Hulu orders new seasons of Solar Opposites and Crossing Swords
Hulu has officially renewed their two newest adult-animated comedy shows Solar Opposites and Crossing Swords! Rick and Morty creator Justin Roiland’s new animated series Solar Opposites has been picked up for a two-season order for a second and third season of the series after debuting last May. Meanwhile, the Crossing Swords’ Season 2 renewal comes nearly a week after the Nicholas Hoult-led stop-motion series had its premiere on Friday, June 12. In addition, the announcements also came with the release of two new promos for both shows which you can check out below!
Solar Opposites centers around a team of four aliens who have escaped their exploding homeworld, only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. Korvo (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: protect the Pupa, a living supercomputer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth.
Since its debut, the animated has already become Hulu’s most-watched Original comedy premiere to date and was Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes.
Crossing Swords follows the story of Patrick, a good-hearted peasant who lands a coveted squire position at the royal castle. However, his dream job quickly turns into a nightmare when he learns his beloved kingdom is run by a hornet’s nest of horny monarchs, crooks and charlatans. Even worse, Patrick’s valor made him the black sheep in his family, and now his criminal siblings have returned to make his life hell. War, murder, full-frontal nudity—who knew brightly colored peg people led such exciting lives?
The series features the voices of Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past, The Great), Luke Evans (The Hobbit), Frank Welker (Scooby-Doo), Breckin Meyer (Robot Chicken), Tony Hale (Toy Story 4), Hynden Walch (Adventure Time), Adam Pally (Happy Endings), Adam Ray (She-Ra and the Princesses of Power), Grey Griffin (The Fairly OddParents, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Loud House) and Jessica DiCicco (Adventure Time).
The first seasons of Solar Opposites and Crossing Swords are already available for streaming on Hulu.
