Lisa Kudrow reprises her role as Valerie Cherish in The Comeback, which returns to HBO on November 9. The second season follows the original 2005 run that saw Cherish’s formerly in-demand TV starlet agree to allow cameras follow her every move, reality-style, as she appeared in a new sitcom — with disastrous results. This time around, Cherish is cast in an HBO show, Seeing Red, and then learns she’s evidently playing a “neurotic older sitcom actress” (notice the Deadline cameo on Dan Bucatinsky’s phone as he brings her the news).

Michael Patrick King and Kudrow co-created the series, whose original run was nominated for three Primetime Emmys. Kellan Lutz and Malin Akerman are also reprising their roles in the new season.
