Adult animated series Smiling Friends, created by Zach Hadel and Michael Cusack for Cartoon Network’s late-night programming block Adult Swim, follows the exploits of a small nonprofit organisation whose sole mission is to spread joy.
Smiling Friends Creators Hype Season 2’s New Characters
Fans of the Adult Swim animated series Smiling Friends are counting down the days until the show’s Season 2 premiere, and the show’s creators have already dropped major hints about the new characters and plot points that will be featured in the upcoming episodes.
Michael Cusack and Zach Hadel’s original animated series debuted on Adult Swim with a surprise premiere over the course of a single evening, and ever since then it has been at the centre of the conversation for many animation fans. So it came as no great shock when the show was renewed for a second season.
The creators have been working on Season 2 of Smiling Friends since the announcement, and during a special panel for the series as part of the Adult Swim Festival event this weekend in Philadelphia (of which Adult Swim shared some highlights), series co-creator Michael Cusack opened up about some of the things fans can look forward to seeing in the second season of the series.
While playing coy about major spoilers, it seems the plans are to keep expanding the world and characters introduced during that first season with even more wild events. Cusack started off by saying, “You’re going to see crazy characters, you’re going to see insane stuff.”
“It’s going to be a continuation of season one without feeling too repetitive… It’s an interesting show dynamic where it’s like alright, they’re helping sad people, but we don’t want to make it like they’re helping a guy that’s gonna kill himself every episode.
Making the show more of a sandbox where the protagonists can explore the town or the world in search of adventure is difficult. I’m going to totally avoid saying this directly because we need to keep this a secret, but you’ll meet a whole new cast of characters.”
So it’s far from anything concrete, but at least fans can rest easy knowing even more is on the way! Season one of the animated series Smiling Friends is now available to watch on HBO Max and repeats are airing on Adult Swim on a variety of weeknights.
The official description of the series is as follows, “Smiling Friends follows the folks working at a quirky, colourful company that’s mission is to spread smiles. Co-created by Michael Cusack (YOLO: Crystal Fantasy) and Zach Hadel (Hellbenders), Princess Bento Studio is in charge of the animation for this quarter-hour series.”
‘Birdgirl’ and ‘Smiling Friends’ Renewed for Season 2 at Adult Swim
Two popular shows on Adult Swim will be back for a second season. There will be new seasons of both Birdgirl and Smiling Friends next year. Both series’ origin can be traced back to Adult Swim, which has become one of Cartoon Network’s most watched blocks thanks to its selection of mature-audience animated comedies like Rick and Morty, the Venture Bros., and Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
The network premiered both shows in the previous year. Paget Brewster stars as the title character in Birdgirl, a spinoff of another popular Adult Swim series, Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law.
Originally a law firm, Birdgirl’s protagonist Judy Ken Sebben (Brewster) now runs what seems to be more of a nonsensical technology company under the name Sebben & Sebben Worldwide. Judy has to juggle her role as CEO with her role as crime fighter Birdgirl at night.
In the original 2001 series, Brewster played the role as a recurring one. Judy’s team of coworkers and fellow crime fighters includes Rob Delaney, Kether Donohue, John Doman, Negin Farsad, Tony Hale, and River L. Ramirez.
Adult Swim claims that in the second season, Judy and the gang will explore topics like corporate ethics, cancellation culture, health fads, and numerous missteps from which they will not learn. According to this group, you have to create new issues before you can tackle the old ones. The premiere of the first season’s six episodes occurred on successive Sundays beginning on April 4, 2021.
