Lisa Kudrow - Lisa Kudrow's The Comeback To Return After Almost A Decade

Lisa Kudrow is set to reprise her role in cult Tv favourite The Comeback when it returns for a limited run after nearly a decade off the air.

The former Friends actress starred in the mockumentary-style comedy in 2005, but the series was cancelled after just one season.

The show earned three Emmy nominations and has gained popularity in subsequent years, and now bosses at America's Hbo network have officially announced it will return with six new episodes this autumn (14).

In The Comeback, Kudrow plays washed-up sitcom actress Valerie Cherish, who stars in her own reality show in an attempt to re-ignite her career.

Kudrow shares her enthusiasm for returning to the quirky role in a statement, which reads: "It was almost too fun play Valerie Cherish the first time around. I look forward to revisiting this resilient and ironically self-unaware character."

The Comeback was created by Kudrow and Sex and the City creator, Michael Patrick King.
