One of the many TV shows that have been canceled far too early and that fans have been fighting to see revived is the Starz comedy Party Down.
The hilarious show starred Ken Marino, Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Martin Starr, Ryan Hansen, and Jane Lynch—who was then replaced by Megan Mullally after landing the role on Glee—as the employees of a catering company. It was also known for an endless supply of brilliant cameo performances from actors like J.K. Simmons, George Takei, and of course, Steve Guttenberg.
While doing a panel for the new Fox comedy Breaking In, Mullally spoke about the show. And while a full revival still isn’t the cards, it does appear that a Party Down movie is in fact happening.
Mullally simply said “John Enbom (Veronica Mars writer and writer/producer of both Party Down and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) is writing it right now, I’m excited about that,” which is surely enough for fans to be happy about…for now. The ultimate joy would come from Starz or someone else bringing the actual show back (a half-hour comedy doesn’t always translate well to the feature film platform) but this will have to suffice for now.
It’s not known when this might happen but she also shared that the entire cast will be back except for Lynch, who’s status is still unknown. She was able to take a break from Glee to do a cameo in the second season of the show, so her involvement in the movie is still very possible.
Are you excited about a Party Down movie, or do you just want to see the show come back?
