An impressive lineup of guest voices, including Kieran Culkin, Janelle James, Jinkx Monsoon and Ziwe Fumudoh, joins the Fantasy family in the new 10-episode season debuting July 23.
Adult Swim has shared a trailer for the new, 10-episode second season of its adult animated comedy Teenage Euthanasia, returning Sunday, July 23 at Midnight ET/PT (it streams the next day on Max).
Set in a mildly apocalyptic near-future inland Florida, the show follows the Fantasy family and their inland Florida funeral home, Tender Endings. The cast of characters includes recently undead Trophy Fantasy (voiced by Maria Bamford); her teenage daughter, Euthanasia "Annie" Fantasy (voiced by Jo Firestone); Annie's Oedipus-complex-stricken Uncle Pete (voiced by Tim Robinson); and Annie's "old country" immigrant grandmother Baba (voiced by Bebe Neuwirth).
In Season 2, Uncle Pete discovers the existence of foreskin and makes friends with a mobster’s limo. Trophy is elected mayor of Fort Gator and finds her calling in sexual education. Annie becomes a teen doctor and continues her quest to be more than a two-hour hang. And Baba fills in for a deceased morning shock jock and goes bear hunting. There’s also a very charismatic goat.
Returning with 10 all-new episodes, the second season of Teenage Euthanasia features an impressive lineup of guest voices, including Ann Dowd (Garden State, The Manchurian Candidate); Chris Redd (Saturday Night Live); H. Jon Benjamin (Archer, Bob’s Burgers); J. Smith Cameron (Succession); Janelle James (Abbott Elementary); Jinkx Monsoon (RuPaul’s Drag Race); Joe Pera (Joe Pera Talks With You); Kieran Culkin (Succession); Lori Tan Chinn (Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens, Orange is the New Black); Sophia Bush (One Tree Hill); Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Office Hours, Killing It); and Ziwe Fumudoh (Ziwe).
Series co-creators Alissa Nutting and Alyson Levy had this to say in perfect unison, “Teenage Euthanasia sees and celebrates the troubled teens, the bimbos, the weirdos, the death-positives, the crybabies, the un-showered, the voluntarily single mommies, and the men who are scared of baseball. We love you.”
