Watch The Comeback’s trailer, and let’s re-watch season one together

A full-blown trailer for The Comeback‘s second season has arrived. While HBO has been releasing clips, this trailer, below, is the most footage we’ve seen of Valerie Cherish, who’s now starring in an HBO series and being followed by behind-the-scenes camera crew. Besides Lisa Kudrow’s exceptional Valerie Cherish, we also see many of the other main characters from the first season, including Valerie’s nemesis Paulie G.; her producer, Jane; and her stylist/confidant, Mickey.

Even if the raw footage that we’re watching isn’t destined to produce a reality series, as it was in season one, the core idea appears to remain, with Valerie attempting to control people, including Jane, in an attempt to control how she appears on screen. I’m incredibly excited for its return, and this is definitely the most excited I’ll ever get for a fictional reality series.

Before the second season’s Nov. 9 debut, I want to re-watch the entire first season, which I haven’t seen in its entirety in nine years. Because the half-hour episodes move fast, and binge-watching is fun, I’ll break the 13-episode season into three parts, writing about four episodes each Sunday, with the final five episodes the day of the premiere. All of that starts next Sunday, Oct. 26.
