It seems that Starz caters to one of its niche fan bases.
The network is developing a revival of cult comedy “Party Down ”, which running for a limited series in six episodes, announced Starz Thursday.
The new series will be produced by “Party Down” alumni Rob Thomas (“Veronica Mars”, “iZombie”) with John Enbom (“iZombie”, “Benched”), Paul Rudd and Dan Etheridge (“Veronica Mars”, iZombie ”). Enbom will also serve as the showrunner.
With this news in mind, we can’t help but ask fans who feel the show was canceled too soon:
The dark and often goofy comedy – which ran for two seasons in 2009 and 2010 – followed six hapless caterers in Los Angeles who typically got way too involved with their clientele. The show had a cast of outstanding comedic actors: Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Jane Lynch, Ken Marino, Martin Starr and Ryan Hansen. In the second season, Megan Mullally joined the cast and Lynch moved on to a guest lead role.
And while Starz hasn’t made any official cast announcements, The Hollywood Reporter has said that “a large chunk of the cast will likely be returning” – and the reactions on Twitter from the stars of the original series seemed to echo that sentiment:
“At the end of 2019, the actors and producers of“ Party Down ”were all gathered during a retrospective of the show hosted by Vulture. We had such a good time that we wanted to find a way to put the team back together, ”Thomas said on Thursday.
“The cast is so busy these days that finding a window where we can do it may require trigonometry, but we’re determined to make it happen,” he added.
It sounds a lot like what we’ll be seeing our six beloved weirdos again … perhaps with more ludicrous thoughts on the dangers of smoking marijuana:
