There are currently six seasons of 'Rick and Morty', but according to the creators of the mad scientist cartoon, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, the show could go on "forever". Daunting for some, reassuring for others, the news has certainly mad a splash in the world of infinite realities.
It all started back in 2013, when grandpa Rick moved into his daughter's family home and he wrangled his grandson Morty into an adventure —they set off to find mega-tree seeds in another universe. Ahh, those were the days.
Things were a lot simpler back then. Now, 'Ricky and Morty' deals with hundreds of multi-dimensional Ricks and Mortys and after watching some of the latest episodes, we've often needed to just go straight to bed. It's too much brain work.
Apparently, the work will never be done if the creators have anything to do with it. “I think the show could run forever,” Roiland said of the sixth season in an interview with TheWrap, “The show could run as long as we want it to".
"As far as the longevity of the show, to me, it just feels infinite. That’s kind of the easy part. And I think that might be the cause of some frustration on the fans’ part, because my original commitment to just, I think a good TV show is one that lasts 1000 episodes."
"You don’t design a paper airplane to land at a certain spot a certain distance for you. A good paper airplane is the one that stays in the air forever, and that’s impossible but you fold it in a way that that’s the goal."
Going forward, the creators plan to release a season every single year, "“This is the strangest thing I’ve ever said about the show and it still feels unreal to say it, but we’ll be doing a season a year now,” Harmon explained.
We guess, in a world where there are infinite possibilities and wherein anything can happen, the creators are dead right. This show could defy the laws of the universe and actually go on forever. Spoopy.
