Ten Year Old Tom has been renewed for a second season on HBO Max.
The announcement was made during a panel discussion at Rooster Teeth’s RTX Festival, a conference dedicated to podcasts, video games and animation.
Created by Steve Dildarian, the animated series is a spiritual successor to the HBO series “The Life and Times of Tim.” The show follows Tom, an ordinary kid who struggles to navigate childhood and is surrounded by well-meaning adults with questionable guidance. The first season consists of 10 episodes of 30 minutes each, each consisting of two parts every quarter of an hour.
Dildarian writes and directs the series as well as the voice of Tom. Byron Powers, Todd Glass, Gillian Jacobs, John Malkovich, and Eddie Patterson toured the main cast, while David Duchovny, Jennifer Coolidge, Natasha Lennon, Mark Prochsch, and Tim Robinson starred during the first season. The second season will see Powers join the series’ writing team.
“Steve Dildrian has always had a unique and charming way of depicting the pain and fun of everyday life,” Billy Wei, senior vice president of comedy and animation at HBO Max, said in a statement. “We love the candor and bewilderment of Tom as he navigates misguided adults around him daily and look forward to more life lessons and accidents in season two.”
Ten Year Old Tom is produced by Work Friends, a joint project of Tomorrow Studios and Nick Weidenfeld. CEO Dildarian produces the series with Weidenfeld, Mart Adelstein, and Becky Clements for Tomorrow Studios. ShadowMachine is animating the series, while ITV Studio handles international distribution.
