HBO Max’s Search Party Season 4 First Look Photos & Premiere Date Revealed
The comedy-thriller series Search Party returns to HBO Max for its fourth season in January 2021 and the first photos of the upcoming season have been released! You can check them out now in the gallery below.
In the new season, Dory (Alia Shawkat) is held prisoner by her psychotic stalker Chip (Cole Escola), who is determined to make Dory believe that they are best friends. Meanwhile, Portia (Meredith Hagner) is starring in a film about the trial, although not as herself; Elliott (John Early) has switched party lines to become a far-right conservative talk show host; and Drew (John Reynolds) is trying to escape his dark past by working as a costumed cast member in a theme park. As the friends begin to connect the dots that Dory might not be touring Europe as her faked social media posts suggest, they must decide whether or not to put their traumatic pasts behind them and once again become a search party – but this time, for Dory.
Joining the show’s guest stars this season are Susan Sarandon, Busy Philipps, Ann Dowd, Griffin Dunne, and Lillias White, as well as R.L. Stine in a cameo role.
Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon (Dead Man Walking, Thelma & Louise, The Client) plays Lylah, the unapologetically wealthy aunt to Chip, Dory’s kidnapper. Busy Philipps (He’s Just Not That Into You, Made of Honor, Cougar Town) plays Donna DiMarco, a former teen star who is cast as Portia in a film portraying the murder of Keith Powell (Ron Livingston). To Portia’s dismay, Donna has a lot of specific choices in mind.
Emmy winner and Golden Globe nominee Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale, Hereditary, Compliance) plays “Paula Jo,” a nosy Christmas-obsessed townie who gets a little too close to Chip’s house for his own comfort. Oscar nominee Griffin Dunne (Duke of Groove, After Hours, This Is Us) plays Richard Wreck, the CEO of a pastry company called Lil’ Sticky’s, which might offer a vital clue to finding Dory’s whereabouts. Tony winner Lillias White (The Life, Dreamgirls, Hercules) plays Wilma, a world-famous talk show host who has an obsession with Chantal (Clare McNulty).
R.L. Stine is one of the most popular children’s authors in history. His books have sold more than 400 million copies, and the Goosebumps series have so far inspired a television show and two motion pictures. He is currently writing a series of graphic novels entitled Just Beyond.
Search Party is executive produced by Sarah-Violet Bliss, Charles Rogers, Michael Showalter, and Jax Media’s Lilly Burns and Tony Hernandez. The first three seasons are available to stream now on HBO Max.
