Let’s start with the big news that is coming out pertaining to Rick and Morty over at Adult Swim — you are getting a LOT more of the popular comedy. In a post on Instagram, show executive producer Dan Harmon confirmed that there are SEVENTY more episodes of the show coming — that’s not a misprint. Other than some of those sitcoms a la Anger Management that operate under a 90-episode renewal model, this is one of the biggest renewals that we’ve ever seen for a cable show. This should guarantee many more years of shenanigans and hilarity.
Think about things this way: Typically, a Rick and Morty season runs between 10 and 11 episodes. This could easily keep the series on the air until 2025 or longer if it continues its current pace.
As for some other news…

This is the right sort of nostalgia, something that’s just designed to be fun and bring a smile to your face.
