Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland is getting his hands—and his voice—on another animated series.

According to a report from Deadline, Hulu has ordered two seasons, spanning 16 episodes, of Solar Opposites from Roiland and Rick and Morty executive producer Mike McMahan. The show is described as “a family of aliens from a better world who must take refuge in middle America” and who are at odds over how to feel about the whole situation.

Both Roiland and McMahan will write for the show (on top of working on Rick and Morty), with Roiland voicing the characters Terry and Korvo. Sean Giambrone (The Goldbergs) and Mary Mack are also part of the main cast as Yumyulack and Jesse, respectively.

Hulu’s pickup of Solar Opposites arrives several years after the project was in development at Fox. At the time, Roiland tweeted several pieces of art from the show that gave us glimpses of the main family and the reason why they ended up on Earth.

The announcement comes as Roiland and McMahan are at work on Rick and Morty’s fourth season as part of a 70-episode order (which does not have a release date) and Hulu’s commitment to adding more original programming such as the Animaniacs reboot. It also arrives on the heels of streaming services nabbing up animated talent: Bob’s Burgers creator Loren Bouchard landed at Apple with a two-season series order and Gravity Falls creator Alex Hirsch signed an overall deal at Netflix.
