Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland is hitting Hulu with a new adult animated series. The Solar Opposites teaser shows a family of aliens trying to fit in amongst all of Earth’s yucky, nasty humans and their ensuing misadventures.
Roiland created and executive produces the series with fellow Rick and Morty alum and former head writer of the series Mike McMahan. On the casting side, Roiland is doubling up on voicing duty as both Terry and Korvo, and leads a stacked talent lineup including Thomas Middleditch, Mary Mack, Ken Marino, Rainn Wilson, Tiffany Haddish, Phil LaMarr, Christina Hendricks, Andy Daly, Sean Giambrone, and Alan Tudyk.
Check out the Solar Opposites teaser below – but just try to stay patient a little longer. The show hits Hulu, with the entire first season, on May 8.
Co-created by Justin Roiland (Rick & Morty) and Mike McMahan (ex-writer’s assistant on Rick & Morty), Solar Opposites centers around a team of four aliens who escape their exploding home world 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.
