Valerie Cherish’s Comeback is set.
HBO on Monday officially confirmed the worst kept secret in Hollywood: Lisa Kudrow’s underrated comedy is returning for a six-episode second season, to launch this fall.

The “limited series” will pick up 10 years later and find Valerie trying to gain a foothold in a very crowded TV landscape. “Valerie thinks she has it all figured out this time,” reads HBO’s press release. “She doesn’t.
“The Comeback holds a special place in the hearts of its many fans, including many of us here at HBO,” said the cabler’s programming president Michael Lombardo in a statement. “I can’t wait to find out what Valerie’s been up to since we last met.”
Added Kudrow: “It was almost too fun to play Valerie Cherish the first time around. I look forward to revisiting this resilient and ironically self-unaware character.”
The Comeback, which debuted on HBO in 2005, was cancelled after one very low-rated season. The series, and Valerie Cherish, went on to develop an avid cult following.
Kudrow will once again serve as an EP alongside her producing partner Dan Bucatinsky and Comeback creator Michael Patrick King.
