    The star-studded voice cast of Koala Man just got bigger. 

    Jemaine Clement (Flight of the ConchordsWhat We Do in the Shadows), Rachel House, and Jarrad Wright will lend their voices to the adult animated comedy, while  Hugo Weaving (The Matrix) and Mirando Otto (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The Lord of the Rings) are set to appear in a guest star capacity.

    This group joins already-announced stars Hugh Jackman, Sarah Snook (Succession), Demi Lardner, and show creator/voice actor Michael Cusack.

    Set in the Australian suburb of Dapto, Koala Man tells the story of a middle-aged dad named Kevin (Cusack) whose koala alterego boasts the mundane superpower of following rules and busting petty crime. Despite idyllic appearances, however, evil may be hiding around unexpected corners in Dapto, and Koala Man is ready to stand up in the name of justice (even if he has to rope his eye-rolling family into it). 

    A Hulu premiere date for Koala Man has not been announced yet.
