New ‘Animals’ Trailer Proves That Animals Can Be Obnoxious New Yorkers, Too


The new trailer for HBO’s upcoming animated series Animals confirms what some of us may have already suspected: our pets are just as weird and obnoxious as we are.

Created by Phil Matarese and Mike Lucia and shepherded by Togetherness co-creators the Duplass brothers, Animals features a collection of animated shorts about the secret lives of New York animals, ranging from pet dogs, to obnoxious insects, to the city’s least lovable mascot, the pigeon. It also seems to get a little bloody, but that’s the animal kingdom for ya.

If the show’s premise doesn’t get your attention, its cast will. Ellie Kemper, Adam Scott, Marc Maron, Wanda Sykes, Kumail Nanjiani, Molly Shannon, and Jessica Chastain are just some of the many stars lending their voice to the series.

Animals premieres Friday, February 5 at 11:30pm on HBO.
