Solar Opposites Season 3 Release Date, Plot, And Cast - What We Know So Far

Justin Roiland may be most famous for making "Rick and Morty," but that doesn't mean we should ignore his other projects. Though it may not have inspired Mcdonald's to resurrect a long-dead dipping sauce or spawned an endless stream of pickle-themed memes, "Solar Opposites" has found its own level of success streaming on Hulu. It wrapped up its second season last March, and even then it was apparent that Roiland and his team weren't finished with the series quite yet. Now, Hulu has officially confirmed that "Solar Opposites" will be making a grand return.

While Hulu hasn't revealed much about the plot and cast of Season 3, the "Solar Opposites" Twitter page has let slip the show's eventual release date. So even though Season 3 remains cloaked in mystery, fans can rest assured knowing that it will come sooner than they might think. Until then, all there is to do is look back at Season 2 for hints at what might go down in the upcoming episodes. Without further adieu, here is what we know so far about "Solar Opposites" Season 3.

What is the release date for Solar Opposites Season 3?

Fans probably guessed that "Solar Opposites" would get a third season by the time Season 2 came to a close. Korvo practically says as much when they all turn into trees in the final episode. At the end of the day, however, nothing is truly confirmed until Hulu greenlights it. And, luckily, it seems like that day has come. On May 16, the official "Solar Opposites" Twitter page posted a short video finally confirming and providing a release date for Season 3.

According to the video, which just shows the (now blue) Pupa looking around suspiciously in front of The Wall, "Solar Opposites" Season 3 will premiere on Hulu on July 13. Like the last two seasons, it is presumed that all the episodes will be released simultaneously rather than on a week-by-week schedule. However, fans will be getting more of what they love this time around. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Season 3 of "Solar Opposites" is slated to be 12 episodes long, rather than the eight-episode stints that Seasons 1 and 2 received. Now that's something fans can definitely get behind.

What is the plot of Solar Opposites Season 3?

Season 2 of "Solar Opposites" left fans with some pretty interesting developments for our favorite Schlorpian family. In the final episode of the season, we finally see the beginning stages of the Pupa's terraformation process. Knowing that they are about to die so that the Pupa can eat them and evolve, the Schlorpians spend most of the episode racing to achieve existential fulfillment before they spontaneously die at midnight. Seconds after that happens, we learn that Schlorpians come back as trees whenever they kick the bucket.

By the time of the "Very Solar Holiday Opposites Special," the Schlorpians are back in their regular forms. And while the Pupa may be one step closer to transforming and terraforming the Earth into a new Planet Schlorp, there's still plenty of time for the family to have more wacky adventures. There's also more time for the denizens of the Wall to engage in their bitter rivalries.

After giving birth to her baby Pezlie inside of a Pez container, Cherie has now officially returned to The Wall. However, after discovering that Tim has turned into another rotten despot, she plans with Halk to overthrow him. How the two plan to accomplish this, however, is left a mystery that will hopefully be revealed when Season 3 rolls around.

Who is in the cast for Solar Opposites Season 3?

At the very least, fans can expect more of the same when it comes to the cast of "Solar Opposites" Season 3. Given that the Schlorpians are still alive and well, we don't really expect any of them to go anywhere for the duration of Season 3. As such, one should expect to see the return of Korvo (Justin Roiland), Terry (Thomas Middleditch), Yumyulack (Sean Giambrone), and Jessie (Mary Mack).

Much the same can also be said when it comes to characters from The Wall. Tim (Andy Daly), Cherie (Christina Hendricks), and Halk (Sterling K. Brown) are all still alive and still at the center of The Wall's drama. However, every season thus far has introduced new faces to The Wall as Yumyulack continues to shrink unlucky humans on a whim. It wouldn't be too much of a surprise if that side of the cast grows as the season goes on. 

If the show is getting some new characters, however, Hulu hasn't let on one way or the other. The Twitter post announcing the release date of the upcoming season only shows the Pupa, so it's possible that we won't learn about any new characters until they actually show up in "Solar Opposites" Season 3.
