Rick and Morty Voice Recording

Fans are anxiously awaiting the return of Rick and Morty after the surprise third season premiere debuted on April Fools Day earlier this year. We still don’t have a confirmed release date for the rest of the season of the Adult Swim series, but the late night Cartoon Network programming block has provided another tease of what’s to come with a special look behind the scenes.

Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland is responsible for voicing both of the title characters in the animated series. And since the former character is an alcoholic, sometimes co-creator Dan Harmon suggests Roiland get a little bit liquored up before he does some of the voice recording. In the case of the upcoming fourth episode of the third season, apparently it’s integral to whatever is happening, and Adult Swim has shown off what it’s like to work with a drunk Justin Roiland.

Rick and Morty Origin

Rick and Morty is one of the best television shows on air right now. While the animated antics on the Adult Swim series are undoubtedly crass and vulgar, the writing on the show is sharp, witty and has some of the best sci-fi satire that TV has ever seen.

Many fans of Rick and Morty know that the series originally started as a more direct parody of Back to the Future, following characters named Doc Smith and Mharti McDonalds. But the original idea was actually meant to more directly infringe upon the copyrights of Universal Pictures in an effort to get the studio to send creator Justin Roiland a cease and desist order.

Rick and Morty VR

Even though the surprise third season premiere of Rick and Morty was a nice treat for fans who have been waiting for the animated series return, now we’re still stuck waiting for new episodes to come back this summer. Thankfully, there’s something that might hold us over for the time being.

Rick and Morty: Virtual Rick-ality is a new VR game available on the HTC Vive and Oculus + Touch that allows you to enter the wild world of Adult Swim’s animated series. Check out the Rick and Morty VR trailer below to see what kind of adventures you can have. Read More »

rick and morty season 3

Co-creator Dan Harmon, Adult Swim, and all involved with the wonderful Rick & Morty were hoping season three would premiere towards the end of 2016. It was just a prediction (no premiere was ever set), but 2016 came and went without any more episodes of the acclaimed science fiction comedy series. Season three is still without a premiere date, which Harmon blames himself for.

Below, Harmon discusses Rick and Morty season three.

Rick and Morty Meeseeks

Adult Swim’s sci-fi comedy Rick and Morty had a panel at San Diego Comic-Con. We spoke with the show’s creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon along with writer Ryan Ridley in a roundtable interview. In only two seasons, Rick and Morty has established a sub-franchise within the show, with two episodes of “Interdimensional Cable.” They said a third episode is possible, but also tease a season three episode that could launch a different recurring element.

“Possibly, yeah, we’re figuring it out,” Roiland said. “It’s very rough on production. It’s not an easy episode to make.We’re introducing something amazing we can’t say much about, but there’s probably room for both ultimately. I’d be down to do it. The connective tissue has to be different and Ridley’s got a really good pitch that [Harmon] hasn’t heard yet so we’re not going to talk about it here. It’s spoiler alert territory.”  Read More »

Rick and Morty Georgia Court

If you’ve watched an episode of Rick and Morty, then you know there are some positively insane things in the Adult Swim animated series. From weird aliens to intergalactic television to Mr. Poopybutthole, there’s always something totally strange in each and every episode. However, during a panel at Comic-Con, creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland delivered a video so totally weird you won’t believe the dialogue was lifted from a real life court case in Georgia.

Rick and Morty Season 3 Release Date

When the second season of Rick and Morty came to an end last October, the longtime character Mr. Poopy Butthole said that we would see what happens to everyone’s favorite drunk scientist grandfather and perpetually nervous grandson in about a year and a half. That was in the beginning of October, so we’ve been operating under the assumption that the show wouldn’t return until March of 2017. However, according to Dan Harmon, it sounds like Rick and Morty season 3 will arrive before the end of 2016. Read More »

‘Rick and Morty’ Renewed for Season Three

Rick and Morty Renewed

We’re only three episodes into the second season of Rick and Morty, but Adult Swim has smartly moved to renew one of the best shows on TV. Rick and Morty is created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, with Roiland also voicing both the young Morty and his genius, possibly insane, definitely alcoholic grandfather Rick.

Together they journey to alien planets, into dreams, through alternate dimensions, and into their own fears and insecurities. OK, that last part is meant to be kind of sarcastic, but it is actually true, and part of the reason this show is so good. Read More »

Rick and Morty S2 trailer

With robots, parallel universes, technology run dangerously rampant, and an excellent group of five characters to watch as things get weird, the first season of Rick and Morty was one of the best science fiction shows on TV. Created by Justin Roiland (who voices both lead characters) and Dan Harmon, the series is like a super-twisted version of Back to the Future in which Doc is drunk, cocky, and astonishingly brilliant, and Marty is a shy and cautious kid.

With all that established, I’m hoping the second season will be the best sci-fi show on TV, full stop. The first big Rick and Morty S2 trailer is here, and you can watch below to see how crazy things might get. Read More »
