Adult Swim definitely surprised fans with a marathon of Smiling Friends' entire season premiered without warning! One of the many reasons fans love to keep an eye on the famous programming block is that sometimes the programming can be shaken up without much warning, and this leads to some fun surprises that fans need to see live. Adult Swim's most anticipated new animated series of the year, Smiling Friends, made its premiere on the block last Sunday evening but while many had expected to only see the first two episodes, Adult Swim ended up secretly airing the entire season!
YOLO Crystal Fantasy creator Michael Cusack and Zach Hadel's Smiling Friends has been one of the most requested new series coming from Adult Swim ever since the pilot episode premiered during the April Fool's Day 2020 broadcast (yet another surprise shake up to the programming schedule), and fans were delighted to check out the first of the new series' episodes on Sunday, January 9th. But after the first two, the series just kind of kept going.
#SmilingFriends’ entire season premiered on #AdultSwim tonight and I can’t wait to watch it all over again lol what a hit pic.twitter.com/6CgNP7YN2Q— Nick Valdez (@Valdezology) January 10, 2022
Adult Swim did not list the entire series as airing in their programming, so fans who flipped the channel or didn't set their DVRs missed out on the special marathon you had to catch live. Luckily. Smiling Friends is coming to HBO Max next month and fans can also check out the series' run on Adult Swim's official website (with a cable subscription). Read on to see what fans are saying about Smiling Friends' big secret premiere, and Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
