Adult Swim Releases Rick And Morty Mini-Episode And It's Very Intense

Adult Swim has delivered a mini-Rick and Morty episode while we wait for the second half of season four.

It's been months since the first five episodes of the latest season dropped and fans are desparate for more material.

Well, in an effort to abate riots in the streets for more R+M, the network that produces the show gave us a short, strange, bizarre, violent and intense version of the series.

Titled 'Samurai & Shogun', the two main characters we know and love have been transformed into anime.

Rick is dressed in a white kimono and is seen sitting on what looks like a Morty transportation device.

The patriarch of the family is suddenly confronted by a bunch of other Rick ninjas, dressed in black, hooded robes.

It's implied that Samurai Rick stole Shogun (a military dictator appointed by the Emperor) Morty and the ninja Ricks were going to kill him as a result.

In scenes very reminiscent of Kill Bill, Samurai Rick makes quick work of the ninjas, slicing and dicing them in rapid succession.

Animated blood explodes out of the ninjas before Samurai Rick is confronted with a giant Rick.

After defeating the huge Rick, the Samurai appears to be hit by hallucinogenic substance that temporarily stuns him.

But, just before the ninjas are able to kill their enemy, Samurai Rick snaps out of his daze and kills the remaining Ricks.

He then faces off against the apparent leader of the ninja Ricks, who quickly gets decapitated during a brief confrontation.

Samurai Rick then opens a portal and the mini-episode ends.

It's wild, unexpected and incredible.

Sadly though, this will only fuel people wanting more Rick and Morty.

There's no word on when the next batch of episodes will be released so we just have to wait patiently.

In the meantime, the co-creator of R+M, Justin Roiland, has made a new show called Solar Opposites and it looks amazing.

The series itself follows the zany antics of a family of four aliens who escape the destruction of their homeland and crash-land on Earth, where they'll have to start a brand new life.

Luckily for them, their spaceship lands on top of an empty house that's ready to move in. From there, it looks like a whole load of carnage, mayhem and a whole lot of sci-fi fun will ensue - including (according to the trailer) 'man caves', recreational drugs, bullying, animal rights, zombie teenagers, magicians and black holes.

There's also, it seems, something called 'the pupa'. And gooblers. No, we have no idea, either. Oh, and there's a lot of death as well. At least, there is in the trailer.

It's all done with the traditional lack of subtlety that fans of Rick And Morty have come to love since that show began at the tail end of 2013.

Solar Opposites isn't short of recognisable voices either - A-listers Christina Hendricks and Alfred Molina are involved, as well as Goldbergs star Sean Giambron, Girls Trip's Tiffany Haddish and comedian Mary Mack.

It will be released on Hulu on May 8.
