TUBI'S HIT SERIES "THE FREAK BROTHERS" RETURNS FOR A SECOND SEASON, MARKING STREAMER'S FIRST-EVER SERIES RENEWAL

All-Star Voice Cast Includes Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, Pete Davidson, Tiffany Haddish, Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, Andrea Savage, La La Anthony and Rapper ScHoolboy Q

Original Animated Series from WTG Enterprises and Lionsgate to Return to FOX Entertainment's Free Streaming Service with Eight New Episodes

Tubi announced it has renewed the hit comedy, THE FREAK BROTHERS, its first-ever original animated series, for a second season, which is slated to premiere in December 2022. THE FREAK BROTHERS, based on Gilbert Shelton's cult classic underground comic series, delivered nearly twice as many viewers as the #2 series on the platform in its first seven weeks (11/14 - 1/3). THE FREAK BROTHERS will return with eight new episodes. The series' all-star voice cast includes Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, Pete Davidson, and Tiffany Haddish. The series is produced by WTG Enterprises and distributed by global content leader Lionsgate (NYSE: LGF.A, LGF.B).

"We're excited to bring back our favorite trio of Freaks - and their trippy pet Kitty - for another wild season," said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. "THE FREAK BROTHERS has received overwhelming reception since its debut in November and has been a key driver in our growing adult comedy offering, cementing Tubi as a destination for adult animation."

"We're thrilled to embark on another even more freaky trip with Adam Lewinson, Rachel Koehler and the fantastic teams at Tubi, FOX and Lionsgate. And we're most excited for our fans to twist one up and enjoy Season Two," said executive producer Courtney Solomon.

"The success of Season One helped lay the foundation for this awesome new 'Freak Brothers' audience, and Season Two will be full of hilarity and surprises for our Super Freak army," said executive producer Mark Canton.

"We're pleased to continue our 'trip' with FOX and Tubi on a hilarious second season of the Freak Brothers," said Lionsgate President of Domestic Television Distribution Ryan Lowerre. "With a fresh and inventive spin for their second season, Freewheelin' Franklin, Fat Freddy, Phineas T. Phreakers and Kitty are ready to continue to grow the show's audience."

Today's renewal of THE FREAK BROTHERS highlights the platform's continued dedication to expanding its adult comedy collection and super-serving its audience with fan-favorite original content. THE FREAK BROTHERS chronicles the escapades of a trio of stoner anti-establishment characters and their cat who wake up from a 50-year nap after smoking a magical strain of weed in 1969, and must adjust to life with a new family in present-day San Francisco.

THE FREAK BROTHERS is based on comic book legend Gilbert Shelton's "The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers." Critiquing the Establishment, while satirizing counterculture at the same time, the comics sold more than 45 million copies in 16 languages and was hailed by The Comics Journal as "One of the 100 Greatest Comics of the Century." Starburns Industries and Pure Imagination Studios, the studios behind "Rick & Morty" and "The Simpsons: Brick Like Me," handled the animation for Season One.

THE FREAK BROTHERS is executive-produced by Courtney Solomon ("AFTER," "Mr. Church," Cake") and Mark Canton (STARZ's "POWER UNIVERSE," "300," "Den of Thieves"), along with award-winning showrunners Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland ("King of the Hill," "American Dad"). Woody Harrelson, Tiffany Haddish, Pete Davidson, Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, Gilbert Shelton and Manfred Mroczkowski also serve as executive producers on the series.
