What to expect from Search Party Season 5?
Though he’s most well-known for his iconic film roles, including the Jurassic Park franchise, Goldblum has quite an extensive list of television credits, such as Law and Order: Criminal Intent and Will & Grace, the latter of which earned him an Emmy nomination for his role. He has also had roles on Glee, Portlandia, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. He is also the host of the Disney+ Nat Geo documentary series, The World According to Jeff Goldblum, which premiered in 2019 and was renewed for a second season.
HBO Max also signed “Search Party” showrunners Charles Rogers and Sarah-Violet Bliss to a two-year overall deal along with renewing Search Party for a fifth season earlier this year. Season 4 wrapped up back in January and ended on quite the cliffhanger. While Dory appeared to die in a fire by her stalker, the final moments of the season finale showed that she is still alive. It will be interesting to see how Goldblum fits into this thrilling series, but his quirky humor makes him perfect for the show.
