Adult Swim has reached a long-term production deal with the creators of its hit animated series Rick and Morty, the network announced Thursday.
The deal between Adult Swim and show creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland calls for the network to air 70 new episodes of its long-running animated series, which follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe, according to network officials.
Harmon and Roiland announced the deal on social media earlier today with an Instagram post:
In celebration of the deal, fans can look forward to the return of the highly successful country-wide tour of the Rickmobile, which hits the road on May 17 starting in Atlanta, GA. The tour will make more than 50 stops, including San Diego Comic Con in July, according to the network.
