Rick and Morty season two premieres on Adult Swim this Sunday, July 26 at 11:30pm ET/PT
We’re just a few days away from the return of Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland’s “Rick and Morty.” “Rick and Morty” season two premieres this Sunday, July 26 at 11:30pm ET/PT on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. To promote the new adventures of alcoholic scientific genius Rich Sanchez and his not-quite-as-bright grandson, Morty, Adult Swim has assembled a fun online adventure with “The Rickstaverse,” an innovative Instagram-based online adventure. Watch Rick himself explain how it works in the player below or just click the image at the top of this page to start exploring yourself!
Adult Swim partnered with Carrot Creative to use Instagram’s photo tagging feature to create a fully-connected universe, letting fans explore their favorite planets, dimensions, and landmarks from the series. The Rickstaverse features 25 different levels to explore, stuffed full of fan-favorite characters, Easter eggs, mini-comics, interactive collectibles, and exclusive content from season two.
By tapping once on individual photos, fans can discover tags, which act as portals to different worlds and collectibles. The experience takes advantage of Instagram’s new HD upload standard, with every level, image and video in 1080p HD quality. Fans can experience over 80 different connected Instagram accounts with 11 planets to explore (eight at launch, three to be revealed during season two), more than 1000 high resolution images, eight mini-comics and interactive collectibles with 18 different video outcomes.
In the series, Rick Sanchez (Roiland) is still living with his daughter Beth’s (Sarah Chalke) family and causing more trouble than ever. This season the rest of the family, his son-in-law Jerry (Chris Parnell), grand-daughter Summer (Spencer Grammer) and grand-son Morty (Roiland) are dragged into Rick’s intergalactic adventures, as he faces new threats and mysteries of his secret past are revealed. Can the family survive Rick’s insanity and all the chaos the universe throws at them?
“Rick and Morty” is created and executive produced by Dan Harmon (“Community”) and Justin Roiland (“Adventure Time”).
