Elsewhere on Hulu, animated series Solar Opposites has been renewed for a fourth season – a whole year before its third season is due to air.

Season four of Rick And Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan’s animated sci-fi series will consist of 12 episodes, the same order size that Hulu placed for season three, which is set to air sometime in 2022.

Solar Opposites, which was Hulu’s most-watched original comedy premiere of 2020, centres around four aliens who escape their exploding homeworld only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America.
