The cult hit Search Party is returning for a third season at an all-new home. The first two seasons of the series aired on TBS, but for season 3, Search Party is packing up its bags and heading on over to HBO Max. The series follows a group of hip millennials (those darn kids!) as they get mixed up in various mysteries. So it’s kind of like Scooby-Doo, without the talking dog and people dressed as ghosts. Okay, I guess it’s not like Scooby-Doo at all.

We’re just a few days away from the launches of both AppleTV+ and Disney+, but there is still at least one more major player waiting to enter the streaming wars after those two: HBO Max. WarnerMedia’s streaming service will debut in spring of 2020 with around 10,000 hours of content available to consume, including popular hits like Friends and The Big Bang Theory. But there are also tons of original series in development for the new service, and we’re here to round them all up in one place so you can decide if it’s going to be worth it to add yet another streaming service to your monthly budget.
The service will provide content from every branch of the WarnerMedia corporate tree, including HBO, Warner Bros., New Line, DC Entertainment, CNN, TNT, TBS, truTV, The CW, Turner Classic Movies, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, Crunchyroll, Rooster Teeth, and Looney Tunes. Here’s a list of all of the HBO Max shows we know about so far (not to be confused with HBO originals, which are a whole separate thing).

One of the TV hits of last season was TBS’s new show, Search Party. As a comedy, it stretched across genres as Dory (Alia Shawkat) led her friends on a search for their missing friend Chantal (Clare McNulty). By the end, it got very dark, complete with existential angst and a possible murder.
Search Party is back for a second season on TBS. Producer Michael Showalter, know for The State and Wet Hot American Summer, spoke with /Film about the new season.

It’s been nearly three years since Scot Armstrong started shooting Search Party, an R-rated comedy starring Happy Endings alum Adam Pally and Silicon Valley stars T.J. Miller and Thomas Middleditch. Originally, the plan was for Universal to open Search Party in fall 2014 — but fall 2014 came and went without a release, and it’s only now, as we creep into summer 2016, that it’s finally getting ready to hit theaters.
Search Party has strong shades of The Hangover, which seems appropriate enough considering Armstrong wrote The Hangover Part II. Miller and Pally play Jason and Evan, friends of groom-to-be Nardo (Middleditch). Convinced Nardo is making a huge mistake, Jason bursts into the wedding and ruins it. A devastated Nardo heads to Mexico to try and win back his bride, only to wind up naked and stranded and alone with no one to call for help but Jason and Evan. Watch the Search Party red-band trailer below. Read More »

Silicon Valley isn’t coming back for another several months, but in the meantime you can check in with two of the stars right here in the Search Party international trailer. Thomas Middleditch plays Nardo, a groom whose wedding day is ruined, and T.J. Miller plays Jason, the guy who ruins it.
Jason also happens to be Nardo’s best friend, however, and when Nardo winds up naked and alone in Mexico it’s up to Jason and their other pal Evan (Adam Pally) to rescue him. Watch the Search Party international trailer after the jump.
