Solar Opposites debuted on Hulu last May when the coronavirus pandemic had forced millions to quarantine to stay safe. Who could have predicted that what would happen in the real world over the next year would be more insane than the wild sci-fi antics of four aliens who are waiting to terraform the planet and claim it for themselves?
Thankfully, the second season of Solar Opposites is arriving this weekend, and it brings back all the deranged hilarity that we loved the first time around, but it also takes things to a new level with even more gnarly monsters, extremely specific sci-fi gadgets, the next phase of the Pupa’s evolution, and an entirely new genre of storytelling inside The Wall.

Solar Opposites is coming back for a second season, and just as we saw in the teaser trailer not too long ago, the whole alien crew is still stuck on Earth. But this time they’ll be spreading their mayhem beyond the borders of their little suburb.
The new Solar Opposites season 2 trailer shows all of the trouble that Korvo (Justin Roiland), Terry (Thomas Middleditch), Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone), and Jesse (Mary Mack) will be causing, including a trip to London and prison. Oh, and it’s got some salt language that’s NSFW. You’ve been warned!

There’s never been a better time for animated projects geared towards adults, especially when it comes to comedy. Two of the best animated series today come from Justin Roiland. Adult Swim brings us Rick and Morty, which he created with Community mastermind Dan Harmon, and Hulu has Solar Opposites, teaming him up with Star Trek: Lower Decks creator Mike McMahan while.

In May of last year, Hulu gave us some reprieve from the nightmare of 2020 with the absolutely hilarious new animated series Solar Opposites. Created by Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and writer Mike McMahan, the show follows four aliens who have set out to find a new planet to inhabit after their homeworld was destroyed. Unfortunately for them, they crash land on Earth and get stuck in the middle of suburban hell.
The second season of Solar Opposites is coming to Hulu in March, and the first teaser trailer finds them preparing to finally get away from the hellscape that is Earth. And based on recent events, their timing couldn’t be better. Of course, their departure doesn’t quite go as planned, setting the stage for another season of alien absurdity, chaos, and hilarity. Check out the Solar Opposites season 2 trailer below. Read More »

Solar Opposites arrived on Hulu last month and quickly became the most-watched original program on the streaming service to date.

While you’re waiting for new episodes of the series to arrive, you can watch “the lost recordings” from the first season of the show, where the main cast members Justin Roiland, Thomas Middledith, Sean Giambrone, and Mary Mack are all recording lines in the same room.
