The series is set in ancient Greece and will hit your televisions in 2022.
And Harmon is heading back to network television. The co-creator of the beloved series Community Y Rick and morty will bring a new animated comedy to Fox, which will debut in 2022. The untitled series is reportedly set in ancient Greece and will focus “on a flawed family of humans, gods and monsters trying to rule one of the world’s first cities. world without killing each other. ”
This is what Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, FOX Entertainment, said in a statement:
Let Dan Harmon turn the myths of Greek civilization into a remarkably sharp commentary on politics, celebrities, and pop culture today. This project is an incredibly irreverent family comedy told by one of the most resourceful storytellers in town. We are proud to be partners with Dan on this series, which strengthens our hold in the animation space and as we continue to build FOX Entertainment marks an important first step for us with our first wholly owned scripted property. ”
Harmon has a history with network television that can charitably be described as problematic. Writer / Director / EP Created Community for NBC in 2009, and although it garnered an extremely devoted cult following and some Emmy nominations, the behind-the-scenes tensions were well documented and Harmon was replaced as showrunner for season 4. (He would return for season 5 and a season 6 that aired on the short-lived Yahoo streaming service). Of course, he would continue to co-create the animated sci-fi comedy series. Rick and morty with Justin roiland, who has won one of the most loyal fandoms you can imagine and is still ready to deliver at least 70 more episodes to Adult Swim.
Harmon’s more animated madness will never be a bad thing, and I’m very intrigued by the future of this show. The only two things Rick and morty is known to more than his fan base and “Pickle Rick” is how long it usually takes each season. But that’s all speculation for another time, as Fox notes that “voice-overs for the show is currently underway and will be announced in the coming months.” Until then, here is an update from Harmon on Rick and morty seasons 5 and 6.
