Adult Swim has announced that short-form spin-offs of Rick and Morty, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Robot Chicken, and Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell are in development.
As reported by THR, these four new series are based on characters from or inspired by the previously mentioned shows. Each mini-spinoff will run for 8-10 episodes and will be available across global digital platforms.
The Vindicators is the Rick and Morty spin-off and it stars Supernova, Vance Maxiumus, Alan Rails, Crocubot, and Noob Noob. The series will follow them as they “fight crime, avert genocides and yuk it up without Rick and Morty.” The Vindicators is executive produced by Erica Rosbe, Sarah Carbiener, Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland.
Alabama Jackson is the Robot Chicken spin-off and it stars Donald Faison as the titular Alabama Jackson, a “smooth-talking time traveler who lands in exactly the wrong place at the wrong time, every time.” If he is able to survive long enough to get back to the present, he “just might find something he wasn’t looking for – himself.”Alabama Jackson is a “hilarious, action-packed stop-motion animated series” that is created by Faison and produced by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios.
Continuation of Aqua Teen Hunger Force and fans “will be bestowed with the gift of learning what happens in the later lives of various side characters and villains such as The Mooninites, The Plutonians, MC Pee Pants, The Frat Aliens, Happy Time Harry, Handbanana and The Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past.”
This series will premiere later this year and was created by Matt Maiellaro and Dave Willis.
Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell: The Animated Series is returning for its fifth season, this time in animated internet shorts. The official description teases that “Cruel boss Satan (Matt Servitto), bumbling demon Gary (Henry Zebrowski), and all your other favorites return to America’s beloved workplace comedy set in hell.”
Fans will be able to expect “more laughs, more gore and maybe a talking animal. Seems like if it’s a cartoon they should add a talking animal. Maybe a fish?” The show is a Williams Street production and it is created by Casper Kelly and Dave Willis.
