Will there be another season of Solar Opposites?
Recently, Solar Opposites was extended for a fifth season in October 2022. In June 2021, it was renewed for a fourth season. The fifth season has been renewed for a fifth season before the fourth season of the series premieres on Hulu, which will consist of 12 episodes.
The official Twitter handle of the show also confirmed the news by sharing a post among its followers, quoting, “This just in from #NYCC: #SolarOpposites Season 5 is officially cleared for launch! (Yes, we know we haven’t even given you Season 4 yet.).” Take a look at the post below:

Solar Opposites Season 5 Potential Release Date
The series was officially renewed a few hours ago as the streamer announced today at New York Comic-Con that it has renewed the series for a fifth season. Hence the prospective premiere date has yet to be acknowledged, and the production status is neither here nor there. But if we have to predict the potential release date, it might happen sometime around mid-2023, just like the last seasons.
So, if the network decides to continue releasing the series in the same consistent manner, then the next season may follow the same pattern and release the season in a similar time slot for viewers to watch the episodes.
Solar Opposites Season 5 Plot
The series is expected to expand on the basic premise from Hulu, which states, A team of four aliens escape their exploding home world only to crash land into a move-in ready home in suburban America. They are evenly split on whether Earth is awful or awesome. 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. Moreover, the new season is expected to continue the tale from the last episode of season four, which has not been released as of October 8, 2022, so it is difficult to predict the plotlines this early on. So, the viewers should wait patiently and revisit the prior seasons to understand the plot of the show.
Solar Opposites Season 5 Cast and Crew
The main cast members with their respective character descriptions who are expected to reprise their roles for the next season are as follows:
Justin Roiland as Korvo Solar-Opposites: An intelligent alien scientist who hates Earth and wants to leave as soon as possible. He is the designated leader of their mission to find a new world.
Thomas Middleditch as Terry Solar-Opposites: Korvo’s evacuation partner and pupa specialist who enjoys being on Earth and is fascinated with human culture.
Sean Giambrone as Yumyulack Solar-Opposites: Korvo’s replicant who is a self-proclaimed scientist and bounty hunter. He shrinks adults who are mean and puts them inside his terrarium, “the Wall”.
Mary Mack as Jesse Wearsprada Solar-Opposites: Terry’s replicant who is generally kind and wants to fit into human society.
Sagan McMahan as the Pupa: An infant alien linked with the titular Solar Opposites who will one day evolve into its true form and terraform the Earth into a copy of the Shlorp homeworld for the Shlorp ruling class, using the data stored in its DNA and change colors like yellow, orange, purple, and light blue.
Moreover, there is no official announcement made regarding any new additions or removal to the cast members of the series. So, we have to wait for any such updates, which will be revealed if the series is officially confirmed, to return back to screens for the next chapter.
The show is co-created by Justin Roiland (Rick & Morty) and Mike McMahan. The animated comedy is executive produced by Roiland, McMahan, and Josh Bycel and is produced by 20th Television Animation.
Solar Opposites Season 5 Episodes
Solar Opposites Season 5 is expected to have the same episode count of 12 episodes with a runtime of 21–25 minutes, just like the fourth season. The episodes are expected to be released on the same day. We speculate that it is intended to follow the same framework as the prior seasons to be consistent and tell the tale in a concise manner.

When available, Solar Opposites Season 5, along with the last seasons, is expected to make its debut on Hulu Plus.
