Solar Opposites Season 4 - What We Know So Far

Hulu's "Solar Opposites" is arguably one of the funniest mature-themed cartoons on the small screen. Justin Roiland, known for "Rick and Morty," and Mike McMahan, whose credits include "Star Trek: Lower Decks," have created a critically acclaimed (via Rotten Tomatoes) hit for the streaming service. According to Variety, the streamer reported that it was one of the most watched shows on Hulu after it premiered in May 2020, and the sci-fi comedy continues to entertain fans every season.

Many things have ultimately contributed to the success of the series, and there is an array of untold truths regarding "Solar Opposites" that viewers continue to discover every time they watch the show. Among the many reasons that make it so outstanding are the characters. There's no denying that Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Korvo (Justin Roiland) get most of the spotlight on the beloved Hulu title. But some followers of the Schlorpian sitcom think Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone) is really superb, and it's not surprising that everyone can't get enough of the Pupa (Sagan McMahan). The sci-fi high jinks and adventures they endure through each well-crafted iteration have made this side-splitting affair a gut-busting experience from start to finish.

After three seasons, fans are most assuredly ready to discover what happens next. Luckily for them, in June 2021, the series was renewed for a fourth season (via Deadline). Here is all of the data out there right now regarding Season 4 of "Solar Opposites."

What is the plot of Solar Opposites season 4?

Season 4, in true "Solar Opposites" fashion, will directly pick up where the last season finale left off. The Schlorpian family gave up engaging in sci-fi shenanigans and started to live a normal life for the Pupa. Terry and Korvo were working an office job, and it seems that's where things will begin. Mike McMahan told MovieWeb, "When we start season four, it has become an office show, and it really is a more straight-laced office show. But don't worry, because Terry and Korvo cannot commit to getting that right."

Then, there are the beloved subplots. As far as The Wall goes, many viewers are likely curious about where things are going in that glorious side narrative. McMahan assured fans more is on the way in an interview with Collider at San Diego Comic-Con. "So fourth season, I can tell you, it's Sherry dealing with the rise of the theocracy in the wall ... This next season is kind of a 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' like cold war spy thriller in the wall with the theocracy."

Another storyline that started in Season 3 was the introduction of Silver Cops. Executive producer Josh Bycel confirmed with Collider there would be a lot coming more from the fledgling side story. "Silver cops, which we introduced in Season 3, will also continue. Mike walked in and said, 'I have this idea for Silver Cops, and I have four seasons all ready to go.'" Fans are definitely in for one wild in Season 4 of "Solar Opposites."

What is the release date for Solar Opposites season 4?

Fans are probably interested to know when Season 4 of "Solar Opposites" will arrive on Hulu. The good news is that it seems like they will not have to wait very long for the next set of episodes. When talking with MovieWeb in July 2022, Mike McMahan disclosed that Season 4 was almost written and revealed that it takes the talented animators of the well-received series a year to get the show animated. Josh Bycel confirmed this in an interview with Collider at San Diego Comic-Con. "It takes a year to make a show, and we are already very deep into season 4."

Barring any unforeseen setbacks, it would seem like the next run is set to debut at some point in 2023, which follows the pattern of releases the series has utilized thus far. The first outing came out in May 2020 and the sophomore run premiered in March 2021. Season 3 came out in July 2022, so it roughly takes a year to get viewers new entries to enjoy over and over again.

Where to watch previous seasons of Solar Opposites

While the wait for Season 4 may seem like waiting for a Pupa to start terraforming a planet for some, there are three seasons and a Christmas special ready to hold followers of the adult-oriented cartoon over before the next chapter arrives. Luckily, no one has to travel to the ends of the galaxy to do so. Fans hoping to relive all the wickedly funny moments from the show, or anyone looking to check out the series for the first time, should know there are a few options out there to choose from in this endeavor.

Regarding streaming, there is only one place where subscribers can watch "Solar Opposites" as part of their subscription plan, and that is Hulu. Every entry is available, along with some extra content, for members to enjoy.

Elsewhere, all episodes from the first season are available on several On-Demand platforms. Consumers can purchase individual entries or the entire debut season on YouTube, Google Play, Apple TV, Vudu, and Amazon Prime.
