The series is also available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and partners' streaming platforms.

ANIMALS. focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to Earth's least-habitable environment: New York City. For its wide-ranging third season, the genre-bending show visits a humanless, post-apocalyptic Big Apple, blending live-action and animated segments along with the show's usual eclectic casting. It is a wholly unique season of television that has never been done before.

Among the critical raves for the show, Vulture called it "one of the funniest, most idiosyncratic shows on television," noting that the series "always fills a viewer with glee," while Decider described ANIMALS. as an "offbeat hidden gem" and "bitingly funny."

The animation for ANIMALS. was produced with Dan Harmon's Starburns Industries, the studio known for the TV series "Rick & Morty" and the feature film "Anomalisa."
