Netflix announced that the animated sci-fi comedy Farzar will debut July 15. The streamer also released a trailer, which you can watch below.

Farzar stars Dana Snyder as Prince Fichael who has to lead a crew out of their domed human city to fight evil aliens that want to kill and eat them. But as they embark on their journey, it doesn't take long for Fichael to realize he may have been living a life.

Fichael's team, known as "S.H.A.T." (Special Hostile Assault Team!), is made up of Scootie (Jerry Minor), a human-soldier-turned-cyborg; Val and Mal (both voiced by Kari Wahlgren), conjoined twins who have a lot to disagree about; unhinged scientist Barry Barris (David Kaye); mutant Billy (also Snyder); and Zobo (Carlos Alazraqui), a mischievous alien known as a "chaos-celot."

The show also features Fichael's father, Renzo (Lance Reddick), an egotistical human warrior and the "elected" czar of the titular planet who supposedly freed his people from the evil alien, which is what led them to establish a settlement under a dome in the first place. (That aforementioned evil alien is known as Bazarack and also voiced by Snyder.) But perhaps he made choices and deals that benefitted him, not his people, the most.

And Fichael's mother Queen Flammy (Grey Griffin) is also in the picture, though she is old and "not completely with it." The official word on her from Netflix is that she spoils her son and her mild senility enables her husband to run the city as he sees fit, which sounds a bit like passing the blame for their shortcomings. But don't worry, she has her fun too: She enjoys a still-high sex drive, which her husband is not as excited about.

"Is this going to be more like Futurama or Rick and Morty?" the trailer asks. 

The show is actually from the minds behind Brickleberry.

The 10-episode animated comedy comes from creators and showrunners Roger Black and Waco O'Guin, who executive produce alongside Marc Provissiero, Scott Greenberg, and Joel Kuwahara. The show hails from Odenkirk Provissiero Entertainment and Bento Box Entertainment.
