We’ve been patiently waiting for Rick and Morty season two for what feels like an eternity now but we’re starting to see the light at the end of the intergalactic tunnel. Rick and Morty’s official Facebook page teased us “Summer 2015. Summer. This. Summer.” Now we have an official date.
Rick and Morty returns to Adult Swim on Sunday, July 26th at 11:30 p.m.
There will be one less episode of Rick and Morty this time around. In total, season two will comprise 10 episodes.
There was Rick. There was Morty. There were Meeseeks. There were wasps, shrimp, fascists and death crystals, because of course there were. The acclaimed animated adult comedy Rick and Morty returned to Adult Swim Sunday night after two years of no new episodes. Fan reaction on social media seemed to show many viewers felt it was worth the wait.
As usual, don’t turn the episode off until the credits finish rolling, this time for two reasons. There’s a touching tribute to one of the show’s producers, Mike Mendel, who died in September. And — no spoilers — there’s also a brief scene that puts a new twist on one of the plotlines in the premiere.
“Please tell your loved ones that Rick and Morty has post credits scenes,” wrote show writer and producer Mike McMahan on Twitter. “There’s one tonight that’s kind of important.”
