Are you a fan of Adult Swim's animated comedy Smiling Friends but are as confused as can be about the season 2 episode release schedule? Welcome to the club! Have a seat, Show Snob is here to help! Below, we share all the details you need to know.

The release schedule for Smiling Friends season 2 is not the same that season 1 followed. Part of the reason why the animated series was such a hit when it first premiered, at least in my opinion, was because of its binge-watch model. All (but one episode) dropped on Jan. 10, 2022, on Adult Swim, which you can stream on Max. Season 2, however, did not premiere all episodes in one day.

Smiling Friends follows a group of employees who enjoy spreading happiness to those who need it and call their hotline. The group of friends includes Pim (a true optimist), Charlie (known for his attitude issues), Allan (dry and expressionless), Glep (lazy yet full of emotions), and their eccentric boss Mr. Boss. The bite-size stories are told using a variety of animation techniques, including CGI and stop motion. This is definitely one of the most unique shows you've ever seen and is criminally underrated. Watch it and spread the word! On what silly and fun adventures is Smiling Friends taking us on this season? Season 2 premiered on April 1. But if you have not tuned in, you are only three episodes behind, so there's plenty of time to catch up!
