Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan made the American animated sitcom Solar Opposites for Hulu. The show was made for the Fox Broadcasting Company, but the project was put on hold until Hulu bought it.
Hulu says that from the time it started on May 8, 2020, to May 12, 2020, Solar Opposites was the most-watched show and the most-watched Hulu Original comedy show premiere. The good news is that after months of waiting, the network has officially renewed the show for another season.
It’s not surprising that the series is getting more episodes since fans and critics all over the world love it and have given it many good scores and reviews. If you want to know the most up-to-date information about the animated show being picked up for a second season, you’ve come to the right place.
We’ve put together a quick summary of everything you need to know about the new season’s release date, plot, and cast so you can get ready to stream it.
Will Solar Opposites Return for Season 5?
Solar Opposites was just given a fifth season, which will start in October 2022. It was picked up for a fourth season in June 2021. Before the start of the fourth season on Hulu, which will have 12 episodes, the fifth season has been picked up for another run.
The show’s official Twitter account also confirmed the news by tweeting, “This just in from #NYCC: #SolarOpposites Season 5 is officially cleared for launch!” (Yes, we know that Season 4 hasn’t even come out yet.)” Check out the following post:

Solar Opposites Season 5 Release Date
The series was officially picked up for a fifth season a few hours ago, when the streamer announced it at New York Comic-Con.
So, the possible premiere date hasn’t been set yet, and the status of the production is neither here nor there. But if we have to guess, it might come out sometime around the middle of 2023, like the last two seasons.

- The Daily Life Of The Immortal King Season 3 Release Date: What Is the Season 3 Renewal Statue?
- Amulet Book 9 Release Date: What About Book 9 of the Amulet Series?
So, if the network decides to keep putting out the series at the same time every week, the next season may follow the same pattern and be available for viewers to watch at the same time every week.
What is the Plot of Solar Opposites Season 5?
The series is expected to add to the basic premise from Hulu, which says that a group of four aliens flee their exploding home world and crash land in a ready-to-live-in house in a suburban area of the United States.
People are split about whether Earth is bad or great. Korvo (Justin Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see pollution, crass consumerism, and how weak humans are, but Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love humans and all their TV, junk food, and fun things.
Their job was to protect Pupa, a living supercomputer that will one day become its true self, eat them, and change the Earth. Also, the new season is likely to continue the story from the last episode of season four.
As of October 8, 2022, the last episode of season four has not been released, so it is hard to predict the plot at this point. So, people who want to know what’s going on in the show should be patient and watch the seasons that came before.
Who is the Cast of Solar Opposites Season 5?
The main cast members who are expected to keep their roles for the next season, along with brief descriptions of their roles, are as follows:
- Justin Roiland as Korvo Solar-Opposites
- Thomas Middleditch as Terry Solar-Opposites
- Sean Giambrone as Yumyulack Solar-Opposites
- Mary Mack as Jesse Wearsprada Solar-Opposites
- Sagan McMahan as the Pupa
Also, there have been no official announcements about new cast members or people leaving the show. So, we have to wait for any updates, which will be made public if the series is officially greenlit, before the next chapter comes back to screens.
Rick and Morty’s Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan worked together to make the show. The animated comedy is made by 20th Television Animation, which is run by Roiland, McMahan, and Josh Bycel.
