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!

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!
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.

'Community' may continue to be in dire straights given that NBC still hasn't picked a return airdate for the 13-episode fourth season, but ousted creator Dan Harmon is still sitting pretty. In addition to several other projects in the works at both CBS and FOX, Adult Swim is the first to show its faith in the former showrunner by picking up Harmon's animated series 'Rick and Morty' to series. That said, how many episodes is the order for, and what story will it tell?
