Rick and Morty premiered on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim in 2013. It has run for three seasons so far and is expected to be renewed for a fourth.
The animated series follows the adventures of the eccentric, alcoholic, mad genius Rick Sanchez and his naive, teenage grandson Morty Smith. Rick and Morty travel the galaxy and across infinite dimensions using Rick's various inventions, like his portal gun and his flying car. Also featured is Rick's daughter Beth, who went over a decade without seeing her father. She dreamed of being a human surgeon, but instead ended up as a horse surgeon. There is also her dim-witted and mediocre husband Jerry, who is the butt of every joke, and Morty's older sister Summer.
Rick and Morty's unusual and often dark premise has received universal acclaim from critics and fans alike. It has been praised for its originality, creativity, and off-beat sense of humor. The third season, which ran from July 2017 to October 2017, was the highest rated comedy on television among adults and had the highest ratings in the history of the Adult Swim programming block.
