If you've been eagerly awaiting the next season of Rick & Morty, Hulu's animated series Solar Opposites is just the thing to tide you over and we have all the details on how you can watch the show's second season online.
There are quite a few similarities between Solar Opposites and Rick & Morty because it was co-created by Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan who worked as a writer's assistant on the show. However, while Rick & Morty is about a human family that often has alien adventures, Solar Opposites tells the story of four aliens trying to blend in as humans.
In Solar Opposites, Korvo (Justin Roiland), Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone), Terry (Thomas Middleditch), and Jesse (Mary Mack) are a team of four aliens who crash land on Earth after escaping their exploding homeworld. While Korvo and Yumyulack only see the worst parts of earth including the pollution, consumerism, and human frailty, Terry and Jesse love humans, TV, junk food, and having fun. The group is charged with protecting the Pupa which is a living super computer that will one day evolve into its true form, eat them and terraform Earth.
Season 1 of Solar Opposites introduced us to all of the characters and the move-in ready home they crashed their ship into in suburban America. Season 2 begins with the aliens having successfully repaired their ship but like always, something goes horribly wrong and they are once again stuck on earth just as they were last season. Based on the trailer, it looks like season 2 of Solar Opposites will be even wackier than last season and back in June of last year, Hulu renewed the show for a third season which will feature 12 new episodes while season 1 and season 2 only had eight.
Whether you've been waiting on the second season of the show or are just looking for something fun to watch before season 4 of Rick & Morty drops later this year, we'll show you how to watch Solar Opposites from anywhere in the world.
