Riding high on the strong ratings that it garnered since its premiere last December, Dan Harmon’s hit animated comedy series Rick and Morty has just been renewed by Adult Swim for a second season full of sci-fi infused hilarity. Those who still need to get caught up can still watch the ongoing first season on Adult Swim, airing every Monday at 10:20 PM ET/PT.
“I am excited to make as much Rick and Morty as Adult Swim allows, and I’m relieved to be in a time slot of no strategic value to CBS,” said co-creator and executive producer Dan Harmon
“I am humbled and super excited by the positive response to the show, and we have no shortage of ideas for future episodes,” said co-creator and executive producer Justin Roiland.
The official synopsis:
After missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland) suddenly arrives at his daughter Beth’s (Sarah Chalke) doorstep looking to move in with her and her family. Beth welcomes him with open arms, but her unremarkable husband Jerry (Chris Parnell) isn’t too thrilled about the tearful reunion as Rick’s arrival serves to shake things up quite a bit around the household. Rick converts the garage into his personal laboratory and gets to work on all sorts of dangerous sci-fi gadgets and contraptions. That wouldn’t be so bad if not for the fact that Rick continues to involve his grandchildren Morty (Roiland) and Summer (Spencer Grammer) in his insane adventures.
