The novelty from James Quintel is an 18+ rated cartoon. The project is intended for people over the age of 25. In the modern era, people of this age as adults are just beginning to grow up, which is often accompanied by complexities and comic situations. The author perfectly demonstrates an understanding of the characters, which is what makes the show popular. At the center of the story are Joshua and Emily. They are a married couple with a child who are learning how to behave as adults. Their adventures will continue in a new season whose release date is in 2022.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
Joshua is an aspiring computer game developer. His wife Emily works as an assistant at a food supplement corporation. The couple has a young daughter, but they have absolutely no idea how to properly raise her, because often the characters still have their inner children talking, which complicates their family life and child-rearing. In the first season, viewers could get to know the main characters, where the author showed that being children at 25 years old in today’s world is normal.
In the second season, the heroes had to understand that they are not forced to give up their own hobbies and hobbies, but also to run away from important decisions is impossible and even dangerous. The release date of season 3 of the series Close Enough will take place in 2022. In it, viewers will continue to watch the characters grow up.

Joshua and Emily are not the only characters in the story. They have friends who, unlike the main characters, have not had time to create families and still act like teenage slackers. Through secondary characters, the author of the project examines other typical problems of modern times – shopaholism, addiction to smartphones and the Internet, toxicity in friendships, and so on. The author will continue to explore these themes in the third season. In the summer of 2021 James Quintel announced the completion of the script for new episodes, and their release date is scheduled for 2022.
