of sitcoms) is returning with new episodes after almost a 9-year 'hiatus'.

The original 13-episode run aired from June 5, 2005 to September 4, 2005, and low ratings caused a swift cancellation (the show stood on its own though, it wasn't a frustrating ending in any way, not that it matters now).

The Comeback stars Lisa Kudrow (Web Therapy) as Valerie Cherish, the fading star of a hit sitcom in the 90s having a look at the difficulties in trying to come back into the business. Kudrow did that show a year after her decade-long role as Phoebe Buffay on Friends. Malin Akerman (Trophy Wife) & Kellan Lutz (Generation Kill) are returning, too, with creator Michael Patrick King and writers Dan Bucantisky & Amy B. Harris also on board.

These 6 new episodes will air later in the year or in early 2015.


HBO really should air reruns of the first 13 episodes very soon, say on Sundays at 11:30 after Last Week with John Oliver - btw, Veep (airing at 10:30) could be seen as an heir of The Comeback - this show was brilliant and truly ahead of its time. The concept definitely lends itself to a revival, a "where are they now" type of thing with the reality TV crew checking in to see how Valerie is doing almost 10 years later. Do you have another idea?

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.
