Rick and Morty: The Anime is an upcoming Japanese anime spin-off television series of Rick and Morty. It is set to premiere on Adult Swim on August 15, 2024 and Max on August 16, 2024.[1]

Premise[]

Based on the Emmy-award-winning adult animated series, Rick and Morty: The Anime is a 10-episode adventure debuting on Adult Swim and Max. Director Takashi Sano (Tower of God) previously directed two anime shorts, “Rick and Morty vs. Genocider” and “Summer Meets God (Rick Meets Evil)”, which received widespread fan and critical acclaim upon release, generating over 10 million combined views on Adult Swim digital platforms. While Sano will adapt themes and events of the main series, Rick and Morty: The Anime will stand on its own as an original work.

It will be directed by Takashi Sano and produced by Telecom Animation Film. The series will premiere on Adult Swim and Max, then known as HBO Max. While the themes and events of the main series will be adapted, Rick and Morty: The Anime will stand on its own as an original work. [2]
