Australia’s rowdy party girls are back looking for fun times, new experiences, positive vibes, and hot guys in the bizarre town of Wollongong; created by ‘Smiling Friends’ Michael Cusack, ‘YOLO’ Season 2 is coming in January 2023.
Adult Swim is bringing back our favorite rowdy Aussie party girls, Sarah (Sarah Bishop) and Rachel (Todor Manojlovic), still looking for fun times, new experiences, positive vibes, and hot guys in the bizarre town of Wollongong. Following the raucous success of Michael Cusack’s 2D animated series, YOLO: Crystal Fantasy, YOLO Season 2, aka, YOLO: Silver Destiny, comes to Adult Swim on January 15, hitting HBO Max the next day.
YOLO: Silver Destiny begins when a chance encounter at a Sausage Sizzle sets the girls off in pursuit of their destinies - Sarah wants to grow a beautiful garden, and Rachel wants to become a dark Empress. Meanwhile, Lucas the Magnificent embarks on a mysterious new quest to overcome Sarah’s repulsion and win her heart.
Cusack explained what’s to come, sharing, "In Season 2, we find Sarah and Rachel continuing on their quest for good times and positive vibes. I can’t wait for fans to join them on all their strange, new Wollongong adventures as their fantasies become their destinies.”
Adult Swim notes that YOLO: Crystal Fantasy regularly won the half-hour across basic cable among adults 18-24, 18-34, and 18-49. Furthermore, new episodes of the series beat the key late-night competition by mostly double and triple digits with those same adult demos.
The first two episodes of YOLO: Silver Destiny will premiere back-to-back on January 15 at Midnight, with new episodes premiering weekly.
Laura DiMaio produces the quarter-hour animated series with Paul Moran as line producer. Executive producers include Cusack, Mike Cowap, and Emma Fitzsimons. The series is produced by Princess Pictures with animation services provided by Monkeystack.
Cusack is the co-creator of Adult Swim’s popular Smiling Friends and Rick and Morty: Bushworld Adventures. He’s also working on a new series for Hulu with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland called Koala Man, which stars Hugh Jackman.
