Rick and Morty: The Anime will finally burst into our dimension this August

More than two years after it was announced, the anime spin-off of Adult Swim’s sci-fi comedy series Rick and Morty is finally bursting onto TV screens next month. On Thursday, Adult Swim shared a new trailer from the upcoming series, and revealed it will premiere on Aug. 15 and will run for a season of 10 episodes.

Directed by Takashi Sano (Tower of God), Rick and Morty: The Anime will (presumably) center on the misadventures of different versions of the blue-haired mad scientist and his hapless grandson than the ones seen in the original series. The anime will see the Smith family embarking on a slew of bizarre anime-inspired escapades, from Morty’s sister Summer and Space Beth fighting the Galactic Federation to Morty falling in love with a mysterious girl who might secretly be a multi-dimensional being. It looks like even Morty’s father Jerry will be getting in on the action, wielding a Dragonslayer-like sword à la Berserk’s Guts and being dangled above the mouth of a gigantic worm monster.

Ian Cardoni and Harry Belden, who began voicing Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith in the show’s seventh season following the firing of co-creator Justin Roiland, will not return to voice their characters in this new series. Instead, Joe Daniels (Haikyu!!) and Gabriel Regojo (Made in Abyss) will voice Rick and Morty in the English language version of Rick and Morty: The Anime, while Youhei Tadano and Keisuke Chiba — who previously voiced Rick and Morty in the Japanese dubbed version of Rick and Morty — will return to voice the characters in the Japanese version.

Episodes of the English language version of Rick and Morty: The Anime will premiere Thursday, Aug. 15, at midnight on Adult Swim and stream on Max the following day. Meanwhile, the Japanese subtitled version of the show will premiere on Saturday, Aug. 17, on Adult Swim’s Toonami block.
