The long-awaited second season of the comedy "The Other Two" is on the way to a new home at HBO Max and the images promise to pick up where the hilarious show left off.

As reported Entertainment Weekly, Season 2 of the show is set to premiere Aug. 26 with two episodes on HBO after the show's first season originally aired on Comedy Central in 2019.

"With the show's new home comes new adventures, and season 2 will double the challenges and burden for Cary (Drew Tarver) and Brooke (Heléne Yorke), when the new daytime talk show hosted by their mother, Pat (Molly Shannon), becomes an instant sensation," EW reports.

Co-creator Chris Kelly told EW that the big story in season 2 is "Pat is famous now."

"So what does it feel like to toggle back and forth between playing second fiddle to your 15-year-old brother and your 52-year-old mother?" Kelly shared, EW reports.

"We didn't want to fall into the trap of like, 'It's the same as the first season but now their mom's famous!'" said Kelly. "What would we really do if we were them? We would double down. We would be like, 'Absolutely not. I already did a season of this!' "So, in what ways do they double down or try to lean in or make a change so that they don't just repeat history? More specifically, Pat is a very successful daytime host watched by millions, and Cary is also a host — of small niche, gay web videos, The Gay Minute on HuffPost Live or Age Net Worth Feet on E! News Digital. He's now referred to not as 'gay brother' but as 'gay son.'"
