HBO Max Renews 'Search Party' for Season 5

HBO Max has today renewed its original comedy series Search Party for a fifth season. Moreover, co-showrunners Charles Rogers and Sarah-Violet Bliss have signed a two-year overall deal to develop new programming for the streamer.

The dark comedy stars Alia Shawkat, John Reynolds, John Early and Meredith Hagner.

Rogers and Bliss executive produce with Michael Showalter, Lilly Burns and Tony Hernandez.

"We are thrilled that HBO Max has not only given the world a fifth season of Search Party, but also shown this much faith in our partnership with them as we develop new projects for the platform," said Bliss and Rogers. "Potential titles for upcoming shows include Monkeys Love Manhattan and The Pineapple Predicament. Those aren't actual shows we would ever pitch but it exhibits that we can make up titles if we need to."

"Charles and Sarah-Violet are the masters of genre-blending and we can't wait to see what they come up with next!" added Sarah Aubrey, Head of Original Content, HBO Max. "It's been a joy working with them - they are whip smart, wildly funny and have such a distinctive worldview - we couldn't be happier that they are continuing to call HBO Max their home."
