Right now, you can watch Party Down season 3 online (well, the first episode), and see where everybody's gotten off to. 

Party Down season 3 release date, time

U.S. date and time: Party Down season 3 episode 1 is already on Starz on-demand, having released today (Friday, Feb. 24). The first episode airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
Release dates for Canada, the U.K. and Australia can be found below.

Yes, Party Down Catering — the catering group of misfit wannabe actors, writers and others — is back in the business. It all starts with a reunion, as Kyle (Ryan Hansen) seems to have found his big break, and hired the group he used to work with to supply the drinks and hors d'oeuvres.

Oh, and if you somehow didn't see Party Down seasons 1 and 2, this is a perfect time to get familiar. The series featured many an actor before their latest big breaks, with Adam Scott before Parks and Rec., Jane Lynch before Glee and while Martin Starr had done Freaks and Geeks, Party Down preceded HBO’s Silicon Valley. The comedy series follows the catering group from event to event (one per episode), where nothing rarely goes according to plan.

Speaking of things not going as they should have, Party Down catering employee Casey Klein (Lizzy Caplan) will not return this season. Caplan's schedule conflicted due to the filming of the FX on Hulu miniseries "Fleishman Is in Trouble." 

That said, Jennifer Garner seems to be filling Caplan's spot in the series, and other guest stars include James Marsden, Quinta Brunson, Fran Kranz and Nick Offerman.
