We'll admit to not having checked in very much with 'Community' creator Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland's trippy Adult Swim sci-fi comedy 'Rick and Morty,' though we've noticed its rave reviews and surprisingly competitive ratings. That said, fans are in for some seriously good news: Adult Swim has officially picked up 'Rick and Morty' for season 2!
If you watched too much 80s TV, you're familiar with 'Bosom Buddies,' the short-lived ABC sitcom that is best known for launching the career of Tom Hanks...and also for it's classic opening credits. To pay homage to that classic opening, Paul Rudd and Adam Scott decided to recreate the entire thing, shot-for-shot, with a little help from some friends.
It'll be a month or so yet before Dan Harmon's voice returns to 'Community' season 5 for the January 2 premiere, but why wait that long for a fix? The 'Community' creator's new 'Back to the Future'-inspired Adult Swim series 'Rick and Morty' is available to watch online right now, featuring the voices of series creator Justin Roiland, '30 Rock' alum Chris Parnell and Sarah Chalke!
Adult Swim's 'Childrens Hospital' spinoff (if it can even so be called) 'NTSF: SD: SUV::' will soon premiere its third season on Adult Swim beginning July 25, and as per usual the show has recruited a number of impressive guest stars for the short-form action thriller. Not only will 'The Hangover Part III' star Ed Helms show up to reprise an earlier role he'd played on the series (with a new twist), but so too will 'Arrested Development' star Alia Shawkat and '30 Rock' vet Jack McBrayer join the cast!
Along with the wealth of great shows coming back this June (like 'The Killing,' 'Falling Skies,' 'True Blood' and 'Dexter'), our much-beloved 'Venture Bros.' will return for season 5 on Adult Swim this very Sunday at midnight. Adult Swim has issued a few action-packed trailers to date, but are you ready to check in with Doc, Brock, Hank, Dean and a world of others in three all-new trailers for 'The Venture Bros.' season 5?
The network pickups of the last few days might have dominated the news, but that hasn't made us any less excited for Adult Swim's new offerings in the coming year. In addition to a pickup for 'Community' creator Dan Harmon's new series 'Rick and Morty,' Adult Swim has announced a new 'Robot Chicken' DC Comics special sequel, and an hour-long 'Metalocalypse' special amid their new offerings. Get the full list of Adult Swim arrivals inside!
Merciful Zeus, we're just weeks away from the long-awaited season 5 premiere of 'The Venture Bros.' The series lengthy animation process often puts a hefty wait in between seasons (the first episodes aired in 2003), also delaying the season 5 premiere from May 19 to June 2, but good old Doc and Jackson have put together the perfect clip to tide us over. Catch up on ten years of 'The Venture Bros,' with an all-new retrospective inside!
It's been too long since we've had any fresh episodes of 'The Venture Bros.,' but such is the cruel mistress of the show's lengthy production schedule. The new season of the Johnny Quest-spoofing Adult Swim series that has since grown into pure pop culture parody will premiere on May 19, but apart from the recent trailer, how would you like an early sneak peak? Warning, 'Game of Thrones' roleplay awaits inside!
We may not get enough 'Robot Chicken' in our daily lives even after eight years, but that hasn't stopped the long-running Adult Swim series from cranking out six seasons worth of gut-busting stop-motion pop culture comedy, and multiple specials along the way. This Sunday's sixth season finale episode "Immortal" will hop around as much as any 'Robot Chicken' episode, but also take aim at a favored subject of the series and nerd culture in general, 'The Avengers' director Joss Whedon! Preview the terror of zombie Joss Whedon inside!
Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter of 'Stella' and MTV's 'The State' fame are at it again with this new faux-infomercial series for Adult Swim, and you can watch the first full installment right now. So you should do that.
