I just discovered the existence of Strange Planet today, and I must say, I’m counting down the days until August!
The exciting news was announced by Apple TV+ on Thursday. They revealed that Strange Planet, an upcoming adult animated series created by the mastermind behind Rick and Morty, will be available for streaming starting August 9, 2023. This intriguing series will unfold its first season over ten captivating episodes. As is customary for many Apple TV+ shows, new episodes will be released weekly on Wednesdays, leading up to the highly anticipated season finale on September 27, 2023.
If you’re someone who enjoys binge-watching, Strange Planet will definitely put your patience to the test.
Now, let’s delve into what Strange Planet is all about. The series follows a group of beings inhabiting a familiar planet, where they navigate and hilariously explore the absurdities of everyday human traditions. Drawing inspiration from the immensely popular New York Times No. 1 bestselling graphic novel and social media sensation of the same name, Strange Planet offers a humorous and insightful perspective on a distant world that bears striking resemblance to our own. Its whimsical setting immerses viewers in a delightful palette of cotton candy pinks and purples, adding an extra layer of charm to this captivating exploration of the human experience.
Strange Planet is an exciting collaboration between Emmy Award winner Dan Harmon (known for his work on Rick and Morty and Community) and New York Times bestselling author Nathan W. Pyle. As co-creators and executive producers, they bring their creative prowess to this new animated series. The stellar cast includes Tunde Adebimpe, Demi Adejuyigbe (an Emmy Award nominee), Lori Tan Chinn, Danny Pudi (a Critics Choice Award nominee), and Hannah Einbinder (an Emmy Award nominee).
As someone who appreciates the unique and boundary-pushing nature of Rick and Morty, I share your anticipation for Harmon’s latest project. Rick and Morty, much like South Park, fearlessly explores the absurdities of the world while reflecting them back to us. With Strange Planet, Harmon has an opportunity to showcase his signature style and deliver another thought-provoking and entertaining series.
