In an era of shocking TV endings, few shows had a more audacious ending than the first season of the TBS comedy “Search Party.” If this first look at Season 2 is any indication, those final moments are going to reverberate through a few more episodes.
We see Dory (Alia Shawkat), still dealing with the traumatic events of that finale. Now that the mystery of Chantal Witherbottom is pretty much solved, Dory will have to lead the gang away from any bigger kind of trouble. Along for the ride: well-intentioned Drew (John Reynolds), self-obsessed Elliott (John Early), and the ambling Portia (Meredith Hagner). Everyone they meet seems really interested in that dead body in the woods.
The Season 2 cast also includes James Young, Catherine Burns, J. Smith Cameron, Brandon Micheal Hall, Christine Ebersole, and Jennifer Kim. (If you can remember what notable Season 1 name is missing from this list, you can guess why this show’s central character foursome might be in a bit of an artisanal pickle.)
Will the gang be changed by what they went through last season? Will they turn on each other as the law is on their tail? Will we ever get to see what happened to that cult?
For clues (and a fresh batch of excellent Elliott outfits), check out the Season 2 trailer below:
