Party Down, the very funny series that lasted two seasons, is coming back! That’s the good news. Now, for the murky news: it’s unclear which members of the original cast – Adam Scott, Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, Ryan Hansen, Martin Starr, Lizzy Caplan, and Megan Mullally – will be back. As of now, it sounds like none of them are locked down to return, and that makes this entire endeavor slightly suspect. But original creative team Rob Thomas, John Enbom, Paul Rudd, and Dan Etheridge are all back, and that’s a plus.

You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead—your next stop, The Twilight Zone, rebooted by Jordan Peele.
Riding a wave of acclaim left over from his masterful Get Out, and furthered by his recent Us, Peele brings Rod Serling‘s brilliant parable-infused sci-fi series into the 21st century. And what a perfect time it is for this show. Despite what some may have you believe, Serling’s Twilight Zone was always political, and Peele and company aren’t afraid to lean heavily into that.
