Rhett McLaughlin and Link Neal‘s most ambitious scripted project is back. The iconic YouTuber duo, known commonly as Rhett & Link, is at the heart of season two of Buddy System, which is now available on YouTube Red.
After plotting revenge against their “co-ex-girlfriend” in the first season of Buddy System, Rhett & Link are using their second go-around to start anew. Their show’s sophomore effort imagines a universe in which they never met and, therefore, never became creative collaborators. In their place, a duo named Brett & Fink has risen to YouTube stardom. In the premiere episode of season two, Rhett & Link move in together and begin to build their friendship, in spite of their many differences. In a song, Rhett explains that he is a sophisticate, while Link paints himself as a common man.
The premiere episode also showcases a few of the well-known actors who will appear in season two of Buddy System. Original SNL cast member Garrett Morris appears as Rhett’s landlord, while The Big Bang Theory‘s Mayim Bialik rents Link a chamber in a morgue.
With its blend of goofy comedy and amusing original songs, Buddy System has cemented itself as one of YouTube Red’s best series, and its second season is primed to continue spreading good vibes. Eight new episodes of the show can be found on YouTube’s paywalled subscription service, which costs $9.99 per month.
