Close Enough, a surreal take on transitioning from twentysomething to thirtysomething, revolves around a married couple juggling such everyday challenges as parenthood, friendship, ham theft, stripper clowns and choosing the right day care.
The comedy originated at TBS where it was ordered to series in 2017. It eventually migrated to HBO Max where Close Enough debuted in July 2020, with Season 1 earning 100% on Rotten Tomatoes and the series developing a cult following.
The cancellation of Close Enough comes on the heals of HBO Max’s renewal for Ten Year Old Tom, which is the streamer’s sole current adult animated comedy series. HBO Max has a handful of upcoming animated shows, including the Clone High reboot and sci-fi drama Scavengers Reign, and several projects in development, including Uptown Bodega.
