In addition to premiering JJ Villard's Fairy Tales this month, Adult Swim is also inviting viewers to experience the surreal horror of and bizarre comedy of another animated anthology, The Shivering Truth, which will kick off its second season on May 10th right before JJ Villard's Fairy Tales.

To get viewers ready for the insane scares to come, we've been provided with the official trailer for The Shivering Truth Season 2, featuring a voice cast that includes Kyle Mooney, Chris Elliott, and Alia Shawkat:

Synopsis: "THE SHIVERING TRUTH" is a delicately crafted, darkly surreal anthology comedy. Each episode is a miniature propulsive omnibus cluster bomb of painfully riotous daymares all dripping with the orange goo of dream logic. A series of loosely linked emotional parables about stories within tales that crawled out of the deepest caverns of your unconscious mind and became lovingly animated in breath-slapping stop motion -- in other words, it is the TRUTH (squared).

This season features the voices of Kate Berlant, Mike Birbiglia, Wyatt Cenac, Julia Davis, Chris Elliott, Will Forte, Josh Gad, Miranda July, Jason Mantzoukas, Kyle Mooney, Griffin Newman, Ego Nwodim, Alia Shawkat, and Tierra Whack, along with show creator and writer, Vernon Chatman. The quarter-hour animated series is directed by Chatman and Cat Solen. Executive Produced by PFFR (Chatman, Alyson Levy, and John Lee) with Solen. Co-Executive Produced by Lisa M. Thomas. The animation studio is HouseSpecial.
