J.G. Quintel is the man behind Cartoon Network's Regular Show, and two years ago, we saw the first teaser for his next show, Close Enough. Close Enough had never managed to come out on TBS but the good news is, it's going to be released on HBO Max.
Here's the post from Quintel himself:
I have to say, I'm very excited for the release of this show. I was already hyped up for it when it was first announced, and was one of the more disappointed fans when it was said that it won't release. We don't know exactly what happened behind the scenes, but it's great that Quintel finally found a platform where we can check out the show.
With Regular Show usually teetering the line between kid-friendly and adult-oriented, it's going to be great to see Quintel go wild with the more mature Close Enough. Besides the family drama, we can expect the show to tackle things like drugs, sex, and adult life. I don't exactly know what to expect, and that's kind of the beauty of it. If Regular Show was able to be as crazy as it was with a PG rating, Close Enough should have the kookiness ramped up to 11.
For now, HBO Max is set to launch later this month. Though I'm against the streaming wars, you can't help but admit that HBO has managed to land some solid original content. Not to mention they also have a catalogue of impeccable material from The Sopranos to Game of Thrones.
Close Enough starts streaming on HBO Max on July 9.
