HBO Max has unveiled the first look of one of the popular dark comedy shows, Search Party Season 5 with some bittersweet news. After the epic fourth season, fans are clamoring to see more of Dory and how things would settle in her life. But, the streamer recently revealed that the wait won’t be inevitable, as the fifth season is inching closer to its premiere. But just like the dark comedy in the show, its fate also appears in the dark.
Created by Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers, Search Party follows New York City resident Dory Sief and friends Drew, Elliott, and Portia. They frequently indulge in a messy private investigation. Throughout the first three seasons, they dealt with semi-accidental murder, goofy cover-ups, and breathtaking trials. But in the fourth season, a psychotic stalker kidnapped Dory, which later resulted in her friends becoming a search party again.

Well, the first three seasons received above 90% on Rotten Tomatoes while the critics called it engaging and funny. It started airing on TBS in 2016, but season 3 apparently moved to HBO Max, which gained maximum exposure. Still, its fate remains in the dark.
