UPDATED with full trailer: HBO Max is organizing another season of Search Party. The former TBS comedy series will return to the streamer for Season 4 on January 14, and you can watch the new full trailer above.
Three episodes will bow on the 14th, with three more premiering on January 21 and the final four of the season on January 28. The series also is getting a companion podcast. Details of that below.
In Season 4 of Search Party, 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, though 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 posts suggest, they must decide whether or not to put their traumatic pasts behind them and once again become a search party – but this time, for Dory.
Guest stars this season include Susan Sarandon, Busy Philipps, Ann Dowd, Griffin Dunne and Lillias White, with R.L. Stine in a cameo role. Search Party is executive produced by Sarah-Violet Bliss, Charles Rogers, Michael Showalter, Lilly Burns and Tony Hernandez.
Search Party: The Podcast debuted this week, hosted by comedian and Saturday Night Live castmember Bowen Yang. He will sit down with a Search Party co-creator, actor or writer as well as a celebrity fan to dissect specific themes from the show’s first three seasons. Together, they will humorously analyze the characters’ psychology, share behind-the-scenes anecdotes and discuss the series’ most insane moments.
Episode 1 of the podcast, featuring Charles Rogers and Taran Killam, is live now, and new episodes will release Mondays and Wednesdays on all major podcast platforms. Future guests will include Paul Scheer, Chloe Fineman, Busy Philipps, Mitra Jouhari, Kate Berlant, Carrie Brownstein, Michaela Watkins, Vanessa Bayer and Shalita Grant.
