Clone High: When will it premiere?
It’s been nearly two years since HBO Max ordered two seasons of the Phil Lord and Christopher Miller production, and thanks to Miller, we’re one step closer to a specific release date. As per recent updates, it seems like the animation is still ongoing, as no update about completion has been disclosed yet. But if we have to speculate, the first season will make its debut sometime in the mid-to-late 2023 range with the same premiere time as other shows on the streaming service, which is at midnight PT (3 a.m. ET).
Any confirmation about the release date of the second season seems way too early to reveal, but it can premiere this year if the creators want to; we just have to wait and see. So, in order to receive updates on when the new series premieres, interested viewers can also enable notifications on HBO Max. Additionally, while celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the show’s original debut, Miller shared a GIF of a clone coming off ice courtesy of a blow-dryer, quoting, “20 years ago today our first show, Clone High, debuted. Seems about time to unfreeze the clones. They’ll be fully thawed out in 2023 on HBOMax.” Take a look at the announcement below:
