If you thought the iconic amphibian duo was homoerotic before, take a look at what they're getting up to now.

Frog and Toad is back for a second season, and it's only getting cuter.

Season two of the Apple TV+ show premiered today, bringing Arnold Lobel's award-winning children's book series back to families around the world. And if you thought the iconic amphibian duo was a queer love story before, take a look at them now.

Frog and Toad season one was nominated for a Children’s and Family Emmy Award last year, and was named a Common Sense Top TV Pick of 2023. It follows the beloved characters in "new tales of true love and friendship" for all ages.

"Frog is a frog. Toad is a toad. They have a lot in common... but they are also very different," the show's synopsis reads. "Frog and Toad are best friends who know that the true secret to friendship is not only enjoying the things you have in common, but embracing the things that make you different. Since our differences are what makes us special, Frog and Toad celebrate what makes them unique!"

The series stars Academy Award winner Nat Faxon (Our Flag Means Death) and Emmy Award nominee Kevin Michael Richardson (The Simpsons, Family Guy) as the titular characters Frog and Toad. Season two will feature appearances from celebrities like Tom Kenny, Yvette Nicole Brown, and queer comedy icons Margaret Cho, Fortune Feimster, and Cole Escola.

In the clip below, Frog and Toad go swimming, but Toad isn't so happy with how he looks in his swimsuit, telling his friends to "go away" because he's embarassed.
