The streamer shared a first look at Phil Lord, Chris Miller and Bill Laurence’s reimaged 2002-2003 animated comedy about a high school for clones of historical figures; Will Forte and Nicole Sullivan return to the series with an A-list line-up that includes Michael Bolton, Mandy Moore, Ian Ziering, and Steve Kerr as themselves – coming this spring.
In February 2021, when HBO Max first announced the two-season order for a reimagined Clone High, the Phil Lord, Chris Miller, and Bill Lawrence show that ran on Teletoon and MTV in 2002-2003, all we could do was wait. The wait’s not over, but now at least we get a peek at what’s to come! The streamer has released first-look images and announced the cast of the animated comedy coming this spring from MTV Entertainment Studios.
Clone High is set at a high school for clones of historical figures. After a high school that was secretly being run as an elaborate military experiment to clone the greatest minds in history was put on ice, the clones have been thawed out - 20 years later - to resume the experiment with new clone classmates – all while navigating a new set of cultural norms and overly dramatic teen relationships.
The show’s stars Will Forte (Abe) and Nicole Sullivan (Joan) took the stage at WonderCon last week, joined by executive producers Chris Miller (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, The Afterparty, 21 Jump Street), Erica Rivinoja (South Park, Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm, Last Man on Earth), and Erik Durbin (Last Man On Earth, American Dad!I, Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23), to debut a first look at the new series followed by a moderated Q&A panel, as well as to reveal the new cast.
Returning stars include Forte and Sullivan; Lord as Scudworth and Miller as JFK and Mr. B; Christa Miller as “Candide Sampson; Donald Faison as George Washington Carver; and Judah Miller as Scangrade.
