The Freak Brothers is coming: after a period of radio silence, it has been announced that the animated series has completed production on its eight-episode first season. The original greenlight announcement set the show to debut in early 2020, but little had been divulged about the show’s status since then.
In 2019, we reported that the show was in development via WTG Enterprises, who own the IP of the original comic, The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers. The underground comic was created by Gilbert Shelton in 1968. The tv series centers on the three stoner leads of the comic who, after smoking a magical strain of weed in 1969, time-travel to 2020, bringing their 1960s San Francisco attitude with them.
The three leads will be voiced by Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, and Pete Davidson. Andrea Savage and La La Anthony have been unveiled as new additions to the cast, which also includes Tiffany Haddish, Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, rapper Schoolboy Q, and veteran voice actor Phil LaMarr.
