WATCH: ‘Rick and Morty’ teases fans with interdimensional chaos in ‘Rick’s game’ clip
As fans wait for their favorite grandfather-grandson duo to return to the small screen, the show’s creators have dropped a new, weird and chaotic promo — as it should be with “Rick and Morty”.
Titled “Rick’s Game”, the 15-second clip shows Morty being caught in interdimensional mayhem inside what seems to be a virtual world, giving fans a glimpse of what they may expect in the latter half of season 4.
The clip, which featured a wildly different animation style from the usual, was posted on the show’s official Twitter page on Feb. 28.
It starts with a line of Mortys being rounded up by a group of gun-wielding Mr. Meeseeks. All hell then breaks loose after one Mr. Meeseeks pushes a Morty through a portal, sending him to a dimension full of farting butts, which he runs on to get to another portal.
He then emerges on a planet where he was chased by a wolf-like monster – which was on fire – before he escaped through another portal. Morty then finds himself being spit at by hairy, naked, beer-drinking cyclops before he ended up on another dimension where he was swat with a spatula by a gigantic, humanoid, insect baby — just typical “Rick and Morty” stuff.

The clip ends with the reveal that Morty’s interdimensional journey was just in a video game being played by a bunch of Ricks, just as grandfathers do.
The promo came with no updates on when the second half of season 4 will be released. The first half of season 4 (five episodes) was released from November to December last year, before the show went on a break.
It is safe to say that fans can expect a lot more “Rick and Morty” in the future, as showrunners Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon confirmed back in 2018 that the show has been renewed for 70 more episodes. They have released five, so far, which are the first half of season 4.
As the first three seasons of “Rick and Morty” have had 10 episodes each, following this same formula will allow the show to have enough episodes to reach its 10th season. JB
