A comeback to the cult comedy is officially in development.
March 4, 2021
Starz announced today that a limited revival of Party Down is in the works, with its original cast and production team all on-board to return. The news comes over a decade after the comedy was cancelled after just two seasons.
The original version of the show premiered in 2009 and aired a total of 20 episodes. It followed a group of aspiring Hollywood actors and writers work catering gigs part-time while waiting for their big break. In each episode the team works a new event, and learns about the guests' lives.
If the main cast of the show were to all indeed return for the revival, there would be some pretty recognizable names involved. The likes of Jane Lynch, Megan Mullally, Lizzy Caplan, Adam Scott, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen, and Ken Marino could all be sharing screen time if the series comes to fruition.
As with all other recent revivals, if they stay un-woke, I'll watch because it was a good show 10 years ago.
