It’s on, my friends. The Harold and Kumar animated series is on. We’ve known that an animated series based on the comedy trilogy was in the works, with John Cho and Kal Penn returning to provide the voices for the titular stoner duo. This week, the cast reportedly reunited for the show’s first table read.
The gathering included Cho, Penn, and several returning cast members, including Dave Kumrholtz, Eddie Kaye Thomas, and Paula Garces, and producer/creators Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg. They tweeted photos from the table read, which was described as “insane, surreal and hilarious.” Also: “wildly inappropriate.”
I would expect nothing less from an animated Harold and Kumar.
