Dan Harmon, the co-creator of Rick and Morty, has a new program for Apple TV+. According to The Wrap, the streaming service has purchased Harmon’s Strange Planet (who is also the brains behind Community).
Strange World is based from Nathan Pyle’s online comic and graphic novels of the same name and is characterized as a “whimsical and humorous” series that “tells meaningful and passionate stories about creatures on a faraway planet somewhat unlike our own”.
Apple Studios and animation studio ShadowMachine, which most recently worked on BoJack Horseman, will produce the project. Strange Planet has yet to be given a release date, and it is unknown when the program will begin production. Harmon said earlier this year that he will be creating a new original animated series for Fox Entertainment.
The showrunner will be Amalia Levari, who earned a Primetime Creative Arts Emmy for her work on Cartoon Network’s Over the Garden Wall. Alison Brie revealed she will be joining the cast of the acclaimed cartoon program ahead of the next season.
Meanwhile, the fifth season of Rick and Morty premiered in the United States last month with one key difference: the new episodes are less standalone than their predecessors. The series, which has yet to be named, will be set in mythological ancient Greece and will follow a family of humans, gods, and monsters as they attempt to govern one of the world’s earliest towns. Meanwhile, Rick And Morty Season 5 has premiered on E4 in the United Kingdom.
From 2009 through 2015, Brie featured in Harmon’s oddball collegiate comedy Community. In other Rick and Morty news, Adult Swim just revealed that The Vindicators, a short-form spin-off of Rick and Morty, is in the works.
The titular superhero team will be played by Supernova, Vance Maxiumus, Alan Rails, Crocubot, and Noob Noob, who first debuted in Rick And Morty’s third season episode four, “Vindicators 3: The Return of Worldender.”
