Rejoice, fans of silly and surprisingly heartfelt adult-skewering animation! Close Enough will return for season 2 on HBO Max. Series creator (and voice of lovable goofball Josh) J.G. Quintel made the announcement today on Twitter. The show, originally developed for Cartoon Network’s [adult swim] programming block, premiered on HBO Max on July 9.
The animated sitcom tells the story of two 30-somethings trying to maneuver parenthood and the complications of no longer being cool, in modern day Los Angeles. The voice cast includes Gabrielle Walsh, Jessica DiCicco, Jason Mantzoukas, Kimiko Glenn and Danielle Brooks. And while it might sound like the kind of show that could just be accomplished in live-action, Close Enough frequently engages in oversized and incredibly surreal interludes. (I just watched an episode where an old woman flashed some people and their faces melted like the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark.) Quintel previously created and provided voice work for Regular Show, which ran on Cartoon Network for 7 seasons and 261 episodes.
