Justin Roiland and Thomas Middleditch give the voices to Korvo and Terry, whose alien family must learn to fit in in Central America.

If you’ve devoured the last season of Rick and Morty when it debuted last November, chances are you’re already itching for season five. Unfortunately, if the history of the series tells us anything, we’ll probably have to wait a long time. But in the meantime, Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland and former head writer Mike McMahan are bringing a new animated series to Hulu called Solar Contradictionsabout a family of aliens who were forced to take refuge in Central America.

The trailer just came out and it looks like the show will be channeling a lot of the same insanely in-your-face, wacky energy that was created Rick and Morty such a nerdalicious delight. According to the official synopsis:

Solar Contradictions revolves around a team of four aliens who escape from their exploding homeworld only to crash into a ready-to-live-in suburban home in America. They are evenly divided on whether the Earth is terrible or wonderful. Korvo (Justin Roiland) and Yumyulack (Sean Giambroni) see only the pollution, gross consumerism and human frailty, while Terry (Thomas Middleditch) and Jesse (Mary Mack) love people and all their TV, junk food and fun stuff. Their mission: to protect the Pupa, a living supercomputer that will one day evolve into its true form, consume them and terraform the Earth.

Of course, Roiland himself – the man responsible for Rick Sanchez’s unique peasant-talking speech patterns – will voice Korvo. Thomas Middleditch portrays Terry, with Sean Irambrone and Mary Mack voicing Yumyulack and Jesse respectively.

And it looks like we’ll be hearing from all sorts of A-list talent in guest cameos as well, including Alan Tudyk, Alfred Molina, Amanda Leighton, Andrew Matarazzo, Andy Daly, Calum Worthy, Chris Cox, Christina Hendricks, Echo Kellum, Eric Bauza, Gary Anthony Williams, Gideon Adlon, Jacob Vargus, Jason Mantzoukas, Jeannie Elias, Jesse Mendel, Jon Barinholtz, Karan Brar, Kari Wahlgren, Ken Marino, Liam Cunningham, Maurice LaMarche, Miguel Sandoval, Nat Faxon, Natalie Morales, Neil Flynn, Phil LaMarr, Rainn Wilson, Rob Schrab, Ryan Ridley, Sagan McMahan, Thomas Barbusca, Tiffany Haddish, Tom Kenny, Vargus Mason and Wendi McLendon-Covey.

The trailer opens with resident alien Terry panicking and robbing an unsuspecting motorist and hitting a random ostrich to deliver shocking news to the other members of his family: “We don’t have noses!” It appears that the family has fled their doomed home planet and, for some reason, chose to land on Earth. “My scans didn’t indicate it was a human-infested mess with no redeeming value,” Korvo said in defense.

They face the usual suburban challenges: alternating street parking for street cleaning, kid’s birthday parties with magicians, bigoted bullies in the schoolyard (“Go back to Uranus!”), and, er, random heroin dealers. But there are also teenage zombies, a black hole created in a lab, and strange creatures called “Gooblers” — not to mention the tiny creatures that are regurgitated by the aforementioned Pupa when someone hands him candy.

All eight episodes of the first season of Solar Contradictions will premiere on Hulu May 8, 2020.”Solar Contradictions coming!” Roiland and McMahan said in a statement. “We can only show you the teaser right now, but the entire season will be out in a few weeks! Stay inside and stay healthy so you can watch this show and love it and call us geniuses and all that shit.”
