It looks like Rick and Morty are getting their first spin-off, as Adult Swim has ordered four short-form spinoffs of their classic IPs. It is joining the likes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Robot Chicken, and Pretty Face Is Going To Hell. The upcoming new entry will see the return of Erica Rosbe, Sarah Carbiener, Dan Harmon, and Justin Roiland. It will see the return of the Vindicators, who met their untimely doom in a Saw-inspired episode of the series. Rosbe and Carbiener had the following to share on the upcoming spin-off
We are thrilled to work in the Rick and Morty universe again, and these shorts are an incredible opportunity to explore what happens in the aftermath of the Vindicators saving (or destroying) worlds. We’re so excited to show how this team of superheroes is plenty dysfunctional whether Rick’s around to have half of them murdered or not.
It seems that the series will explore their time before the events of the episode Vindicators 3: The Return of Woldender. Hollywood Reporter’s description confirms the return of Supernova and Noob-Noob, who survived those events. Yet, it also includes Vance Maximus, Alan Rails, and Crocubot that found their untimely end during the events. There is a noticeable absence of Million Ants, who had a major role in the episode. Perhaps we also get to spend time with the villain Worldender, who was one of the many sacrificial lambs of Rick’s drunken Saw game.
