Search Party is Moving from TBS to HBO Max Starting with Season 3
HBO Max announced today that two more seasons of comedy Search Party will be coming to the streaming service set to launch in Spring of 2020. The show, which premiered on TBS in 2017, is a dark comedy about a group of privileged, self-absorbed twenty-somethings covering up a murder.
“With HBO Max we have the unique opportunity to continue this brilliant, acclaimed series and connect with even more of the younger, digital natives who have worshipped it the most,” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max and president TNT, TBS and truTV.
In addition to the new seasons of the show, HBO Max will carry the library of the first two seasons of *Search Party. The show stars Alia Shawkat, Meredith Hagner, Brandon Micheal Hall, John Early and John Reynolds.
“Search Party is alive and thriving!! We are so thrilled to show the world what we’ve been working on the past two years and for new fans to find it on HBO Max,” said Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers. “You’re going to love the two new seasons, but if for some reason you don’t, then you’ll get your subscription fee back. Actually, that’s not true. That’s a joke. We don’t have that kind of power.”
HBO Max, which will launch next April, will bring exclusive original shows like Dune and The Flight Attendant, as well as original feature films from prolific producer Greg Berlanti and Reese Witherspoon. HBO Max will also be the exclusive streaming home for all episodes of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air as well as Pretty Little Liars. Those will join The CW originals, starting with Batwoman and Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene, will now come to HBO Max instead of Netflix.
