Hulu is reinvesting in its original animated shows.
The Disney-owned streamer has handed out speedy renewals to adult-focused animated comedies Solar Opposites and Crossing Swords.
Solar Opposites, from Rick and Morty duo Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan and produced by Disney’s 20th Century Fox Television, was originally ordered straight to series with a two-season, 16-episode order. The series has been renewed for a third season consisting of 12 episodes. Since launching May 8, Hulu says Solar Opposites is its most watched original comedy premiere to date. The alien comedy featuring the voices of Roiland, Thomas Middleditch, Sean Giambrone and Mary Mack is certified fresh on RottenTomatoes.com, with a 90 percent and 77 percent rating among critics and viewers, respectively.
