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.

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 »
The video game Grand Theft Auto V has been out for about three and a half years now, but fans keep coming up with new ways to make the game more exciting, at least for those who play it on their computers. There have been mods adding The Incredible Hulk and Iron Man to the video game, and there was even an official update that introduced vehicles that were essentially TRON lightcycles into the mix. But a recent mod is one of the weirdest and coolest we’ve seen yet.
A modder known as Jedidiah515 took it upon himself to create a mod that allows the title characters from Adult Swim’s animated series Rick and Morty to enter the world of Grand Theft Auto V. In fact, the mod allows players to add tons of Ricks and Mortys into the game, as if all of the different versions from parallel dimensions were converging on this one world. However that mod also makes for some truly disturbing images, especially when strippers are replaced with Rick Sanchez.

In case you didn’t hear, last weekend Adult Swim surprised viewers by delivering the surprise debut of the third season premiere of Rick and Morty on April Fools’ Day. It replayed over and over for a few hours, and then it replayed again the next day after an all day marathon on Adult Swim’s streaming site. Since then, it aired again on Adult Swim so that everyone’s series recordings could pick it up for everyone who couldn’t catch it before.
Those who were lucky enough to catch Rick and Morty were treated to a series of promos to highlight the fact that the show will officially return for its full third season this summer. Using various styles of animation, the promos were wild and wacky, featuring various characters from the animated series in some peculiar situations.

This past weekend, Adult Swim surprised everyone on April Fools’ Day by debuting the long-awaited third season premiere to Rick and Morty, both online and on Cartoon Network. It was a welcome return for the brilliant animated comedy series, though it has caused some debate among fans as to whether what is actually going on in the episode (you can find out more about that here). But beyond having fans coming up with theories about the direction of the show, there was one other way Rick and Morty worked fans into a frenzy.
In the episode, we learn that Rick has a potentially unhealthy affinity for a special Szechuan sauce that was given out with McDonald’s chicken nuggets for a limited time as part of a cross-promotion with the release of Mulan back in 1998. Despite demands by fans in various petitions online over the years, the sauce has remained hidden away. However, it sounds like there’s a chance its appearance in Rick and Morty may have convinced the fast food chain to bring it back. Read More »
Even though the internet was full of April Fools Day shenanigans yesterday, there was one surprise that wasn’t a stupid joke. The third season of Rick and Morty had a surprise premiere on Adult Swim last night, airing on a loop for a few hours before the channel went back to their regularly scheduled programming. If you missed it, you still have a chance to see it later today on the Adult Swim website (or you can seek it out yourself online where fans are posting links all over the place). However, there’s a theory that this might not be the real season premiere, and there is actually some evidence to support that theory.
Let’s take a closer look. Read More »

It’s been a full 16 months since the last episode of Rick and Morty, and as of now we still don’t know when we’ll see the show again. There were some optimistic rumblings that season 3 could premiere by the end of 2016, but that garbage year has already come and gone. On the bright side, though, a 2017 premiere date is looking more and more realistic.
Rick and Morty season 3 has officially entered production, and it’s celebrating by trolling fans. A new video has gone up promising the opening scene. What it actually is is… something else. Watch it below. Read More »
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.

Even though we heard earlier this year that Adult Swim would bring new episodes of Rick and Morty to air before the end of 2016, that potential redemption for this awful year just won’t be coming through. Instead, Rick and Morty‘s third season is coming sometime in 2017, and while we don’t have a premiere date set yet, we do have a few minutes of footage from the new season to hold us over.
About a week and a half ago, a live stream allowed users to check out an Adult Swim “Development Meeting” that featured sneak peeks of upcoming shows in 2017, and that included this Rick and Morty season 3 sneak peek. Somehow it went unnoticed this whole time, but we have it now, and that’s all that matters. However, if you watch the video below, beware of NSFW language since it’s entirely uncensored at this time.
