Party Down: New photos from the revival showcase Jennifer Garner as new Adam Scott love interest

We get a first peek at what season 3 of the Starz show brings for the stoic catering staff as they hit the LA party scene after years away.

Entertainment Weekly has just debuted exclusive photos for the upcoming revival of the comedy show Party Down. The Starz series made its last appearance in 2010, and the ensemble cast has gone on to have prominent careers in the comedy world since. The cast, including Adam Scott, Ken Marino, Jane Lynch, Megan Mullally, Martin Starr, and Ryan Hansen, is slated to return in one capacity or another. However, one name notably not making an appearance is Lizzy Caplan due to other commitments. These new photos include a look at the new love interest for the bartender, Henry, who comes in the form of Evie, to be played by Jennifer Garner.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Evie is “a successful movie producer fresh off a breakup. As she’s reconsidering her life choices, this new relationship with Henry becomes a way for her to explore what else is out there.” Also joining the series revival as a fresh face is James Marsden. Marsden is playing Jack Botty, “a famous actor known for being the lead in a popular superhero franchise. He enjoys his life, his fame, and being the center of everyone’s attention.” 

At the beginning of season 3, Henry and the rest of the catering team have moved on. A surprise reunion rears its head, and the cast of characters find themselves back serving at the whim of colorful, zany characters on the Los Angeles catered party circuit.

The initial run of the cult hit comedy debuted on Starz in 2009 with the ensemble Scott, Caplan, Marino, Lynch, Starr, and Hansen starring. Although, Lynch would then leave after the first eight episodes of the 10-episode first season in order to do Glee on Fox. Jennifer Coolidge came in to round out the cast for the last two episodes. Then, season two saw the addition of Megan Mullally as a regular member of the cast and Lynch would return to make an appearance in the season finale. Both seasons are available on the Starz app and streaming sites.

Party Down will be making its comeback on Starz on February 24. The show will stream on the channel’s app at midnight, then will air on the Starz channel later that night at 9 PM ET.
