In a tongue-in-cheek trailer for Rick and Morty season 7, Beth and Summer deliver a promo teaser without actually leaving the couch.
There is no new footage from the upcoming season revealed; instead, the duo speculates on what could happen in the next round of adventures for everyone's favorite mad scientist and his nephew.
Speaking of Rick and Morty, the added layer to the playful promo is that (just like the previously released promos for the animated sci-fi sitcom) it doesn't reveal the new voice actors for Rick and/or Morty. The main protagonists of the show were previously voiced by series co-creator, Justin Roiland. It was previously disclosed that sound-alikes would replace Roiland however, their identity has not been disclosed at this time.
Adult Swim viewers are almost 100% certain that the new voice actors will not be heard until the season 7 launches next month.
Still, there are a number of interesting topics teased by Beth and Summer in the promo, including:
- Will Morty finally date Jessica?
- Will Jerry get a job?
- Old friends like Gearhead might pop up.
- Will Rick catch Rick Prime or Evil Morty?
The upcoming season, which has previously teased a Rick Prime vs Rick showdown prior to this current promo, will premiere on October 15 at 11PM est/pst.
The creative team for Rick and Morty have previously indicated that they are anxious to prove to fans of the show that they can produce something that not only matches but surpasses past seasons. Season 7 will be the first Rick and Morty season in which Roiland will not be involved in any way.
In a press release, Adult Swim President Michael Ouweleen stated, "It’s happening thanks to the talent of the entire show team, we can all enjoy 10 new episodes that yet again raise the bar for comedy and animation. This season proves that the geniuses at work on Rick and Morty are just getting started."
Hulu also dropped Roiland from Solar Opposites, another show he co-created. Roiland was also replaced as a voice actor on that show by Dan Stevens and the general consensus has been that most fans got used to Stevens after a single episode.
We'll have to wait until October 15 to find out if the same thing occurs with Rick and Morty.
Rick and Morty is the Emmy award-winning half-hour animated hit comedy series on Adult Swim that follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe.
