As per Reddit, the first episode of Smiling Friends season 2 was made available to watch via a special broadcast stream on April 1st, but it was set to private following the end of the stream. The comments from the Reddit post suggest that this episode is highly likely to be released again on May 12, so the fans who didn’t see it haven’t really missed out on much. The aforementioned stunt was part of Adult Swim’s April Fools prank, which also involved putting up a 34-minute clip on YouTube, which is a skit that includes the puppet versions of Smiling Friends characters.

Smiling Friends was created by Michael Cusack and Zack Hadel, and it follows four employees from a small company who are dedicated to spreading happiness. The creators themselves voice the main characters: Charlie, Pim, Allan, and Glep. The first season of the show was well-received, which led to its renewal in February 2022. It was particularly praised for its tone and animation style. The creators have cited Seinfeld and South Park as major influences on the show, and they hope Smiling Friends commands similar appeal in the coming years.

The animation for the show has primarily been done by Princess Bento Studio, a collaboration between Australian media company Princess Pictures and American animation studio Bento Box Entertainment.
