For those who can't wait for Rick and Morty to return to finish Season 4 on Adult Swim, but also aren't completely against watching another series with the same off-center sensibilities, then kick back with a bowl of Pickle Rick Pringles. Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland teamed up with former head writer Mike McMahan for the brand new series Solar Opposites, which is heading to Hulu.
The streaming service released the slightly NSFW first trailer for Solar Opposites, and it is just as hilarious and out there as one might imagine. Check it out below!
Sticking with the same kind of absurdity-driven science-fiction that Justin Roiland does so well, Solar Opposites is about a family of four aliens who end up crash-landing on Earth after having escaped the destruction of their own planet. Luckily for them, they crashed into a home that was already ready to move into, which allows them to jump right into all the things that make this country what it is. Such as bullying, addictive drugs, and black holes. Wait, that doesn't sound right.
This sign doesn't sound right, either.
Solar Opposites features a solid cast, with an even more impressive stable of guest stars set to appear in Season 1. Justin Roiland himself voices Korvo, with The Goldbergs' Sean Giambrone as Yumyulack, and they don't have much respect for humanity and its gluttonous and pollutive ways. Silicon Valley's Thomas Middleditch voices Terry and stand-up comic Mary Mack plays Jesse, and they love humans' entertainment and junk food. The overall plot involves the aliens needing to protect the living computer known as the Pupa, which will one day evolve and terraform the Earth, after consuming the alien family. Naturally.

Here's a quick rundown of some of the big guest stars that will appear in Solar Opposites. Alan Tudyk, Alfred Molina, Christina Hendricks, Echo Kellum, Jason Mantzoukas, Ken Marino, Maurice LaMarche, Miguel Sandoval, Nat Faxon, Natalie Morales, Neil Flynn, Phil LaMarr, Rainn Wilson, Tiffany Haddish, Tom Kenny, and Wendi McLendon-Covey. Two Goldbergs stars in the same animated series? Does this mean we'll get to see Justin Roiland getting silly with Jeff Garlin at some point? Probably not, but at least there are Solar Opposites' zombie teenagers to look forward to.
The entire first season of Solar Opposites will be released on Hulu on Friday, May 8, so no need to worry about any Rick and Morty-esque gaps between episodes. You can put your "pig ol' beepers" on all the episodes in a single day. (And stay tuned for Justin Roiland's other new show, which also sounds less than normal.)

His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
