Hulu has been busy setting up its summer schedule plans. This summer, viewers will see new episodes of comedies Shoresy, Solar Opposites, and This Fool on the streaming service. Shoresy (a spin-off of Canadian comedy Letterkenny) and This Fool are brand new shows, while Solar Opposites (above) is returning for its third season.
Hulu shared more about the return of all three shows in a press release.

Synopsis: Co-created by Justin Roiland (“Rick and Morty”) and Mike McMahan (“Rick and Morty,” “Star Trek: Lower Decks”), “Solar Opposites” centers on a team of four aliens who 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 TV, junk food and fun stuff. In season three, this alien team strives to be less of a team and more of a family.
