The Comeback is coming back. Nine years after canceling Lisa Kudrow’s brilliant comedy, HBO has revived it for a second season, returning Sunday, Nov. 9 at 10 p.m. ET. The ahead-of-its-time series followed faded sitcom star Valerie Cherish (Kudrow), who is so desperate to stay famous that she agrees to star in a reality series about her comeback attempt: appearing on a generic new network sitcom called Room and Bored.
HBO canceled the show, but its fervent fanbase grew over the years, until the network, along with Comeback creators Michael Patrick King (who also worked on Sex and the City during its heyday) and Kudrow decided it was time to catch up again with Valerie 10 years later.
