Lisa Kudrow's “The Comeback” may be making a comeback all its own.

Series creator/director Michael Patrick King (“Sex and the City”) is currently in discussions with HBO about bringing back the short-lived comedy series for a second season, according to Deadline. The critically-lauded docu-style sitcom originally ran for 13 episodes on the network in the summer of 2005 and has amassed a sizable cult following in the near-decade since it went off the air. The show was also nominated for three Emmys for its first season, including a Best Actress nod for Kudrow.

Season 1 of the show centered on former sitcom star Valerie Cherish (Kudrow) as she filmed a reality series documenting her efforts at mounting a career comeback. Since the series went off the air Kudrow has kept busy with a number of feature-film roles as well as her Emmy-nominated Showtime series “Web Therapy,” which started as a web-only show in 2008 before being picked up by the premium cabler in 2011. On the big-screen she'll next be seen in the Seth Rogen-Zac Efron comedy “Neighbors,” which hits theaters on May 9.
