Adult Swim had some major announcements to make during the Annecy International Animation Film Festival. The network will be premiering new series including Common Side Effects, Ha Ha You Clowns, and Get Jiro as well as bringing back My Adventures with Superman and Smiling Friends.

Exclusively screened at Annecy International Animation Film Festival, Common Side Effects has been co-created by Joe Bennett and Steve Hely. The show follows Marshall and Frances, with Marshall having discovered a mushroom that can heal almost anything. However, the DEA, big pharma, and international businessmen are out to stop Marshall and Frances from getting the word out about said mushroom.

Produced by Bandera and Green Street Pictures, Common Side Effects will be a half-hour serialized comedic thriller.

Oh My God, Yes! A Series of Extremely Relatable Circumstances has been created by Emmy-nominated writer and executive producer Adele “Supreme” Williams (Netflix’s My Dad the Bounty Hunter). The upcoming quarter-hour comedy follows three best friends navigating the dating world of South Central LA, circa 2102.

The pilot episode, which aired last year, is currently available for your viewing pleasure on Adult Swim’s official website.

A full series pickup has been ordered for Ha Ha You Clowns. The quarter-hour comedy follows “three sweet-natured brothers who, alongside their deeply caring father, embark on various adventures as they bond together in the wake of their mother’s passing.”

Part of Adult Swim’s SMALLS short series, the show has been inspired by suburban family TV shows of the past. Viewers will get to experience a narrative that blends “heartfelt emotions with surreal comedy.”

The show was created by Joe Cappa, whose animated short Ghost Dogs was a 2021 Sundance Festival Official Selection and winner of the Satoshi Kon Award at Fantasia.

Next up we have Get Jiro. The series is based on The New York Times bestselling DC/Vertigo graphic novels by writers Anthony Bourdain and Joel Rose, with artwork by Langdon Foss and Alé Garza. Created by Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka, this one will be a half-hour animated series, set in a not-too-distant future L.A.

In this particular fictional world, master chefs rule the town and people end up killing for a seat at the best restaurants. A mysterious sushi master named Jiro enters a dangerous culinary war and begins to craft his recipe for revenge.

The last series on the list is Super Mutant Magic Academy. It has been created by Emmy-winner J.G. Quintel (Regular Show) and Jillian Tamaki (writer of the comic series). It has been described as a surreal comedy set at a high school where the student body is a mix of mutants and “regular” kids. With transfer student Marsha acting as the viewer’s surrogate, the narrative will explore themes of growing up, navigating relationships, and mutant powers.

As for what’s returning, both My Adventures with Superman and Smiling Friends have been renewed for third seasons.

With how things stand right now, I’m looking forward to watching Get Jiro, Super Mutant Magic Academy, and of course, season three of My Adventures with Superman.
