Earlier this year, fans of Rick and Morty were gifted their first look at the animated series’ third season at San Diego Comic Con. The beloved show was teased at the convention’s Adult Swim panel thanks to a series of animated storyboards. Since the reveal was made, fans have been eager for more Rick and Morty, but news was impossible to come by. That is, until now. Thanks to a recent livestream by Adult Swim, fans now have gotten another sneak-peek at the third season of Rick and Morty.
So, obviously, beware of the impending NSFW clip.
The footage starts with Morty overhearing a conversation between Jessica and her friends. The group of girls are talking about some...interesting genitalia before Rick drags the young boy away from his oblivious crush.
“Everybody f**k off. Morty, I need your help,” Rick stressed. The two argue for a moment before they head on an adventure, and it was something they were not prepared for. They wind up taking part in an intergalactic space battle, and the two characters very nearly die. While they do live through the ordeal and are even honored with the Star Wars-esque banquet, Rick and Morty return to the spacecraft and try to deal with their near-death experience.
Just how do they do that? Screaming, swears, and a lot of tears.
“I can’t f**king do this anymore,” Morty says.
“We almost died,” Rick screams. “I was not in control of the situation at all”
Earlier this summer, fans were shown another action-packed clip from the raunchy series where Rick had his consciousness transferred into a cockroach. However, the mad scientist soon finds himself cornered by a horde of angry rats who’d love to sink their teeth into his new exoskeleton.
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. Watch Rick and Morty battle everything from interdimensional customs agents to Cronenberg monsters.
The voice-cast features Justin Roiland as both Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland) and his grandson, Morty; Sarah Chalke as Rick's daughter, Beth; Chris Parnell as Rick's son-in-law and Beth's husband, Jerry; and Spencer Grammer as Rick's granddaughter and Beth and Jerry's daughter, Summer.
