Last updated on 25 September 2017

Rick and Morty is an American animated science fiction television sitcom that premiered on December 2, 2013, on Adult Swim.[1] The series follows Rick, an alcoholic scientist, and his easily distressed, chronically underachieving grandson, Morty, on their adventures to alternate dimensions. These adventures commonly cause trouble for Morty's family, who are often caught up in the mayhem.

In August 2015, Adult Swim renewed the series for a third season, which will consist of 10 episodes.[2][3] The first episode of season 3 premiered without any prior announcement on April 1, 2017, with the rest of the season beginning on July 30, 2017.[4]

As of September 24, 2017, 30 episodes of Rick and Morty have aired.
