YOLO, the animated series created by one of the minds behind Smiling Friends, is coming back to Adult Swim next year for Season 2 with a new title to boot! Although series creators Zach Hadel and Michael Cusack really took over the world with the surprise debut of Smiling Friends' debut season earlier this year, Cusack had made quite the impact with Adult Swim animation fans before that with the debut of his own series, YOLO: Crystal Fantasy. This had introduced fans to a pair of quirky friends going on outlandish adventures, and now they're coming back for a whole new season!
Adult Swim has officially announced that YOLO will be returning for Season 2, now titled YOLO: Silver Destiny. This second season of the series is scheduled to premiere on Adult Swim on Sunday, January 22, 2023 at midnight and will be streaming on HBO Max the next day. Sarah and Rachel return from the first season to go on even more wacky adventures than the first season, and you can get an idea of what to expect from the new episodes with the first poster for YOLO: Silver Destiny below.

Adult Swim also confirmed that the first two episodes of YOLO: Silver Destiny will be premiering on January 22nd with one episode a week following after. Series creator Michael Cusack teases what's to come for the central duo in Season 2 as such, "In season two we find Sarah and Rachel continuing on their quest for good times and positive vibes. I can't wait for fans to join them on all their strange, new Wollongong adventures as their fantasies become their destinies."
If you wanted to check out YOLO: Crystal Fantasy, you can now find it streaming with HBO Max. Adult Swim further teases the upcoming YOLO: Silver Destiny as such, "YOLO: Silver Destiny begins when a chance encounter at a Sausage Sizzle sets the girls off in pursuit of their destinies – Sarah wants to grow a beautiful garden, and Rachel wants to become a dark Empress. Meanwhile, Lucas the Magnificent embarks on a mysterious new quest to overcome Sarah's repulsion and win her heart."
