Adult Swim Orders 70 Episodes of ‘Rick and Morty’

Deal with creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland ensure a lengthy run of new episodes of the hit comedy series.

Adult Swim announced it has ordered 70 new episodes of its hit animated comedy series ‘Rick and Morty.’

Adult Swim has made a long-term overall deal with Rick and Morty creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland for 70 new episodes of the critically acclaimed series about a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe. 

Rick and Morty was the No. 1 comedy with millennials across all of television in 2017, and has become a multi-platform sensation in television, digital, gaming, livestreaming, retail and fan experiences.

In celebration of the deal, fans can look forward to the return of the highly successful country-wide tour of the Rickmobile, which hits the road May 17 starting in Atlanta. The one-of-a-kind mobile pop-up shop will be offering new exclusive, custom-designed show collectibles at more than 50 stops, including San Diego Comic Con in July. 

Adult Swim continues to be the No. 1 cable destination for young adults, changing the game with one-of-a-kind programming and producing innovative and immersive fan experiences with Adult Swim on the Green and the upcoming Adult Swim Festival in October.
