The dark comedy Search Party has been caught in a weird transitional place in TV history. It was introduced as a bingeable show — on TBS. The cable channel decided to dump all the episodes at once on TBS.com and their on-demand offerings, and then show the first season in one giant marathon. Though the show was a success, TBS did not repeat the strategy, releasing Season 2 traditionally.
It’s been so long since we last saw the TBS comedy Search Party that you might have forgotten most of its plot….which is a problem since this is one of those serialized shows. It was announced earlier this year that it was moving to HBO Max for its third season, and that they were working on a fourth. But what happened in the first and second again?
