If you're not already watching Adult Swim's Rick and Morty you are doing something wrong. Created by Community's Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland (who also voices the two titular characters), the show has been delivering some of the best sci-fi adventure on television since it premiered at the start of last December, and - perhaps more importantly - every single episode has been hysterically funny.
Dan Harmon fans may have to wait until January for the new season of Community, but the series creator’s Adult Swim animated comedy Rick and Morty is headed to the small screen in less than a week. Rick and Morty is scheduled to premiere on Adult Swim on Monday, December 2, however Adult Swim has been gracious enough to drop the full first episode of the series online. Check it out above to see what kind of whacky adventures Harmon’s animated characters get up to.
Following a landmark ratings year, Adult Swim is happy to bring back plenty of its programming and will be adding plenty of new content to its programming slate. The animation-based cable network will bring back 16 series in the coming months and has signed on for eight new programs. Among these are a few quarter-hour programs, a program from former Community showrunner Dan Harmon, and the most weirdtastic sounding program of them all—an animated comedy featuring boxer Mike Tyson.
Community creator Dan Harmon has moved into the animated arena. Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim has picked up a series created by Harmon called Rick and Morty, ordering ten episodes. It’s his first new project to be officially picked up since he left Community amidst much discord earlier this year.
