Rick And Morty Season 7 Premieres October 15

-

Last week Adult Swim said we’d know when Rick and Morty is coming back very soon. And today is Soon: they’ve revealed Season 7 of the anarchic adult cartoon will be ready October 15.

It’s a minor miracle for the production crew, given the havoc behind the scenes: we’ve already gone over how co-creator Justin Roiland was fired. Though he hadn’t contributed to the show’s writing in years, his role of the voices for both Rick and Morty was still his main gig. How’d they replace him so quickly?

We don’t know, but AS provided two hints for the direction of Season 7. One is the image of Rick with a plate of pasta above, and the other is a vague description: “Rick and Morty are back and sounding more like themselves than ever! It’s season seven, and the possibilities are endless: what’s up with Jerry? EVIL Summer?! And will they ever go back to the high school?! Maybe not! But let’s find out! There’s probably less piss than last season. Rick and Morty, 100 years! Or at least until season 10!”

“It’s happening,” says Adult Swim president Michael Ouweleen. “Thanks to the talent of the entire show team, we can all enjoy 10 new episodes that yet again raise the bar for comedy and animation. This season proves that the geniuses at work on Rick and Morty are just getting started.”

Now for the weird part: remember when these episodes would premiere on Max the day after they aired? That is apparently not the case this time. The press release says no such thing, instead promising “the new season will also be available to stream in 2024.” 2024? We’d rant about how that makes no sense, but barely any decision made under Emperor Zaslav does — this is just the latest of many. AS does mention individual episodes from Season 7 will be available to purchase the day after they air, but no one is going to do that.

Looks like you’ll need a cable subscription to see Rick and Morty this time. The first of ten new episodes premieres on Adult Swim October 15.
