“Animals” Gets Picked Up For A Third Season By HBO Proving That If You Build It They Will Come

Would this count as another dog year?

Ahead of the season two finale airing tonight @ 1130 pm ET/PT only on HBO, the network has officially greenlit a third season of the Phil Matarese / Mike Luciano created series Animals that is expected to air in 2018.

For those that don’t know,  Animals focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to Earth’s least-habitable environment: New York City. Whether it’s lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis, the awkward small talk, moral ambiguity and existential woes of non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own.

The Duplass Brothers are producers and the series is animated by Starburns Industries.

Our Take

A well-deserved pickup as Animals has been pretty damn good in its second season, even with Phil and Mike driving me nuts with occasional silly mistakes in episode structure. That said, last week’s episode was phenomenal, and the finale looks like it will outdo last season’s finale by a mile just by judging by the preview.
