The Comeback returns this Sunday night and with it, the return of Valerie Cherish, Lisa Kudrow's hilarious, fame-seeking character.
In a matter of weeks, Valerie Cherish returns! HBO has been teasing us of the Comeback comeback for a while now, and this week, we finally have an actual trailer, which fills in a few more blanks about what this limited series will be about. Check it out!
Phones off, everybody! The Comeback's latest preview comes in the form of an inside look at the HBO comedy series, which actually offers up some clues about what we might expect from The Comeback's big comeback. Watch it below, then we'll break it all down...
Well, one thing is clear, Valerie Cherish does a terrible Al Pacino impersonation. The latest teaser for The Comeback has Lisa Kudrow's TV Star character spontaneously quoting The Godfather, only she doesn't seem to recall what movie the line is from. And her Pacino impression isn't very good. But that's kind of what we love about Valerie. Her kind of funny is always just a little bit off.
Maybe it’s because HBO strives for a platform that is higher quality than a lot of the network’s out there. Or maybe the network is just really good at marketing. Whatever the reason, HBO announced premiere dates for returning drama The Newsroom, as well as comedies The Comeback and Getting On this morning, and I got a little giddy inside.
For all my cynicism involving television’s cyclical ways, I couldn’t be more excited about the
The Comeback's big comeback now has as a premiere month set. While HBO hasn't release the exact date for Valerie Cherish's official return, the premium cable channel has announced that The Comeback will return as a limited comedy series this November, along with the second season of the Laurie Metcalf comedy Getting On.
It's our first official look at The Comeback's Valerie Cherish! Standing next to her BFF/hairdresser Mickey (Robert Michael Morris), Lisa Kudrow's character looks like she might be having her picture taken. That's just a guess, based on the way she's holding her sunglasses, like she just took them off, and the arm and back that's to us in the frame.
Kellan Lutz and Malin Akerman are officially on board for The Comeback's return. The two actors were rumored to be returning for the HBO comedy's comeback, likely for limited appearances, meaning we shouldn't expect to see either of them in all six episodes. Today comes confirmation of Akerman and Lutz's involvement in The Comeback, which returns as a limited series this fall.
It's not like we didn't believe The Comeback's comeback was really happening, but this brief and amazingly teasy video of Valerie Cherish announcing her new Twitter page via cell phone cam brings the reality of The Comeback's second coming to life. Valerie Cherish is back! And she has a new Twitter, which Valerie seems to think is unnecessary because she already has "like... 800 followers..."
HBO made it official today. The Comeback is coming back. This news was already more or less confirmed, but Valerie Cherish needs to know that she's being heard, and what better way to ensure than than with an official announcement from HBO? The announcement not only confirms that The Comeback will return for a 6-episode limited series this fall, and that Kudrow will reprise her role as the lovable and "ironically self-unaware" (Kudrow's words) Valerie Cherish
There's been talk of a comeback for Lisa Kudrow's excellent but unfortunately short-lived 2005 HBO comedy The Comeback, and the latest update comes just shy of official confirmation. A six-episode followup to The Comeback is reportedly in the works, with Lisa Kudrow, Kellan Lutz and Malin Ackerman expected to return.
If ever there's a show that needs a comeback, it's The Comeback. And from what's being reported, HBO may be up for making that happen. Word is, the premium cable network is in talks with Lisa Kudrow and Michael Patrick King to bring the underrated comedy back for a limited series, which is -- in this humble Valerie Cherish fan's opinion -- exactly the right approach for a concept like this one.
This past decade has seen some of the biggest leaps in TV innovation. It will be remembered for the advent of DVR and online streaming, for genre redefining shows like The Office and Dexter
