Hulu’s breakout adult animated original comedy Solar Opposites — from two of the twisted minds behind Rick and Morty — is returning to the streamer with eight brand-new episodes on March 26. Solar Opposites originally launched May 8, 2020, becoming Hulu’s most-watched show following the premiere. The announcement promises a second season that is “bigger, funnier, and more opposite than ever before.”
Co-created by Justin Roiland (Rick and Morty) and Mike McMahan (ex-writer’s assistant on Rick and Morty), Solar Opposites centers around a team of four aliens who escape their exploding homeworld only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo (Justin Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty while Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love humans and all their TV, junk food and fun stuff. Their mission: protect the Pupa, a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth.
Produced by 20th Television, the series is exec produced by Roiland, McMahan and Josh Bycel.
