Search Party finds a group of millennials at a hilariously dark crossroads after their friend Dory (Alia Shawkat) becomes obsessed with tracking down a missing college acquaintance. Dory ropes her friends Drew (John Reynolds), Elliott (John Early), and Portia (Meredith Hagner) into a messy private investigation, semi-accidental murder, absurd cover-up, and sensational trial. In season three, the gang is swept up in the trial of the century after Dory and Drew are charged for the semi-accidental murder of a private investigator. As Elliott and Portia grapple with whether or not to testify as witnesses, the friends are pitted against each other and thrust into the national spotlight. In season four, Dory is held prisoner by her psychotic stalker Chip, who is determined to make Dory believe that they are best friends. Meanwhile, Portia is starring in a film about the trial, although not as herself; Elliott has switched party lines to become a far-right conservative talk show host; and Drew is trying to escape his dark past by working as a costumed cast member in a theme park. As the friends begin to connect the dots that Dory might not be touring Europe as her faked social media suggests, they must decide whether to put their traumatic pasts behind them and once again become a search party – but this time, for Dory.
