    From Zombies to Jean-Claude Van Damme: unexpected twists await in Rick and Morty's return

    Every Rick and Morty enthusiast knows Jerry Smith — the often down-on-luck father with that never-ending search for purpose. But season 7 promises a Jerry like we've never seen before. In a move that could only come from the twisted brilliance of Adult Swim.

    The newest teaser showcases Jerry striking the iconic Jean-Claude Van Damme pose between two chairs in dim candlelight. It's not just a tribute; it's a declaration: Jerry Smith is back, and he's ripped! "Jerry's ripped muscular body and iconic stance hint at a new journey — perhaps one filled with more than just unemployment checks."

    More than Just a 'Jerry-centric' Season:

    As if a transformed Jerry wasn't enough to get the fandom chattering, the teaser drops even more bombshells. Zombies? Check. Rick and Morty embarking on an absurd tongue-sledding adventure? Double check. And let's not overlook Summer's newfound strength, literally lifting Rick overhead. It seems the entire Smith family is set to embark on surreal escapades this season.

    Then there are those titles for the upcoming episodes — each hinting at a wilder adventure than the last. With episodes like "How Poopy Got His Poop Back" and "Mort: Ragnarick," it's clear that fans are in for an exhilarating roller coaster of emotions and, most importantly, laughter.

    But, let's address the elephant in the room: the departure of the legendary Justin Roiland. With allegations overshadowing his exit and Dan Harmon stepping up, many wonder if the essence of Rick and Morty will remain intact. The show has been a whirlwind of complex plots, beloved characters, and dark humor, but with this significant change, only time will tell if that essence remains.

    Tune In or Miss Out:

    The long wait is almost over! Clear your calendar for October 15, 2023, because that's when the magic returns on Adult Swim and Max. Until then, we recommend diving into previous seasons or perhaps taking up split-challenges à la Jerry Smith!
