Max Drops ‘Clone High’ Trailer and Key Art

Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Bill Lawrence’s animated series refresh, set at a high school for the clones of the greatest minds in history, debuts May 23.

Max (formerly HBO Max) has released an official trailer, key art, and announced the debut date of its highly anticipated animated comedy, Clone High. The show is a modern refresh of the Phil Lord, Christopher Miller, and Bill Lawrence series set at a high school for clones of historical figures, which ran in 2002 on Teletoon in Canada before airing on MTV. Lord and Miller return as executive producers and writers for the show debuting May 23, with two new episodes rolling out every Thursday starting June 1, leading up to the final two episodes on June 22.

In the series, set 20 years after the original experiment was put on ice, Joan, JFK, Abe, and Cleo have been thawed out to resume school at Clone High, with their new clone classmates – all while navigating a new set of cultural norms and overly dramatic teen relationships.

Lord and Miller developed the show in the 1990s while students at Dartmouth; it was thought of as a time capsule of the early 2000s with its loving satire and wry parody of emo culture.

Returning stars include Will Forte as Abe and Nicole Sullivan as Joan; executive producers 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. New voice actors joining the cast include  Ayo Edebiri as Harriet; Mitra Jouhari as Cleo; Vicci Martinez as Frida; Kelvin Yu as Confucius; Neil Casey as Topher Bus; Jana Schmieding as Sacagawea; Sam Richardson as Wesley; Mo Gaffney as Ms. Grumbles; Al Madrigal as Frederico; Danny Pudi as Dr. Neelankavil; Emily Maya Mills as Ethel Merman; Michael Bolton as Michael Bolton; Mandy Moore as Mandy Moore; Ian Ziering as Ian Ziering; Steve Kerr as Steve Kerr; and Jeffrey Muller, Kyle Lau, Dannah Phirman, and Danielle Schneider.

MTV Entertainment Studios produces with executive producers Lord and Miller (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, The Afterparty, 21 Jump Street); Lawrence (Ted Lasso, Shrinking, Scrubs); Erica Rivinoja (South Park, Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm, Last Man on Earth); Erik Durbin (Last Man On Earth, American Dad!, Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23); Judah Miller (Bupkis, Crashing); ShadowMachine’s Corey Campodonico and Alex Bulkley (Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio, Bojack Horseman, Final Space); and Jeff Ingold (Ted Lasso, Shrinking).
