Son of Zorn is a live action sitcom that aired on FOX from 2016 to 2017. It follows the story of a cartoon character named Zorn (Jason Sudeikis), who returns to Earth after ten years of living in the animated world of Zephyria. Zephyria is a fantastical world where Zorn is a warrior and the self-proclaimed defender of the land.

Zorn comes back to Orange County, California to reconnect with his ex-wife, Edie (Cheryl Hines), and their teenage son, Alan (Johnny Pemberton). The show follows Zorn as he tries to navigate life as a father and rekindle his relationship with Edie, while also dealing with the challenges of living in the human world.

One of the unique aspects of Son of Zorn is the blending of live action and animation. Zorn is a fully animated character who exists in a world of live-action actors. The contrast between the two creates a comedic effect that is central to the show's humor.

Zorn is a very traditional, masculine character with an exaggerated sense of heroism. He struggles to communicate with his ex-wife and teenage son, who are both more grounded and practical than he is. Edie has moved on from Zorn and is engaged to Craig (Tim Meadows), a mild-mannered professor, who is the complete opposite of Zorn in every way.

The show's humor primarily derives from the clashes between Zorn's exaggerated sense of heroism and his son's modern sensibilities. Alan is a typical teenager who is obsessed with technology and pop culture. He's also very skeptical of his father's claims of heroism. Edie serves as the mediator between Zorn and Alan, trying to bring them closer together while also dealing with her own issues that arise from co-parenting with her ex-husband.

Apart from the central four characters, Son of Zorn also boasts a great supporting cast. One of the standout characters is Linda (Artemis Pebdani), an odd and offbeat co-worker of Edie's. Another notable character is Todd (Jon Daly), Zorn's best friend from Zephyria, who is also voiced by Jason Sudeikis.

Overall, Son of Zorn is a fun and lighthearted sitcom that tries to strike a balance between absurdity and groundedness. The show's use of animation adds a unique element to the show's visual language, and the characters are likable and well-developed. However, the show only lasted for one season, which may suggest that it failed to connect with a wide enough audience. Nevertheless, it's worth checking out for those looking for a unique and comedic take on the traditional family sitcom.

Son of Zorn is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (13 episodes). The series first aired on September 11, 2016.
