Rick and Morty fans who feel short of fresh episodes, would stop dreading once they hear about the good news. Earlier this May, Adult Swim announced its long-term deal with creators, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, ordering 70 new episodes of Rick and Morty over a yet to be announced a number of seasons.
Rick and Morty is an adult animated science fiction adventure comedy series created in America. Creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon partnered with Cartoon Network to produce the adult animated series for the network’s late-night programming block, Adult Swim.
The hit animated series premiered on December 2, 2013, and the third season concluded on October 1, 2017. The animation series follows the misadventures of a cynical mad scientist, Rick Sanchez, and his distressed and easily influenced grandson, Morty Smith. The grandpa and grandson duo go on interdimensional adventures and balance it with their domestic life.
Since its 2013 launch, Rick and Morty only aired 31 episodes till October 2017. In the first episode of Rick and Morty in its first season, Rick moves in with his daughter’s family and becomes a bad influence on his grandson Morty, establishing the type of mishaps the duo would get into and steering the whole animation in plots of comedic and epic misadventures.
Rick promised his grandson that their adventures would stretch ‘forever and forever and a hundred years,’ the prophecy is most probable to come true due to Adult Swim’s deal with the Rick and Morty creators. Creators Roiland and Harmon’s deal with Adult Swim does not have any time restraints. Since the pair is known for not rushing with producing the show, the deal would suit them fine. Although the 70 episode deal isn’t going to last a hundred years, the long-term agreement will keep the animated series running on Adult Swim for another decade.
