Solar Opposites season 5 release date speculation, cast, and news

If you're desperate to know how Korvo and Terry will return to Hulu, you've got to check out our guide on Solar Opposities season 5.

When is the Solar Opposites season 5 release date? Planet Shlorp was a perfect utopia until the asteroid hit… Oh, for God’s sake, not again! We did this for season 3, and no one cared; we did it for season 4, and only one person cared! Enough is enough. I’m not playing this game anymore.

Where was I? Oh yeah, Solar Opposites. In case you’ve not watched it (Why are you here?), it’s one of the best animated series in recent years, and it tells the story of four aliens, Korvo, Terry Jesse, and Yumyulack, living on Earth and getting into all sorts of trouble.

It sounds silly, we know, but it’s one of the best TV series I’ve seen in a long time, and it manages to be funny without dipping its weird alien toes into the cynical waters of other adult comedy series (I’m looking at you, Rick and Morty). So when will our favorite Schlorpians return?

Will there be a Solar Opposites season 5?

Yes, there will be a Solar Opposites season 5; Hulu announced the show’s renewal on October 6, 2022.

Solar Opposites season 5 will likely be released in late 2024, probably in August or September.

It’s difficult to predict exactly as the show’s release window has wobbled since it debuted, but the last two seasons have both been released towards the end of the year, and we know that season 5 is currently in production, so that’s what we’re going with.

If hearing your favorite aliens aren’t returning for a year is too much to bear, then don’t start sweating Goobers. There’s a Solar Opposites Valentine’s Special coming in early 2024 (presumably in February)  to tide you over.

Who’s in the Solar Opposites season 5 cast?

The entire Solar Opposites cast is expected to return for season 5, which means Thomas Middleditch, Sean Giambrone, Mary Mack, and Dan Stevens will all be back as Terry, Yumyulack, Jesse, and Korvo, respectively.

The expected Solar Opposites season 5 cast list:

  • Dan Stevens as Korvo
  • Thomas Middleditch as Terry
  • Sean Giambrone as Yumyulack
  • Mary Mack as Jesse
  • Sagan McMahan as The Pupa
  • Christina Hendricks as Cherie
  • Kieran Culkin as Glen

What will happen in Solar Opposites season 5?

Solar Opposites season 4 ended with our favorite Schlorpians turning into humans and heading off into space to find a new alien planet so they could return to their natural forms. We expect Korvo, Terry, and the rest to be turned back into aliens pretty quickly, to be honest. Although you never know with Solar Opposites, maybe we’ll spend a few episodes on this new alien planet.

The big question is what will happen with The Wall storyline. It kind of feels as though Cherie’s story has come to an end now. She’s living in the new Wallian colony with Pezlie. We kind of hope her story is done and we get a new Wall character to follow for a bit, as it’d be nice for Cherie to get a happy ending of sorts.

It’s also likely that the Solar Opposites season 5 will pick up the Silvercops storyline. The ninth episode of season 4 was dedicated entirely to the Silvercops, and it ended on a cliffhanger, which seems to be setting up Glen for season 5.

Honestly, we know fans are a little split on the Silvercop storyline, but we’d rather see it continue over The Wall at this point. Why? Well, to us, at least, it feels like all the story potential’s been drawn out of The Wall, and it might be time to retire it.
