SEASON 1, EPISODE 1
Search Party finds a group of narcissistic millennials at a hilariously dark crossroads after their friend Dory (Alia Shawkat) becomes obsessed with tracking down a missing college acquaintance. The first three seasons follow Dory as she ropes her boyfriend Drew (John Reynolds) and best friends Elliott (John Early) and Portia (Meredith Hagner) into a messy private investigation, semi-accidental murder, absurd cover-up, and sensational trial. Now, Season 4 finds the gang deciding whether to put their sordid pasts behind them and once again become a search party – but this time, for one of their own.
