Both actors will reprise their roles in HBO’s cult comedy series when it returns for a limited run this fall, our sister site Deadline reports.

Akerman will once again play actress Juna Millken, who starred opposite Lisa Kudrow‘s Valerie Cherish in the sitcom Room and Bored, while Lutz will play Chris MacNess, also an actor on Room and Bored.

The Comeback originally ran on HBO for 13 episodes in 2005.

Neither Akerman nor Lutz are expected to appear in all six new episodes.

    Interesting that Chris is now Juna’s “love interest.” Am I forgetting something, or was that not something that was touched on in the first season?

    I literally want to cry I am so happy about the return. The fact that we’re getting even a little bit of the cast returning is fantastic news.

      It wouldn’t make sense for these two to be in all six episodes because I highly doubt Room and Bored is still on the air in their world (meaning they wouldn’t be interacting with Valerie on a daily basis). Still, it will be fun to catch up with these characters.

    This is fantastic. Juna and Valerie are great together.

    • alistaircrane says:

      I liked the characterization of Juna. She wasn’t the “blonde bi*ch diva” stereotype she could have been.

      • tara17 says:

        She was perfect as “she’s too likable to hate, but is she really as genuine as she seems”? Perfect against Kudrow’s Cherish.

    These two are as dull as processed food. They must have good agents because none of them can act for toffee.

    Why do people keep trying to make Kellan Lutz a thing? He has no charisma or skills
