It is being reported that TBS has renewed Search Party for a second season. The dark comedy premiered this fall as part of a new strategy by the cable network which saw it release the show's full 10-episode first season over the week of Thanksgiving.
So far the show has received mixed reviews, with each episode having drawn roughly 1.1 million viewers across all platforms. It is bolstered, however, by a strong appeal among millennials under 34 which gives it the youngest and most diverse audience of any other TBS original series.
Search Party follows a young woman who learns that a college acquaintance of hers has gone missing. Despite a personal connection to the girl, she enlists her friends to help investigate the mysterious disappearance. But it isn't very long before the bumbling sleuths become entangled in a plot more sinister than they were prepared for.
Look for Season 2 of Search Party to return with another 10 episodes in summer 2017.
