We don’t all have $15,000 to spend on McNugget sauce, but there are other ways to get a Rick and Morty fix before Season 3’s summer premiere. Enter a Virtual Rick-ality, as Adult Swim brings back one of the show’s best gags to tease the immersive experience.
Rick and Morty may have declared its entire series a quest for McDonald’s old Mulan McNugget sauce, but even Rick would probably draw a line here. An old packet of the Szechuan dipping sauce retailed for an ungodly sum on eBay, making Rick’s quest that much harder.
Amid the delightful chaos of Rick and Morty Season 3 releasing its long-awaited premiere on April Fools’, “The Rickshank Redemption” set off another craze: McDonald’s Mulan-themed Szechuan dipping sauce. Within hours, Rick and Morty fans were petitioning the fast-food chain to resurrect the McNugget dip, and McDonald’s itself responded in kind.
We happy few got to enjoy Rick and Morty’s Season 3 premiere early, but April Fools’ has come and gone, and with it the streaming loop. At the very least, it sounds like Season 3 will have a formal premiere later this summer, while Adult Swim has uploaded all of the bizarre promos from the stream.
Rick and Morty Season 3 doesn’t yet have a premiere date, but you know what it does have? A premiere! Yes, no April Fools’ about it, the actual Rick and Morty Season 3 premiere is now streaming on Adult Swim in its entirety.
We’re slowly acclimating to the concept of our favorite shows taking their sweet time between seasons, though Adult Swim’s Venture Bros. has spent close to thirteen years on its six runs. Now, a new post from star James Urbaniak reveals that Season 7 production is underway, and Rusty’s back at it.
Every revival brings with it one inevitable question: whether revisiting opens the door to a full-scale continuation. The same could be asked of Adult Swim’s coming Samurai Jack Season 5, the first in over a decade, though creator Genndy Tartakovsky definitively confirms that the March revival will bring an end to Jack’s journey.
We’ve seen more than a few looks at Samurai Jack’s Adult Swim return for Season 5, but does that famous Genndy Tartakovsky action still hold up? Hands down, as revealed in a rip-roaring, robot-slashing and heavy metal clip from Jack’s futuristic return.
The sizable delay in premiering Rick and Morty Season 3 has many a fan on edge, and where would Adult Swim be without the willingness to have a little fun? Surely they’d never run around and desert us, after promising to debut the first scene of Season 3, right?
We’ve already seen one look at Samurai Jack’s Adult Swim return for Season 5, but it’s worth wondering how the style has evolved in a decade or so since its Cartoon Network days. Allow Genndy Tartakovsky and composer Tyler Bates to explain in an extended featurette for the March premiere.
