Ten Year Old Tom Season 2 Potential Release Date
As of July 5, 2022, HBO Max has not yet confirmed the exact release date of Ten Year Old Tom Season 2. On the bright side, it appears that the show’s early renewal will result in the timely scheduling and production of the forthcoming season. As the post by Aaron Sagers (above), it is confirmed that the filming of season two has already started so the viewers are hopeful that they will get to watch the next season soon.
However, based on the pattern of the season one release dates, we may anticipate that the premiere date for the second season would be sometime around late 2022—probably sometime in or around the month of September. Furthermore, we would like to emphasize that at this point, everything is just conjecture. Fans should thus be patient because the network will confirm these facts in the upcoming months, so they should keep a watch on it.
Ten Year Old Tom Season 2 Plot
According to Deadline, created, produced, directed, and written by The Life and Times of Tim‘s Dildarian, Ten Year Old Tom follows the misadventures of an average kid as he contends with questionable guidance from the well-meaning grownups around him.
Being a kid is hard enough for Tom, but when bad influences seem to lurk around every corner – from litigious parents and drug-dealing bus drivers to school administrators who want to sleep with his mom – it’s downright impossible. While the adults in Tom’s life certainly mean well, they just can’t manage to lead by example.
In Season 1, Dildarian starred as Tom alongside Byron Bowers, Todd Glass, Gillian Jacobs, John Malkovich, and Edi Patterson, with guest appearances by David Duchovny, Jennifer Coolidge, Natasha Lynonne, Mark Proksch, Tim Robinson, and more. Bowers, who voices Nelson, also will serve as a writer for Season 2.
“Steve Dildarian has always had a unique and charming way of depicting the pain and hilarity of everyday life,” said Billy Wee, SVP Comedy & Animation at HBO Max. “We love the sincerity and bewilderment of Tom as he navigates the misguided adults around him daily, and we are looking forward to more life lessons and mishaps in Season 2.”
