The new episodes aired towards the end of last year, and since then, we’ve gotten no word from Adult Swim on when we’ll see the rest of the season. Considering the recent delays due to the coronavirus pandemic shutting down most TV shows and movies that were in production, the return of Rick and Morty is completely up in the air. However, the duo did return to Adult Swim this past weekend, albeit in a much different form.
During the Toonami block of programming that airs anime shows on Adult Swim, there was a whole Rick and Morty anime short inspired by Lone Wolf and Cub, the manga created by writer Kazuo Koike and artist Goseki Kojima, which has been turned into several different movies and TV adaptations, not to mention having a huge influence on the live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian.

We’re just a few days away from the launch of Quibi, the new mobile-only streaming platform. One of the service’s “movies in chapters” that will be available on day one is called When The Streetlights Go On, a murder mystery set in a small town in 1995. Chosen Jacobs (It, Castle Rock) plays a 15-year-old who discovers a pair of murder victims in the woods, and the ramifications of the crime quickly begin to ripple through his community.
Oddly enough, a different version of this show played at the Sundance Film Festival a few years ago. Learn more about that and check out the trailer for the new Quibi version below. Read More »
