It’s official. HBO has confirmed the debut date for Animals. The animated adult comedy series is set to launch its ten-episode season February 8 at 11:30p. Created by Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano and produced by Duplass Brothers, Animals focuses on the downtrodden creatures native to Earth’s least-habitable environment: New York City. Whether it’s lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis, the awkward small talk, moral ambiguity and existential woes of non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own.
