The best news came when nobody was paying attention, as Adult Swim announced a third season of “Rick and Morty”!
While that was expected, nobody thought Adult Swim would be ordering a whopping 19 episodes, which will air some time in 2017.
For those unacquainted, here’s what “Rick and Morty” is about, “After having been missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez suddenly arrives at daughter Beth’s doorstep to move in with her and her family. Although Beth welcomes Rick into her home, her husband, Jerry, isn’t as happy about the family reunion. Jerry is concerned about Rick, a sociopathic scientist, using the garage as his personal laboratory. In the lab, Rick works on a number of sci-fi gadgets, some of which could be considered dangerous. But that’s not all Rick does that concerns Jerry. He also goes on adventures across the universe that often involve his grandchildren, Morty and Summer.”
In addition, a video game RPG could be in the works, reports Enstars:
“Rick and Morty” co-creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon appeared on the ETC Podcast over the summer and hinted that they would be interested in an RPG video game for the show.
“I wanted to pitch you – season 3, if we were to do season 3, the one complicated episode I’d want to do is somehow we come up with a sci-fi reason why they actually go into a Bethesda-style RPG. . . and actually render them as … real time rendered 3D,” Harmon told Roiland.
“If someone at Ultimum calls us and says ‘let’s publish a game, for real’ — let’s do it!” exclaimed Roiland.
Harmon brought up the idea of creating a “Rick and Morty” game with almost unlimited dimensions, added Enstars.
“I would like to see a marriage between ‘Minecraft’ as the lo-fi thing in exchange for this amazing — the creation of the world as you walk into it. Blending that technology,” he suggested. “You have a portal gun and you can shoot it — you can go to really specific dimensions but you can also just go to random ones that are put together.”
