HBO MAX/ADULT SWIM: I guess even Rick & Morty have their own Multi-verse. Because they are about to star in an anime series, that’s separate from the original animated Rick & Morty series that we know, and some of us love. Rick & Morty: The Anime will be its own thing, based on the same characters. But won’t take the place of the original series, which should be coming back soon for a sixth season.
The new anime series will be directed by Takashi Sano (Tower of God), who previously helmed two very popular Rick and Morty anime shorts for Adult Swim.
“The multiverse-straddling exploits of Rick and the gang pose challenges to the family bond, but they always rise to the occasion,” said Sano in a statement. “It’s such a life affirming sight, and Jerry is no exception. I am honored to have been given an opportunity to tell a new story about this amazing family. I hope you enjoy their adventures!”
And while no release date has been given for Rick & Morty: The Anime, it is currently in production.
