Hulu has picked up additional seasons of their hit adult comedies, Solar Opposites and Crossing Swords.

What’s happening:

  • Crossing Swords has been renewed for a 10-episode second season.
  • The main vocal cast for both series will return for the new seasons of their respective shows.

Solar Opposites

  • Solar Opposites centers around a team of four aliens who escape 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 (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: protect the Pupa, a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth.”
