Academy Award nominee Stephanie Hsu (Everything Everywhere All at Once) has joined the cast as a series regular alongside previously announced cast members Maya Rudolph, Natasha Lyonne, Keke Palmer, Kieran Culkin, and Sam Smith.

The Second Best Hospital in the Galaxy follows Dr. Sleech and Dr. Klak – aliens, best friends, and intergalactically renowned surgeons – as they tackle anxiety-eating parasites, illegal time loops, and deep-space STIs.

In Season One, doctors Sleech and Klak take on a highly dangerous and potentially groundbreaking case and, in doing so, put existence itself in jeopardy. Although considering their dismal personal lives, oblivion might be an improvement.

Tracee Ellis Ross (American Fiction, Black-ish), Bowen Yang (Saturday Night Live, Fire Island), Abbi Jacobson (Broad City), Jay Ellis (Top Gun: Maverick, Insecure), Andrew Dismukes (Saturday Night Live), Lennon Parham (Minx), Gary Anthony Williams (Night Court), and John Waters (Hairspray) will all make appearances in the first season.

Fans are also in store for a family reunion this season when Kieran Culkin, who voices Plowp, is joined by his real-life brothers, Macaulay Culkin, Rory Culkin, Christian Culkin, and Shane Culkin.

Cirocco Dunlap also serves as showrunner, writer, and executive producer along with executive producers Maya Rudolph, Danielle Renfrew Behrens, and Natasha Lyonne for Animal Pictures.

Shauna McGarry, Shannon Prynoski, Chris Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio, and Ben Kalina from Titmouse will executive produce.
