Solar Opposites Gets Season 3; Crossing Swords Returning for Season 2

While the streaming service has been known in the past for its acquired adult animation library (Family Guy, Bob's Burgers, Rick and Morty, Futurama, King of the Hill, and more), it appears Hulu is pretty pleased with how its recent move (we didn't forget you, The Awesomes) into "original content territory" has gone. Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan's Solar Opposites has received a season 3 order, having received an initial two-season order. Meanwhile, John Harvatine IV and Tom Root's recently-released Crossing Swords will be returning for a second season.

In Rick and Morty duo Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan's adult animated series Solar Opposites, 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 (Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) only see the pollution, crass consumerism, and human frailty while Terry 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. The series also features an all-star line-up of voice actors that also includes Alan Tudyk, Alfred Molina, Christina Hendricks, Jason Mantzoukas, Liam Cunningham, Rainn Wilson, Tiffany Haddish, and more. Here's a look at the official second and third-season renewal announcement video:

Robot Chicken executive producers John Harvatine IV and Tom Root's Crossing Swords focuses on 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. Written by Harvatine IV and Root, the animated series stars Nicholas Hoult, Adam Ray, Tara Strong, Tony Hale, Luke Evans, Seth Green, Alanna Ubach, Adam Pally, Yvette Nicole Brown, Maya Erskine, Breckin Meyer, and Wendi McClendon-Covey.
