The Rick And Morty multiverse is one rife with spinoff potential. Anatomy Park. Reverse Giraffe. The Adventures Of Stealy. Hell, even a high school-focused miniseries featuring Summer and her battle with Coach Feratu could work.
On the one hand I'm amazed it's taken so long for a Rick And Morty spinoff to materialise. On the other hand... well, you know how long we usually have to wait between seasons of the main event - why ask for more when we're already so hungry? The good news is that it turns out we didn't have to ask: Adult Swim has announced a brand-new spinoff series based on Morty's favourite superhero team, The Vindicators.
Take a look at the trailer for Rick And Morty season five below!
The Vindicators will reunite the superhero team we first met in the season three episode of Rick And Morty, 'The Vindicators 3: The Return Of Worldender'. In this episode, they were put through a grueling gauntlet of Saw-inspired challenges by a blackout-drunk Rick. Without him around, I'd wager the heroes will have a slightly better time of it.
Adult Swim has confirmed that the spinoff will bring back Supernova, Vance Maxiumus, Alan Rails, Crocubot, and Noob Noob as "they fight crime, avert genocides, and yuk it up without Rick and Morty."
"We are thrilled to work in the Rick And Morty universe again, and these shorts are an incredible opportunity to explore what happens in the aftermath of the Vindicators saving (or destroying) worlds," said The Vindicators executive producers Sarah Carbiener and Erica Rosbe. "We're so excited to show how this team of superheroes is plenty dysfunctional whether Rick's around to have half of them murdered or not."
Michael Ouweleen, president of Adult Swim, added: "We see it as our mission to put something hilarious within a fingers' swipe of anyone on the planet. These shorts are a way to meet the next generation of Adult Swim fans where they are, while giving our creators another format to play in and innovate around."
There's no set release date for The Vindicators just yet, but the 8-10 episode season is expected to hit digital platforms late this year or early next year. Meanwhile, season five of Rick And Morty airs June 20.
