Community creator Dan Harmon’s new series, the animated Adult Swim sci-fi comedy Rick and Morty, has been renewed for a second season. Adult Swim has yet to confirm the renewal, but one of the writers who was added for Season 2, Matt Roller (Community), posted a picture of the show’s Season 2 writing staff on Twitter earlier this week that has since been removed. There’s no word on how many episodes the new season will be.
Co-created by Harmon and Justin Roiland and loosely based on Roiland’s failed Channel 101 pilot and subsequent web series The Real Animated Adventures of Doc and Mharti, it’s a Back to the Future-esque story about a crazy old inventor who takes his grandson on wild adventures. Season 1, which premiered on Adult Swim in December, is currently airing new episodes Mondays at 10:30 and has been doing well in the ratings so far.
UPDATE: The renewal has now been confirmed from Dan Harmon via Twitter:
