Co-Creator Of Rick And Morty Launches New Show Called Solar Opposites
Justin Roiland, the co-creator of cult animated series Rick and Morty, has produced a new show called Solar Opposites. Check out the trailer here:
Judging from the trailer, this looks like it's going to be epic.
Roiland has teamed up with R+M's former head writer Mike McMahan to come up with the new series, which will debut on 8 May on Hulu.
The series itself follows the zany antics of a family of four aliens who escape the destruction of their homeland and crash-land on Earth, where they'll have to start a brand new life.
Luckily for them, their spaceship lands on top of an empty house that's ready to move in. From there, it looks like a whole load of carnage, mayhem and a whole lot of sci-fi fun will ensue - including (according to the trailer) 'man caves', recreational drugs, bullying, animal rights, zombie teenagers, magicians and black holes.
There's also, it seems, something called 'the pupa'. And gooblers. No, we have no idea, either. Oh, and there's a lot of death as well. At least, there is in the trailer.
It's all done with the traditional lack of subtlety that fans of Rick And Morty have come to love since that show began at the tail end of 2013.
Solar Opposites isn't short of recognisable voices either - A-listers Christina Hendricks and Alfred Molina are involved, as well as Goldbergs star Sean Giambron, Girls Trip's Tiffany Haddish and comedian Mary Mack.
Roiland and McMahan posted a message about the series, writing: "Solar Opposites is coming! We can only show you the teaser right now, but the whole season will be out in a matter of weeks! Stay inside and stay healthy so you can watch and love this show and call us geniuses and all that s***."
The 8 May release date is two months away, which might feel a lot longer that it sounds while loads of us are social distancing at home.
However, the show will certainly plug that Rick and Morty-sized hole in your heart until the next part of season four gets released.
The first five episodes were released late last year and fans have been begging for more ever since.
There's no word on when they will come out but surely it would be nice to have them during self-isolation.
