A new anime-inspired teaser for the upcoming fourth season of Rick and Morty has been released.
The fifteen-second clip, posted to the official Rick and Morty Twitter account, showcases versions of the characters by way of classic anime. Both Rick and Morty are way more action-oriented and muscular as a result, with Rick wearing goggles and a form-fitting suit under his lab coat, while Morty is seen wearing a yellow superhero costume.
The two leading men aren’t the only characters to appear in this new action-packed style, either. Both Summer and Beth also show up wielding laser guns and a redesign to match Rick and Morty. Other deep cuts to the series are featured up in the clip, including appearances by Squanchy, Snowball, Armothy and the Cromulons before the teaser ends. Of course, Jerry is nowhere to be found, but is there any way to make Jerry actually seem cool? Even in anime?
There’s no indication when the fourth season will premiere, but the crew (including Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland) is hard at work on the series and don’t expect the gaps between seasons to be as long as they’ve been in the past.
