image for Rejoice: Adult Swim Just Ordered an Insane 70 More Episodes of Rick & Morty

Out of left field this Thursday afternoon comes the news that legions of geeks and comedy fans have been waiting for: We’re getting more Rick and Morty.

As in, a 70 EPISODE COMMITMENT, although there’s no confirmation of when any new episodes would arrive.

It’s such a crazy number that we keep expecting either Adult Swim, Dan Harmon or Justin Roiland to say that it’s all a hoax.

And my god—can you even imagine what kinds of adventures that Rick and Morty might be tackling, another 50 episodes down the line?

Can Harmon and Roiland possibly have enough ideas in their heads to make 70 more Rick and Morty classics? »
