‘The Comeback’ Cast and EPs on Another Season: ‘It’s Always a Possibility’

11 June 2017 1:44 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

​Austin, Texas — At the Atx TV Festival, HBO’s “The Comeback” was still very much an object of TV fan adoration. Lisa Kudrow, Michael Patrick King, Dan Bucatinsky, and Laura Silverman joined moderator Abigail Spencer to reminisce about the fan-favorite comedy, and how the show returned to do a second season ten years after the first run.

They began the panel by taking a moment to pay tribute to Robert Michael Morris, who played Mickey Dean, Valerie’s hair stylist and confidant. Morris was supposed to join the group at Atx but passed away May 30.

“He’s the only person who could have played that part,” said Bucatinsky.

Kudrow made it clear that though the show was shot documentary style, “It was not about my experience on ‘Friends.'” She added, “I did send the writers cookies, but that’s because I love cookies, not so they’d write me more stuff.” King »

‘The Comeback’: Lisa Kudrow and Michael Patrick King Tease Possible Season 3 at Atx Festival Reunion

11 June 2017 1:14 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Comeback” could be coming back — again. And for exhausting as that turn of phrase as become (we’re sorry), there is no sign of series fatigue among the cast and creators.

Co-creators Lisa Kudrow and Michael Patrick King joined executive producer Dan Bucatinsky and co-star Laura Silverman for a reunion panel at the Atx TV Festival — moderated by the self-described “biggest ‘Comeback’ fan ever,” Abigail Spencer (“Timeless”) — and the group had plenty of ideas for how to keep the series going.

“There’s always a possibility,” Kudrow said of a Season 3. “If [Season 2] happened, then it’s a possibility.”

King echoed her enthusiasm, contending that the television landscape is perfectly set up for a return of Valerie Cherish.

“There’s so much aggressive sales needed, it’s like a perfect humiliation trap,” King said, holding up a water bottle sporting an ad for a network he wasn’t familiar with. »

Fox has announced there will be no second season of 24: Legacy, at least for now. Deadline reports Fox CEO Gary Newman said that star Corey Hawkins' commitment to the Six Degrees of Separation revival on Broadway means he's unavailable.

24: Legacy Season One Review

22 April 2017 8:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ricky Church reviews the first season of 24: Legacy…

24: Legacy’s inaugural season ended earlier this week, bringing a close to former Army Ranger Eric Carter’s stressful day to stop a number of terrorist attacks. Legacy was a satisfying follow-up to the original series with some interesting new characters, but it relied way too much on the worn out tropes of 24 and didn’t take quite enough risks to truly differentiate itself from its parent series.

As the star of the show, Corey Hawkins did a great job throughout the season as Carter. He really got to make the character his own and show how he was a worthy successor to Jack Bauer. However, he only really started coming into his own further into the season. For the first few episodes, Carter was nearly a carbon copy of Bauer, making the same type of morally grey choices Bauer would have made. »
