What’s in store for the season two finale of HBO’s Animals? The network’s released details on the upcoming May 2017 episodes which include episode 10, the season’s final episode. The animated adult series was created by writer/directors/executive producers Phil Matarese and Mike Luciano, with Mark Duplass and Jay Duplass also executive producing.

The Plot: New York City, Earth’s least habitable environment, is home to a host of downtrodden creatures. Whether it’s lovelorn rats, gender-questioning pigeons or aging bedbugs in the midst of a midlife crisis, the awkward small talk, moral ambiguity and existential woes of these non-human urbanites prove startlingly similar to our own.
