Solar Opposites to premiere on Fox across Africa this May

Hilarious Hulu Original animated adult sitcom, created by Rick and Morty co-creator  Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan

Johannesburg, 28 April 2021: The side-splitting animated adult sitcom, Solar Opposites will premiere on Fox (DSTV 125 and StarSat 131) on Mondays at 21:30 (CAT) from 3 May 2021.

Co-created by Justin Roiland (Rick and Morty) and Mike McMahan (Rick and Morty), 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. The series that combines themes of aliens, double lives, family life and survival, with hilarious effect, received rave reviews after broadcasting on Hulu in the USA.

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 supercomputer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth.

Solar Opposites is a welcome addition to Fox’s renowned animated content offering, joining the likes of Family Guy and American Dad, which have become firm fan favourites,” says Evert van der Veer, Vice President, Media Networks, The Walt Disney Company Africa. “With irreverent humour, larger-than-life characters, hilarious plotlines and unimaginable adventures, you have the perfect mix for brilliant television entertainment, as only Fox can provide.”


Solar Opposites was created by Mike McMahan and Justin Roiland, with Mike McMahan Justin Roiland Josh Bycel as executive producers.
