"The Comeback holds a special place in the hearts of its many fans, including many of us here at HBO," said HBO Programming President Michael Lombardo in the announcement. "I can’t wait to find out what Valerie’s been up to since we last met." Production on the new episodes will begin in Los Angeles this month, and the series will return to HBO in the autumn.
