After his work on Regular Show, everyone was excited to see what creator J.G. Quintel had up his sleeves next. We got a trailer for his show Close Enough two years ago, but the show had ended up in limbo for a while. The great news is, it’s finally coming out and we have HBO to thank for it.
As announced by Quintel himself, Close Enough is going to hit HBO Max later in June. Here’s the post:

We don’t really know the specifics of how the show went into hiatus, but it was said that TBS had cut their animation block after the scandal with Louis C.K. The good news is, Quintel was able to strike a deal with HBO, and now everyone is excited to see the release of his next show.
Here’s the description of the show:
A stoner couple in their 20s deal with life situations in LA with their friends such as raising a daughter, fighting a loose possum in their apartment, and outrunning giant mutant spiders, all the regular things to worry about in early adulthood.
If you’ve watched Regular Show, you’ll know that Quintel has a very surreal imagination, and we should probably expect to see more of it when it comes to Close Enough. With RS already being questionable in what they consider kid-friendly, I’m very excited to see Quintel let loose on his creativity and have the characters deal with things like drugs, sex, and parenthood.
Close Enough finally premieres on HBO Max on July 9.
