The clones of Clone High are no longer on ice. The upcoming animated series dropped an official trailer today, and it looks like things are picking up right where the previous iteration of the show left off. (Albeit it twenty years later, anyway.)
Check out the trailer for Clone High below.
The original Clone High series premiered back in the early 2000s. It followed a group of high schoolers who are the product of a secret government experiment: the genetic clones of famous historical figures.
Now, fans will get a modern refresh of the animated series. Twenty years after the original experiment was put on ice, Joan, JFK, Abe, and Cleo have been thawed out to resume school with their new clone classmates – all while navigating a new set of cultural norms and overly dramatic teen relationships.
Several stars from the original series will return to Clone High, including Will Forte as Abe and Nicole Sullivan as Joan; executive producers Phil Lord as Scudworth and Chris Miller as JFK and Mr. B; Christa Miller as Candide Sampson; Donald Faison as George Washington Carver; and Judah Miller as Scangrade. The new voice cast also includes Ayo Edebiri as Harriet; Mitra Jouhari as Cleo; Vicci Martinez as Frida; Kelvin Yu as Confucius; Neil Casey as Topher Bus; Jana Schmieding as Sacagawea; Sam Richardson as Wesley; Mo Gaffney as Ms. Grumbles; Al Madrigal as Frederico; Danny Pudi as Dr. Neelankavil; Emily Maya Mills as Ethel Merman; Michael Bolton as Michael Bolton, Mandy Moore as Mandy Moore, Ian Ziering as Ian Ziering; Steve Kerr as Steve Kerr; and Jeffrey Muller, Kyle Lau, Dannah Phirman, and Danielle Schneider.
Clone High will also be one of the first shows to officially debut as a “Max Original.” (In case you missed it, HBO Max will soon rebrand to simply Max.)
Clone High premieres with two episodes on Tuesday, May 23 on Max. Two additional episodes will drop weekly on Thursdays starting June 1, until the final episodes of the season on June 22.
