Could life imitate art yet again, or -- more specifically -- could a title come true? Deadline Hollywood reports HBO is in talks with Lisa Kudrow and director Michael Patrick King to bring "The Comeback" back, the duo's comedy from 2005 that's become a cult classic. Though it only lasted one, 13-episode season, "The Comeback" earned respect from most critics and has developed quite the following since it went off the air.

Recent successful resurrections have given new life to many TV shows with rumors constantly swirling of comebacks, "Arrested Develpment" being the most notable example. This makes the news of the Kudrow comedy's possible return even more apt. "The Comeback" was very much ahead of its time, being a single camera reality show spoof. Relevancy shouldn't be an issue, even almost a decade after its original airing. Valerie Cherish still has plenty to teach us.

On March 19, Kudrow retweeted a Slate story suggesting "The Comeback" deserves another season. It even went so far as to suggest HBO should make it available on the company's streaming service, HBOgo. 

Stay tuned for more news of the developing story, especially considering this is all still merely conversation.
