Regular Show played an important role in ushering in a new era for Cartoon Network. With shows like Adventure Time and The Amazing World of Gumball, the series introduced a more sophisticated style of animation to the children’s television market, as well as a number of gags that were only fully understood by adults.
A good example of this is the television show Regular Show, which would regularly make references to popular culture from the 1980s and 1990s, as well as employing a large number of double entendres. Close Enough, the next effort from creator J.G. Quintel, has done away with the double entendres in favor of graphic adult comedy that you definitely don’t want your children to be exposed to.
The first two seasons are now available on HBO Max, and if you grew up with Regular Program and its unique brand of humor, then this is unquestionably the show you should watch right now.
A similar structure can be found in Close Enough, where episodes tend to start off pretty normal with traditional comedy plots before devolving into complete lunacy when The Matrix-style machines and alternative realities are introduced into the mix.
Regular Show ran for eight seasons and 261 episodes, and it’s not difficult to imagine Close Enough reaching the same heights as its predecessor. Here’s everything we know about Close Enough season 3 so far, based on what we’ve seen so far.
Close Enough Season 3 Release Date
Due to the favorable reception, the show has received and the expanding number of fans, it is reasonable to assume that HBO Max will want much more Close Enough in the years to come. This tweet from Bill Oakley, who is the show’s creator, stated, “Season 2 of Close Enough premieres on HBO Max on February 25th and, furthermore, I am pleased to finally announce that I am now Head Writer and Executive Producer for the upcoming Season 3!” Before the second season was even released, the show was renewed for a third season.
Fans of the program should not have to wait too long for the new season, despite the fact that no release date has been confirmed yet. Season 2 was released very fast following season 1, which was released on the platform on July 9, 2020. Season 1 was released on July 9, 2020. That suggests there was just a seven-month lag time between the two events in question. It would make sense for season 3 to premiere in September or October of 2021, assuming that the show maintains its current schedule.

Close Enough Season 3 Cast
We anticipate the primary cast to remain intact for season 3, which includes the return of Josh (J.G. Quintel), Emily (Gabrielle Walsh), and Candice (Candice Cameron Bure) as the core of the show’s central family (Jessica DiCicco). They’ll be accompanied by their housemates Bridgette (Kimiko Glenn) and Alex (Alexander Skarsgard) (Jason Mantzoukas). In addition to their zany friends, Candice’s primary school teacher Mr. Timothy (Danielle Brooks) and Pearle (Danielle Brooks) frequently accompany them on their odd outings (John Early).
Beyond the main cast, the show has attracted an impressive roster of guest voice actors who have appeared in various capacities throughout the show’s run, with some of the biggest names landing roles on the show including “Weird” Al Yankovic, Jane Lynch, Keith David, Rachel Bloom, Nicole Byer and Tom Kenny, among many others. It is reasonable to anticipate that new names will appear in the third season, as a slew of new characters will be introduced from one episode to the next.
Close Enough season 3 Plotline
In the conventional comedy structure, each episode tends to have its own distinct storyline thread, with little emphasis placed on a larger story arc that spans the whole season.
As a result, what frequently happens is that one of the major characters goes through a crisis, which is typically tied to growing older, raising a kid, navigating new relationships, and other issues that today’s millennials can relate to Once these typical concerns have been thrown for a loop, they are thrown for another loop when they take an unexpected turn into the ludicrous with twists that are frequently based on science fiction or fantasy.
Season 3 is expected to follow the same format as the previous seasons, with endings that convey words of wisdom for the audience to take away, such as the recognition that it’s vital to put your smartphone down every now and again to recharge. On the other hand, other episodes are just amusing parodies of classics such as Die Hard and Goodfellas.
Our best assumption is that HBO Max will allow creator J.G. Quintel to continue producing this ridiculous animation for as long as he desires.
