Hulu has released the first trailer for Solar Opposites season 2. In addition, the streaming service has announced when fans will be able to see it. The first season of the hit animated series arrived in May of 2020, which was the perfect time. People were just getting used to spending the majority of their time indoors and looking for programs to keep their minds off of reality. Solar Opposites proved to be the right type of humor for the right time. Season 2 will begin streaming March 26th, exclusively on Hulu.
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. The season 2 trailer finds them trying to escape Earth, but that obviously does not go as planned.
When looking at Earth, 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 is pretty simple: protect the Pupa, a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth. "On season two of Solar Opposites, the Solar Opposites take it bigger, funnier, and more opposite than ever before," according to Hulu.
Back in May of 2020, Justin Roiland spoke about how the idea of Solar Opposites came to him. As it turns out, he wrote the name over a pair of aliens that he had drawn and then worked from there. "That was it, so I kind of helped build out the family, and gave them personalities," he recalled. "We just really liked the thought of so many comedic situations that you could get from aliens that are in a human world, but we also loved the idea that the humans don't really care that they're aliens," the Roiland says. "They just think they're pieces of sh*t."
Solar Opposites season 1 laid the groundwork for the characters, which was intentional. "We wanted to start the way any show would start, with a grounded kind of emotional interaction, and then, because they're comedically broad aliens, they take it to a crazy degree with sci-fi stuff," says Mike McMahan. Expect season 2 to get even wilder for the group of aliens and their adventures on Earth. Solar Opposites is executive produced by Justin Roiland, Mike McMahan, and Josh Bycel. The series is produced by 20th Television. You can check out the first Solar Opposites season 2 trailer above, thanks to the official Hulu YouTube channel. Hulu will likely be revealing more promotional material as the March release date nears.
