‘The Comeback’s’ Lisa Kudrow Credits New Fans for HBO Show’s Return: ‘Hats Off to the Younger People’ (Video)

Actress and her co-star/producing partner Dan Bucatinsky tell TheWrap how the show came back from cancellation

Lisa Kudrow‘s “The Comeback” is, well, coming back. And it’s all thanks to her newfound friends: Young viewers.

“There just seemed to be an increase in audience for it that were also younger and younger and who got it a lot faster than the people in 2005, ” Kudrow told TheWrap. “Hat’s off to the younger people.”

Nine years after HBO canceled the series, the network is bringing it back for a second season on Sunday. “The Comeback” follows the life of sitcom star Valerie Cherish (Kudrow), who is on a desperate mission to revive her once thriving acting career.

“A growing audience for nine years, when you’re not on the air, is unbelievable,” said co-star and Is it Or Isn’t It producing partner Dan Bucatinsky.

Kudrow may have pulled off one of the greatest comebacks of all time: Simultaneously starring in both HBO and its arch-nemesis Showtime, where “Web Therapy,” her show about an online therapist, is now in its fourth season.

Watch TheWrap‘s interview above.

“Comeback” kicks off its second season this Sunday at 10 p.m. ET on HBO.
