It’s official! Tubi’s adult animated series, the Woody Harrelson led, The Freak Brothers will indeed be back for a second season. In its breakthrough season, the network’s first original animated show led the streaming service to massive success, clocking in viewers like they’d never seen before. And the best news is that audiences won’t need to wait *too* long to catch the followup story as the next installment is expected to be released sometime in December of this year. What’s even more exciting is that the entire lineup of star studded vocal talent will be joining production to once again bring more stonerific stories to the forefront all while raging against the establishment – at least in their own way.

Along with Woody Harrelson, audiences can expect to hear the returning voices of John Goodman, Pete Davidson, Tiffany Haddish, Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, Andrea Savage, La La Anthony, and rap megastar, ScHoolboy Q. Along with being featured performers, Harrelson, Haddish, Davidson, Devine, and Anderson also executive produce alongside Courtney Solomon, Mark Canton, Gilbert Shelton, and Manfred Mroczkowski. Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland serve as showrunners. 

The series pulls its story from Gilbert Shelton’s cult classic comic, The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers, which first saw the light of day way back in 1968 via an underground Austin, TX newspaper called The Rag. The comics and Tubi series follow the lives of three pot smoking, rebel rousing, lethargic pals (Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, Pete Davidson) who love to fight the power alongside their sarcastic cat, Kitty (Tiffany Haddish). After smoking some out-of-this world bud in 1969, the foursome end up taking the power nap of their lives and don’t wake up for another 50 years. When they finally come out of their slumber, present-day life in San Francisco looks one hell of a lot different than it did in the late 60s. As the trio navigates a new political system, new social norms, and – most importantly – new highly potent strains of marijuana, they try to sink their brains into what this fresh take on life means for them. 

While it may come as a bit of a shock to hear the voice of Woody Harrelson paired up with an animated character, some will remember that the legendary actor starred in a 2013 animated feature titled, Free Birds. While it was certainly more family friendly than the actor’s current cartoon, the title did have something in common with The Freak Brothers – an absolutely stacked cast. Along with Harrelson, the film boasted a crew of Owen Wilson, Jimmy Hayward, Amy Poehler, Keith David, and even George Takei. Aside from his trip back into the colorful world of The Freak Brothers, fans can soon catch Harrelson on the big screen in the action comedy flick, Man from Toronto. Slated for an August 12 release, the feature will follow a miscommunication of epic proportions when a regular schmuck from New York City is confused for a top tier hitman. 

If you have yet to catch the first season of The Freak Brothers, we couldn’t encourage it more. Snappy dialogue paired with a well written, smart script – not to mention the vocal stylings of Woody Harrelson, Pete Davidson and more – make it an absolute must watch for any fans of the adult animation genre.
