Rick and Morty Season 8 is now within the works for a launch within the close to future with Grownup Swim, and there are few issues we have to see in motion within the new episodes! Rick and Morty Season 7 made large modifications each behind the scenes and within the tales themselves because the titular duo went by means of some large character shifts by means of the course of the episodes. The season noticed not just some main modifications to the general canon with main villains returning, however left some seeds that may doubtless repay in even larger methods within the sequence’ future.

Rick and Morty Season 8 has but to announce when it is going to be releasing with Grownup Swim, but when the earlier schedule as seen with the most recent seasons continues, it would doubtless be on deck for a launch later this yr (or on the newest, early 2025). With Season 7 dropping some curious story beats for the long run, there are some things we’re hoping to see occur within the subsequent wave of episodes. These embrace some returns, and extra involvement from different characters we did not see a lot of in Season 7.

What Ought to Occur in Rick and Morty Season 8

  • The Remainder of the Smith Household Want EpisodesRick and Morty Season 7 had some superb character targeted episodes for the titular duo, however the remainder of the household had been pushed apart for almost all of its run. This meant there was a scarcity of Beth and House Beth, Jerry, and Summer time for among the extra story targeted episodes. Season 8 wants extra from them, and to increase extra of their characters like we bought to see with Rick and Morty this time round.
  • Diane Sanchez Flashback – Diane made a significant “comeback” with the Season 7 finale, and it allowed for a distinct type of reunion that confirmed followers the dynamic between Rick and Diane that followers by no means bought to see. With these glimpses into Rick’s previous, it might be cool if Season 8 gave us an prolonged flashback into Rick assembly Diane (because it was hinted to how they met within the finale). That manner we get much more of the Diane we won’t get in every other means, and maybe get extra of Beth’s reference to Diane as properly. Talking of…
  • Beth and Diane Moments – We bought a quick scene where Beth bought to hang around with a model of her mom, and this can be a relationship the sequence actually hasn’t had time to discover as a result of it has been so targeted on Rick taking up Rick Prime. Now that the villain is out of the way in which, that is all a part of the required restoration to really evolve every of those characters and permit Beth to maneuver on from the previous too.
  • Summer time Goes Evil – The “Night time Household” episode was such a enjoyable detour from the remainder of the sequence as a result of it proved how nice of a villain Summer time may very well be, and constructing on the brand new belief she has with Rick, Season 8 might take this even additional and problem them with a succesful, but villainous model of Summer time. With different family members getting their very own variants prior to now, it is time for Summer time to get one as properly.
  • Evil Morty’s Subsequent Plan – With Evil Morty turning into the key antagonist following Rick Prime’s defeat, and with out one other menace within the interim, it’s going to be nice to see the subsequent step of no matter Evil Morty needs for Rick sooner or later. A small tease to guide us into the subsequent season can be sufficient, however a full episode bringing again the villain and evolving it in new methods can be even higher.
  • A New Villain – Talking, with Evil Morty being the subsequent main season to season villain, there’s now a niche to fill in for a brand new common occurring foe for Rick and Morty to face. Particularly now that President Curtis has grow to be extra of Rick’s rival than simply one other foe.
