‘Young Love’: Everything We Know So Far About Issa Rae’s Max Series

Kid Cudi, Issa Rae, and the rest of a talented cast and crew are set to capture hearts and minds with their new animated family sitcom, Young Love. In 2020, filmmaker Matthew A. Cherry took home an Academy Award for his work on the critically acclaimed animated short film, Hair Love. The simple, effective, and heart-warming short story saw a father try to do the near-impossible task of fixing up his daughter’s hair in the morning. The short film completely stands on its own as a short and sweet Oscar winner, but now it’s clear that Matthew A. Cherry isn’t done telling stories about this family.

​ Young Love is a sequel to the short film Hair Love. Here’s what you need to know about the animated series coming to Max.
