Only a show this smart could be so stupid.
We’ve been covering Adult Swim’s “Rick and Morty” since it first aired in 2013-14 and it has since become a genre staple giving homage to the greatest of horror films and filmmakers right down to David Cronenberg. After a brutally long wait, “Rick and Morty” are back for another round of chaos with a return set for July 30th at 11:30p ET. It’s promised to be the darkest year of their adventures with this bonkers new trailer showing all sorts of mayhem that looks straight out of the “Twilight Zone”.
For those unacquainted, “Rick and Morty” is Adult Swim’s most scientifically accurate animated comedy. Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, it catalogues the bizarre misadventures of a bored scientific genius/drunkard and his socially awkward grandson, Morty. Their exploits tend to have unintended consequences for Morty’s dysfunctional family, especially his unfailingly mediocre father, Jerry.
