Here is everything that you need to know about Search Party Season 3 scheduled to premiere on HBO Max.

Search Party is an American Television Series that initially aired its 2 seasons on TBS, beginning from 21st November 2016. The series went on an indefinite break after the release of its 2nd season in 2017. The followers of the series have expressed their excitement regarding the release this June, having waited for almost three years. Tagged as a neo-noir, Search Party’s creators Michael Showalter, Charles Rogers and Sarah-Violet Bliss too are enthusiastic about the upcoming third season.

Its unfaltering portrayal of millennial culture and an abundance of dark humour makes ‘Search Party’ a 21st-century zeitgeist. The story follows a group of 4 self-absorbed young friends who begin as a team to find their missing college mate. A series of events ensue that endanger their lives and reputation leaving them to resort to not-so-fair means in order to protect themselves.

The third season will be premiering on WarnerMedia’s newly launched streaming service HBO Max on June 25th. Three episodes will be released on premiere date and later episodes will be revealed every coming Thursday. In addition to this, the 1st and 2nd seasons are already available for streaming on HBO Max since 27th May.

We shall not elaborate on the interesting events of the first two seasons considering those of you who haven’t watched them. Yet here is what the protagonist Alia Shawkat has to say about the third season. “…a crazy splinter effect where it’s like we are bonded together, but is it by love or just trauma keeping us together?”

We expect that the third season coming our way will offer some riveting content. The creators Charles Rogers and Sarah-Violet Bliss have called the third season “kind of like a representation of media frenzy”. All we can say is that the trajectory of the four friends will take unexpected twists this season.

About its release on HBO Max, the creators say, “Search Party is alive and thriving!! We are so thrilled to show the world what we’ve been working on the past two years and for new fans to find it on HBO Max”.
