'Close Enough': Release date, plot, cast, trailer, and all you need to know about the animated comedy

Joining the slate of fantasy animated comedies like 'Rick and Morty' and 'Big Mouth', HBO has now armed its upcoming streaming portal HBO Max with 'Close Enough', described as "a hilarious look at the surreal life of a millennial family living with roommates, from J.G. Quintel, creator of the Emmy-winning Regular Show." Here's all you need to know about it!

Release date:

After being greenlit back in May 2017, and originally planned to air on TBS, 'Close Enough' got delayed several times. Further, and TBS's plans for their animated slew to the premiere were also marred by stalled production on 'The Cops', due to Louis C.K.’s sexual misconduct. Finally, on October 29, 2019, the series was announced to premiere instead on HBO Max, and finally, with HBO launching the streaming service this May 27, 'Close Enough' premiers all the way on July 9, while HBO Max's other animated shows debut starting June 25.

According to the official synopsis provided by HBO Max, 'Close Enough' is "a surreal animated comedy about a married couple, their five-year-old daughter, and their two divorced best friends/roommates all living together on the east side of Los Angeles. They’re navigating that transitional time in your 30s when life is about growing up, but not growing old. It’s about juggling work, kids, and pursuing your dreams while avoiding time-traveling snails, stripper clowns, and murderous mannequins. Their life may not be ideal but for now, it's close enough." Sounds like an animated 'FRIENDS', right?

As of now, Quintel himself has been listed as the star of the show. The creator and voice actor has previously also lent his voice for the roles of Mordecai and High Five Ghost, on 'Regular Show'


Two years ago, when 'Close Enough' was still slated to premiere on TBS the network had released a little sneak peek on their official Youtube channel. Check it out here:
