Is this the perfect pivot for a show that is on the slide?

After the conclusion of the seventh season of “Rick and Morty” in December 2023, fans were thrilled to hear about the upcoming spinoff series. Adult Swim announced that a 10-episode anime spin-off of the beloved adult animated series was in the works. With last season not featuring co-creator and OG voice of the show’s titular characters, even the most dedicated fans (including myself) noting a slump in energy from the series. Something ain’t hitting…

Since the announcement of Rick and Morty: The Anime, however, anticipation has been sky-high, and finally, Adult Swim has delivered with a first-look teaser, giving us a glimpse into the upcoming adventures of Rick and Morty:
