HBO’s new TV show Animals just premiered on Friday, and season two is already in the works. In a recent interview with Uproxx, series creators Mike Luciano and Phil Matarese discussed the origin of their animated comedy, their writing process, and plans for season two.
Animals features the voices of Mark Duplass, Aziz Ansari, Lauren Lapkus, and Adam Scott as animals living in the streets of New York City.
Speaking to Uproxx, Luciano and Matarese said they are currently in the middle of writing season two:
Yeah, we’re in the middle of writing right now. It feels so good to be back in that part of the creative cycle. We’re really energized to get these new episodes into the mix now that the rest of it is almost out there. We like to, I don’t know, take risks or experiment with the medium of animation. Continuing that for season two, especially know [sic] that we know our capabilities, will be great.”
HBO has already greenlit the series for two seasons.
