Right off the bat, the trailer for Farzar reveals that the series will have no problem owning up to its roots and influences, with a character asking if the intergalactic story is going to be more like Futurama or Rick and Morty. It’s pretty hard getting out of the shadow from two of TV’s most popular and groundbreaking sci-fi animated series, but if the trailer’s any indication, Farzar is certainly going to give it a try.
It seems like Farzar has a little bit of everything: violence, robots, bizarre alien creatures, dark humor, awkward sexual jokes, more awkward sexual jokes, unfair fights to the death, naked gymnastics, explosions, and a really big mouth. All of that will happen when Farzar prince Fichael (voiced by Dana Snyder) decides to put together a team to defend his planet and prove to his parents he’s a fierce warrior.
On top of voicing Prince Fichael, Snyder will also voice Bazarack, the leader of the evil aliens who want to take over Farzar, and Billy, a chimera-like killing machine who is the group’s voice of reason. Additional voice actors include Lance Reddick as Renzo the czar of Farzar, Grey Griffin as the slightly older Queen Flammy, David Kaye as brilliant scientist Barry Barris, Carlos Alazraqui as infiltrated alien Zobo, Jerry Minor as half-soldier half-android Scootie, and Kari Wahlgren as conjoined twins Mal and Val.
Farzar is created by Roger Black and Waco O’Guin, both of whom created other animated series like Brickleberry and Paradise PD. For its debut season, the sci-fi animated series will have 10 episodes.
Netflix premieres Season 1 of Farzar on July 15.

Check out the official synopsis here:
From the creators of Brickleberry and Paradise PD, Roger Black and Waco O’Guin, comes the outrageous sci-fi animated comedy series Farzar. Egotistical human warrior Renzo liberated the planet Farzar from the evil alien Bazarack, and then established a human settlement under a huge dome, becoming the Czar of Farzar. Years later, Farzar is under attack by the evil aliens once again and Renzo’s well-meaning and not-so-bright son Prince Fichael ventures out with his special crew “S.H.A.T.” (Special Hostile Assault Team!), made up of a human-solider-turned-cyborg (Scootie), clashing conjoined twins (Val and Mal), an unhinged scientist (Barry Barris), a highly incapable mutant (Billy) and a mischievous little alien known as a chaos-celot. (Zobo). As they begin their journey to fight the aliens that want to kill/eat them, Fichael quickly discovers that all is not what it seems and he may be living a lie.
