The second season of HBO’s animated comedy series Animals will receive its UK premiere on Sky Atlantic on Saturday June 2nd at 00:10am, it has been announced.
Animals focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to Earth’s least-habitable environment: New York City. Whether it’s lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis, the awkward small talk, moral ambiguity and existential woes of non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own. The comedy series is produced by Duplass Brothers Productions and features the voices of Phil Matarese & Mike Luciano.
In the opening episode of the show’s second season, titled Rats, while stuck in an animal testing lab, rats Mike and Phil enter a love triangle with their imaginary friend, which inadvertently reveals the truth of their situation. Two fleas discuss their basketball dreams and ponder life while stuck on a monkey’s back. An algae questions its existence. The episode was written and directed by Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano.
