Solar Opposites bosses Justin Roiland, Mike McMahan and Josh Bycel have teased what's in store in the Hulu show's second season.
The series was initially picked up for two seasons, with the eight-episode first season premiering on Hulu in May 2020, and follows aliens Korvo, Terry, and their child-replicants Yumyulack and Jesse as they are forced to take refuge in middle America.
Speaking during the Solar Opposites Comic-Con: At Home panel on Thursday (July 23), the show's creatives teased that there's "a lot of fun stuff" planned for the next batch of episodes.
"There's interesting class stuff," writer and developer Josh Bycel shared.
"In the season premiere of next year they discover that there's another group of people that are there, that they've never had to deal with class as aliens and they deal with that.
"And we have a great episode where Terry is obsessed with dinner parties and Korvo is terrible at dinner parties and says all the wrong things and doesn't understand why Brooklyn is cool. There's a lot of that fun stuff."
Later in the panel, Josh added that they had fun splitting the characters into different combinations in the new episodes too, and said that it's something they plan to continue on into the confirmed third season.
"There's a great story with Terry and Jesse, where Terry and Jesse are on one side and Korvo and Yumyulack are on the other side," he shared.
"And I think that was more fun that we had in the second season. We tried to mix them a little bit and I think those are some of the best episodes."
Meanwhile, co-creator McMahan also said that the early season three pick-up has also helped them to plan out more serialised stories in season two and beyond too, including a bigger story for The Wall.
"The third season pick-up does a really helpful thing for us, because we've already written season two and we were doing it anticipating we'd get a season three, because we love all the serialised elements," McMahan shared.
He even noted that the coronavirus pandemic has had an influence on the planned storylines too, particularly with regards to The Pupa, an infant alien who will one day evolve into its true form and rebuild the planet in the image of the Shlorp home world.
"The Pupa is my favourite character. Justin and I talk a lot about when is it going to go off. When we first started writing the show it felt like it'd be weird to have it be such a big world-changing thing, but now the world seems to change every day," he added.
"It seems more and more likely that it's going to easier and more and more relatable for everybody for The Pupa to become a big problem."
Elsewhere during the panel, the show's creatives weighed in on the potential for a crossover with Justin Roiland's other show, Rick and Morty.
