The Show has Already Been Renewed for Season 2
Royal Crackers was renewed for a second season even before the first season premiered on Adult Swim. The announcement was made at the end of March. “We’re all super grateful Adult Swim gave us the chance to tell more stories about our characters,” creator and lead star Jason Ruiz said at the time.
“And if you can’t wait to see what happens in season two, then buckle your seatbelts for season one,” he continued. Maile Flanagan, who plays Matt, added, “I can only hope this show runs as long as Naruto does. We’ll be very old people — I’ll be the oldest, of course. But I just think this show has so far to go and I can’t wait to see where it goes.”
“Television has done a great job exploring how families clash over the fate of oil, media or cattle empires, but until now, no one has had the courage to address the savory snack food industry,” said Michael Ouweleen, President of Adult Swim and Cartoon Network.
Royal Crackers Storyline
The show is set in the city of Bakersfield, California. As per the official logline: “Royal Crackers was once the king of snacks, but the empire is crumbling. When the family patriarch, tyrannical company founder Theodore Hornsby ends up in a super coma, the rest of the Hornsbys will take their lack of talent and business acumen and try to make Royal Crackers the success it once was.”
Apart from Ruiz and Flanagan, the voice cast also includes Andrew Santino, Jessica St. Clair, David Gborie, Fred Tatasciore, Stephanie Sheh, and Debra Wilson. Gborie recently talked about the series in an interview and said, “Basically, the message of this show is like, embrace the weirdo that you are, and at the end of the day your family has your back, because they’re probably even weirder than you.”
Royal Crackers episodes 1 through 3 are streaming on HBO Max. Stay tuned for more news and updates.
