Search Party originally premiered back in 2016 on TBS but in between series two and three, the mystery show made a jump to the newly launched streaming service HBO Max. Series four had a very different change of pace with Dory (played by Alia Shawkat) going missing herself this time. Has Search Party been renewed for a fifth series?
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Search Party.
The original premise of Search Party was about Dory who was bored out of her mind and so dragged her friends into looking for someone who had gone missing from their school.
This was five years ago and since then, plenty has happened, including Search Party being moved from TBS to HBO Max.
This is where the latest series was released, with the premiere taking place on Thursday, January 14.
Search Party stunned fans as it ended with shocking finale subscribers didn’t expect.

In season four, Dory herself was the one to go missing so she was no longer in charge of the investigations.
This time around, it was up to her friends to find her, despite them being reluctant to go on yet another hunt for a missing person.
However, the series built up to a moment where it was believed that Dory was actually dead.
Thankfully, this was revealed not to be the case but it was a particularly memorable moment in the show.
Perhaps it was the ending of series four that encouraged HBO Max to give Search Party another season.
As of yet, a release date hasn’t been announced for season five but it is still very early days.
Shows across the world are being majorly delayed as well because of the pandemic but if work on the series starts in the next few months and filming not too long after, Search Party could return sometime in early 2022.
The impact of series four is still going to be felt when the show does return.
