Apple TV+ has announced the release date for its upcoming adult animated series Strange Planet, which will feature the voices of Danny Pudi and Hannah Einbinder. The quirky comedy will be available to stream from August 9th. New episodes will air weekly on Wednesdays until the season finale on September 27.
What is Strange Planet about?
“The series is a hilarious and sensitive look at a distant world not unlike our own,” reads the log line. “In a whimsical world of cotton candy pink and purple, likeable blue creatures explore the absurdity of everyday human traditions.”
Strange Planet is based on the popular webcomics and best-selling graphic novel by Nathan W Pyle, who is creating and producing the series adaptation with Emmy-winning executive producer Dan Harmon (Rick and Morty). The 10-episode series’ cast includes Tunde Adebimpe (Rachel Getting Married), Demi Adejuyigbe (The Amber Ruffin Show), Lori Tan Chinn (Awkwafina Is Nora from Queens), Danny Pudi (Community) and Hannah Einbinder (Hacks).
The project was ordered directly in series in June 2021. Executive Producers are Alex Bulkley, Corey Campodonico, Lauren Pomerantz, Amalia Levari, Steve Levy and Taylor Alexy Pyle. It comes from Apple Studios and ShadowMachine. The latter is the animation studio behind several adult animated series, including BoJack Horseman, Ten Year Old Tom, Tuca & Bertie, Little Demon, and the revival of Clone High.
