Adult Swim is always down to liven up its fanbase, and the late-night block did just that last night. If you didn’t keep up, the network went live with Smiling Friends yesterday and proceeded to air the entire season out of nowhere. But if you missed it, don’t fret! Smiling Friends is coming to HBO Max, and we know when the series will land.
The update comes straight from Adult Swim itself on Twitter. The program’s official page answered a fan who wanted to know when they could stream the series. It turns out Smiling Friends will join HBO Max this February, so you can mark your calendars right now!
In a world struggling with a pandemic and divisive politics it’s increasingly difficult to see right vs wrong through the crippling fog of disinformation. So it’s comforting to know that #smilingfriends will be available February 9th on @hbomax https://t.co/vYddg0nyMH

“In a world struggling with a pandemic and divisive politics it’s increasingly difficult to see right vs wrong through the crippling fog of disinformation. So it’s comforting to know that Smiling Friends will be available February 9th on HBO Max,” the page shared.
For those who aren’t familiar with Smiling Friends, well – the series did just premiere the other day in full. Season one debuted on January 10th after a pilot was shown back in April 2020. Initially, Smiling Friends was set to premiere in 2021, but production issues set it back to this year.
As for the show itself, Smiling Friends tells the story of a small company called Smiling Friends Incorporated. The business strives to make its clients happy, so the show follows several employees such as Pim and Charlie during work. The pair take on various calls and assignments to make others happy, so if you need a feel-good marathon, Smiling Friends will suit you just fine.
