‘Ten Year Old Tom’ Renewed For Season 2 By HBO Max – Deadline

EXCLUSIVE: HBO Max has ordered a second season of adult animated series Ten-year-old Tom, from Steve Dildarian, animation veteran Nick Weidenfeld and Tomorrow Studios. The extension will be announced today at Rooster Teeth’s RTX festival in Austin.

Created, produced, directed and written by The life and times of Tim‘s Dildarian, Ten-year-old Tom follows the misadventures of an average child as he struggles with questionable guidance from the well-meaning adults around him. Being a kid is hard enough for Tom, but when bad influences seem to lurk around every corner – from contentious parents and drug-dealing bus drivers to school administrators wanting to sleep with his mother – it’s downright impossible. While the adults in Tom’s life certainly mean well, they just fail to lead by example.

Cancellation/Renewal Scorecard: TV Shows Ended or Continued in 2021-22 Season

In Season 1, Dildarian starred as Tom alongside Byron Bowers, Todd Glass, Gillian Jacobs, John Malkovich and Edi Patterson, with guest appearances from David Duchovny, Jennifer Coolidge, Natasha Lynnne, Mark Proksch, Tim Robinson and more. Bowers, who voices Nelson, will also serve as a writer for Season 2.

“Steve Dildarian has always had a unique and charming way of portraying the pain and hilarity of everyday life,” said Billy Wee, SVP Comedy & Animation at HBO Max. “We love Tom’s sincerity and bewilderment as he navigates the misguided adults around him on a daily basis, and we look forward to more life lessons and mishaps in Season 2.”

The innovation for Ten-year-old Tom leaves HBO Max’s other current adult animated comedy, Good enough, waiting to hear about his future. The streamer has a handful of upcoming animated series, including the clone high reboot and sci-fi drama Scavengers rule.

Ten-year-old Tom is produced by Work Friends, a joint venture between Weidenfeld (The Boondocks, Rick & Morty) and Tomorrow Studios (an ITV Studios partnership). Executive producers include Dildarian, Marty Adelstein (Please enter the correct one) and Becky Clements (snow piercer) for Tomorrow Studios and Weidenfeld for Work Friends. The animation is further produced at ShadowMachine. ITV Studios handles the international distribution.
