'Final Space' season 2 is finally happening. Not that it was never on the charts considering how creator Olan Rogers has always kept his audience in the loop. The idea for 'Final Space' originated in mid-2010. Rogers then wrote the pilot and put it up on YouTube, where it caught the attention of Conan O'Brien. The show focuses on an astronaut named Gary and his alien friend Mooncake and their intergalactic adventures as they try to solve the mystery of the titular 'Final Space'.
'Final Space' will premiere on Monday, June 24th at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT on Adult Swim.
Gary Goodspeed is a boisterous yet inept astronaut who, in the midst of working off the last few days of his five-year sentence aboard the prison spacecraft Galaxy One, encounters a mysterious planet-destroying alien. Soon, he befriends the alien, whom he names Mooncake, and discovers that Mooncake is wanted by the forces of a powerful telekinetic creature known as the Lord Commander. Together, with the ship's computer H.U.E, an army of similar but unfalteringly loyal robots, and a growing crew of new shipmates, Gary and Mooncake embark on a quest to save the universe, all while trying to uncover the mystery of what 'Final Space' really is.
The second season also introduces additional (crueller and sinister) characters and an even elaborate quest to find what Final Space is.
Olan Rogers lends his voice to Gary Goodspeed and Mooncake
Rogers started his career on YouTube alongside two friends in the comedy trio BalloonShop, which rose to fame for its comedic sketches and shorts. He then moved on to his solo channel, where he uploaded videos of his own sketches and funny videos inspired by his personal life, short films as well as animated shorts.
David Tennant voices The Lord Commander/Jack
Tennant requires no introduction having won millions of hearts worldwide with 'Doctor Who'. the actor is also known for playing the role of DI Alec Hardy in 'Broadchurch', Giacomo Casanova in the TV serial Casanova, Kilgrave in Netflix's Jessica Jones, and his most recent portrayal of the demon Crowley in Amazon Prime's 'Good Omens'.
Conan O'Brien voices Clarence and Chuck
Television host, comedian, writer, and producer Conan O'Brien got interested in 'Final Space' after the pilot of the series that Rogers posted on his YouTube caught his attention. He then invited him to LA to pitch 'Final Space' to TBS as a full series and even joined the production as executive producer alongside Rogers and '3rd Rock from the Sun' writer and producer David Sacks.
The animated comedy-drama is created by Olan Rogers, who also voices Gary Goodspeed and Mooncake.
The trailer Rogers uploaded to his channel is different from the one uploaded on the Adult Swin YouTube channel. Despite that, both the trailers give us an insight into what the second season will entail- which is darker and more sinister than the previous one.
