Rick and Morty is perhaps one of Adult Swim’s most popular TV series, having run on the network for a decade now. Creator Dan Harmon will now be bringing the raunchy sci-fi show to Japan.
Adult Swim is working on Rick and Morty: The Anime, the first season of which will consist of five short episodes voiced in Japanese. For the adaptation, the voice actors behind the Japanese dub of the original show will return, featuring Yōhei Tadano as Rick Sanchez and Keisuke Chiba as Morty Smith.
The anime is described as taking direction from the mainline Rick and Morty series but is an original work consisting of new stories. Sola Entertainment is overseeing the production of the series with producers Maki Nagano, Max Nishi, and Takenari Maeda. Yu Kiyozono, meanwhile, will serve as the animated producer.
A teaser for the anime previews a plotline where Rick finds himself confronted by multiple versions of himself from parallel universes while flying in space.
Rick and Morty: The Anime will premiere on Adult Swim and HBO Max. A release date for the series has yet to be announced.
