Adult Swim describes FLCL Progressive in its latest press release as follows:

FLCL: Progressive tells the story of 14-year-old Hidomi, her classmate Ide, and two otherworldly beings, "Jinyu" and "Haruha Raharu," who are determined to unlock their hidden potential. Mixed up in this is an all-powerful force known as "ATOMSK," a gorgeous vintage car… and a certain Vespa Scooter.

Adult Swim describes FLCL Alternative as a a series by "young creators who will redefine the meaning of "sequel."

The series centers on the misadventures of 17-year-old Kana, a high school junior who spends her days hanging out with her besties, Mossan, Hijiri, and Pets. They live unremarkable lives, until the day a Mecha falls out of the sky, along with a strange woman named “Haruko.” Her plans for Kana and her friends involve the force known as “ATOMSK.” Kana will have to risk everything to decide whether or not to help… like she really has a choice!

Jason DeMarco, senior vice-president and creative director for Adult Swim, previously revealed that an English-subtitled simulcast of the Japanese version will stream on Adult Swim's website.
