The new year didn't wait long to give us a new Rick and Morty.....promo, one that may or may not have any bearing on the upcoming season. (Based on the show's track record, it isn't even guaranteed to air in 2019.) However, unlike some other recent short ads for the show - which tend to just feature fun animation styles and feel more like Adult Swim's clever way of placating us while they make us wait for new episodes - this one might have hinted at a major return in season four. After some madcap action--reminding us all that Rick, in any form, stands tall on the infinite Morty food chain--arguably the greatest threat to their relationship, and possibly survival, shows up. On today's Nerdist News host Jessica Chobot grabs a portal gun to travel deep into the show's latest promo to examine if it confirms our theory about the true identity of the show's most dangerous villain, Evil Morty.
If this promo is merely a hint we're getting closer to an actual release date for season four, that's still a great start to the year. But if this is also a clue that Evil Morty will return and prove us right, 2019 is going to be super squanchy.But what do you think? Is this promo a harbinger of Evil Morty's return in season four and that our theory about him is correct? Or is this just another fun video meant to keep us calm while we continue our long wait for new episodes? Portal into our comments section below to let us know what you think.
