It looks like Ricky and Morty will be coming back in the future. Sources have been reporting a renewal for the animated series from Community creator Dan Harmon since last month, when a picture of the Season 2 writing staff showed up on Twitter, but it wasn’t until yesterday that Adult Swim confirmed the rumors. In a press release retweeted by Harmon himself, the network announced it had picked up the show for a second season.
Rick and Morty hasn’t just been one of 2014’s best new comedies, it’s also been a sleeper hit, beating out the competition in key demographics. So it was really just a matter of time before Adult Swim renewed the offbeat science fiction series. Unfortunately, fans will still have to wait to see new episodes from the current season, which is scheduled to return in March.
