Rick and Morty has released every episode from its new Vindicators spin-off online and for free with Adult Swim! Rick and Morty is currently gearing up to return later this year to Adult Swim with its sixth season, but the franchise has briefly come back in a whole new way. Adult Swim previously announced they would be releasing new digital shorts to their YouTube channel, and fans saw this bear fruit earlier this year with Aqua Donk SidePieces. Now Rick and Morty has gotten its own spin-off series, and it further fleshes out what happened to the Vindicators in between the first and third adventures.
When The Vindicators were brought into Rick and Morty during the third season episode, "The Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender," the biggest swerve to Morty was the fact that the superhero team he worshipped went on a whole space adventure without he and Rick at their side. It had hinted at a dark past for the hero group we see literally pulled apart in the episode itself, and now The Vindicators 2 spin-off shows us what actually went down during the fabled second adventure that they kept secret from Rick Sanchez. You can find the first episode below, and the nine other entries with Adult Swim's YouTube channel.
The episodes for The Vindicators 2 spin-off series break down as such:
- Rick Can Handle It
- The Dance
- Out of Gas
- First Love
- Mercy Kill
- Girls' Night
- Little Trains
As for what to expect from the series, Adult Swim describes The Vindicators 2's first episode as such, "Answer the Vindibeacon and join your old pals Supernova, Vance Maxiumus, Alan Rails, Crocubot and Noob Noob as they fight crime, avert genocides, and yuk it up without Rick and Morty. The Vindicators is executive produced by Erica Rosbe, Sarah Carbiener, Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland." As for the main series, Rick and Morty Season 6 returns later this year but you can find the first five seasons now streaming with HBO Max and Hulu.
There is also a new anime version of the franchise in the works as well, but there has yet to be a release date set for it as of this writing. How do you like Rick and Morty's online spin-off series?
