Wildly popular YouTubers Rhett & Link—aka Rhett McLaughlin and Charles “Link” Neal—have parlayed their much-watched channel into a hit scripted comedy series, Rhett & Link’s Buddy System. The YouTube Red-exclusive show kicks off its second season tomorrow and ahead of that, we have an exclusive clip from the show’s new season, featuring Tony Hale of Veep and Arrested Development fame. Hale plays Glenn, a sad clown who may or may not also be a serial killer … and a gifted turtle whisperer.
Buddy System stars and co-creators Rhett & Link will be accompanied by quite a few other guest stars in season two, including Mayim Bialik (The Big Bang Theory), Leslie Bibb (Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby), Rob Corddry ( Ballers), Mary Lynn Rajskub (24), Michael McDonald (The Heat), Page Kennedy (Blue Mountain State), David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy), Garrett Morris (2 Broke Girls) and Alison Rich (Angie Tribeca).
The show’s season two synopsis is as follows:
Season two of Buddy System seeks to explore Rhett and Link’s powerful friendship in a new and refreshing way by asking the radical question: What if Rhett and Link had never met in 1st grade and went on to become hosts of the popular internet show Good Mythical Morning? The all-new episodes take place in a parallel universe, where instead of growing up together in North Carolina, they meet as adults in Los Angeles after Link is forced to move into Rhett’s empty top bunk. Will they each be able to grow enough of a friendship to form the “buddy system” their counterparts enjoy in this universe?
Steve Pink (Hot Tub Time Machine) directed Buddy System’s second season, with Michael Jamin and Sivert Glarum serving as showrunners. McLaughlin, Neal and Stevie Wynne Levine are executive producers, along with Jason Berger and Amy Laslett of Kids at Play.
All eight episodes of Rhett & Link’s Buddy System season two debut exclusively on YouTube Red at 6 a.m. EST on Wednesday, Nov. 29. Watch Paste’s exclusive clip above.
