‘Solar Opposites’: Doing What We Never Thought They’d Let Us Do
Solar Opposites, from 20th Century Fox Television, has become a significant hit for Hulu; the show was picked up for a third 12-episode season. The 2D animated series was originally greenlit with a two-season order. Its May 8 debut was Hulu’s most-watched original comedy premiere to date and was Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes. The show is co-created by Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan, who also serve as writers and executive producers; Josh Bycel executive produces as well. Justin Roiland, Thomas Middleditch, Sean Giambrone and Mary Mack will reprise their roles.
The series features a team of four aliens who escaped their exploding home world, only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They have a shrink ray, gear to fabricate new best friends, and a penchant for coaxing bloody mayhem out of even the smallest human cultural ironies. The four are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo (Roiland) and Yumyulack (Giambroni) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty, while Terry (Middleditch) and Jesse (Mack) love humans and all their TV, junk food, and fun stuff. Their mission: protect the Pupa, a living supercomputer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth.
