Solar Opposites Interview - Justin Roiland

The first season of Solar Opposites is now available to binge on Hulu. If you’ve already worked your way through the series, then you know it’s a brilliant animated comedy that has some of what makes Rick and Morty great, but mixes it with the classic family sitcom in a way that is somehow both insanely twisted and charmingly lighthearted.

Since I loved the show so much, I was glad to speak with series co-creator Justin Roiland, who also co-created Rick and Morty, to discuss how working on Solar Opposites with co-creator Mike McMahan is different than working with Dan Harmon, how they keep track of sci-fi gadgets, the challenge of doing a more serialized series, whether we’ll get a plush of The Pupa, and more. You can read our full interview with Justin Roiland below, but be aware of spoilers for the first season of Solar Opposites. Read More »

Solar Opposites Interview

The first season of the new animated series Solar Opposites recently debuted on Hulu. Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and series writer Mike McMahan have teamed up for the new show about a group of aliens who were forced to abandoned their destroyed homeworld and have been sent to Earth to wait for a living super computer called The Pupa to evolve and terraform the planet, leaving them to live suburban lives in America.

Solar Opposites is a laugh riot, as you can read in my review, so I was very eager to talk to co-creator Mike McMahan about the inception of the show, some of its influences, the surprising and shocking subplot, and what’s in store for the future of the animated series. You can read our full Solar Opposites interview below, but beware of major spoilers for the end of the show if you haven’t yet sat down to watch all eight episodes of the first season Read More »

Rick and Morty Future Seasons Release Plans

Rick and Morty has had an inconsistent journey when it comes to new seasons arriving on Adult Swim. It took a year and a half to get season three on air in 2017 after the second season finale in 2015, and it was over two years before the fourth season arrived on Adult Swim following the third season finale. Even when the new episodes for season four started airing last fall, Adult Swim split the fourth season into two five-episode chunks with the second batch of episodes picking back up earlier this month. But if series co-creator Justin Roiland had his way, he’d keep shaking up how the show is distributed to the masses. In fact, he’s even suggested the idea of releasing just one new Rick and Morty episode each month. Read More »

Solar Opposites Future Seasons

The first season of Solar Opposites launched on May 8, and after just four days, it was already Hulu’s most watched title in the history of the streaming service. That means it’s likely that the series will be renewed for a second season any time now, and the good news is creators Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan already have story arcs planned for at least three or four seasons.

Solar Opposites Review

Rick and Morty is known for insane space adventures that take the titular uncle and nephew duo (and sometimes the rest of their depressing suburban family) into grotesque, weird, violent, and disturbing planets, galaxies, alternate timelines, and various other sci-fi landscapes. You might expect more of the same from the new Hulu animated series Solar Opposites since it hails from from Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and series writer Mike McMahan, especially since it follows a “family” of aliens stranded on Earth who are forced to deal with the dredges of humanity and suburban life. Even though the animation style, character design and sense of humor falls in line with Rick and Morty, this sidesplitting, raucously hilarious show brings something different to the table, delivering a quality, clever comedy that is somehow simultaneously darkly deranged and charmingly lighthearted.

Solar Opposites Trailer

Rick and Morty is returning on May 3 with the second half of the show’s fourth season on Adult Swim. But fans will be getting a double dose of animated comedy from co-creator Justin Roiland with a new series coming to Hulu less than a week later.

Solar Opposites follows a team of aliens whose world has been destroyed, leaving them to make an emergency landing on Earth. While waiting for a living super computer called Pupa to evolve and terraform Earth to give them a new home, these aliens must endure humanity and try to blend in, just like your average TV sitcom. Except this sitcom has grotesque aliens, wild space gadgets, plenty of accidental murder and injuries, and even some cocaine. As the new Solar Opposites trailer reveals, it’s exactly what you’d expect from the mind that brought us Rick and Morty. Read More »
