Hulu has ordered additional seasons of adult animation comedies Solar Opposites and Crossing Swords.
Solar Opposites, which launched May 8 on the streaming service, was one of Hulu’s most-watched original comedy premieres to date. Co-created by Justin Roiland (Rick & Morty) and Mike McMahan (ex-writer’s assistant on Rick & Morty), Solar Opposites centers around a family of aliens from another world who must take refuge in middle America. They disagree on whether Earth is awful or awesome.
Solar Opposites, which was initially given a two-season order when it was first announced, picks up a 3rd season.
Crossing Swords, which debuted June 12, is created by Robot Chicken’s John Harvatine IV and Tom Root. The series stars Nicholas Hoult as 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.
Crossing Swords has been picked up for a second season.
