While the third season of the hit adult science fiction animated series “Rick and Morty” has yet to premiere, fans were given a taste a weird and eccentric one at that of what the upcoming season of the show might look like when it finally gets released.
In an interview with New York Magazine, the cast and crew of “Rick and Morty” performed a live and completely improvised mini-episode titled “Summer’s Future” spanning four minutes. Present during the interview were co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, writer Ryan Ridley, and voice actress Spencer Grammer.
In the mini-episode, Rick and Morty (both voiced by Roiland) were joined by the latter’s younger sister named Summer (Grammer). In the first scene, Summer approached the two asking for some assistance with her college applications. Summer was trying to relay her thoughts to Rick, but Rick was busy doing some kind of experiment on Morty involving at least 120 cc worth of feces being injected to Morty’s knees.
In the course of the live episode, Morty was killed by the experiment, but Rick assured Summer that there was a replacement for him already. In the final moments of the performance, Roiland hinted that the scene was the beginning of the “Rick and Morty” movie. However, no other details about the movie were mentioned.
The popular animated series is known for improvisation of its scripts. Avid fans of the show already know that there have been multiple instances where the voice actors were only given a rough outline of an episode or scene, and then they would be the ones to provide the lines for it on the spot.
The third season of “Rick and Morty” is set to be released sometime later this year. On the other hand, fans can relive past adventures as “Rick and Morty: The Complete Second Season” is now available on Blu-ray and DVD, as well as via digital download or streaming.
