“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 executive producers Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers previously.
They added: “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!” said 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.”
The first three seasons of the series followed best friends Dory, Drew, Elliott and Portia through a messy private investigation, semi-accidental murder, absurd cover-up and sensational trial.
In season four, Dory was held prisoner by her psychotic stalker Chip (Cole Escola), forcing Drew, Elliott and Portia to once again become a search party – but this time, for Dory.
The comedy series, known for its trenchant satire of millennial culture, has a series 96% critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes. The first two seasons aired on TBS before the series moved to HBO Max for seasons three and four.
