Before the show returns, screen rant An exclusive chat with creator/star Justin Roiland and star Spencer Grammer to discuss rick and morty Season 6, the show’s long-term success, the evolution of its characters, and more.

community rehabilitation: I would like to start with the two of you really developing the show because the two of you really have a lot of time together and as far as the story goes, like Rick and Morty and Summer are really going to be a core trio show.on how their relationship has evolved, especially going into rick and morty Summer is more confident in season 6 and Rick is more confident in Summer despite having much less experience on screen?

Spencer Grammer: I think she keeps proving herself time and time again, you know, so we have at least five seasons of —

Justin Rowland: She’s more capable, more trustworthy, wiser—

Spencer Grammer: Thank you. tell me more.

Justin Rowland: I think she has more Beth and his genes than Jerry’s. I think Rick can feel that.

Spencer Grammer: And she also has a younger side, you know?

Justin Rowland: Well, Morty too, but he’s just an idiot with too much Jerry in him. But he’s useful, he’s a useful idiot.But yeah, I think if Rick has something you really can’t trust, or he needs to make sure it [gets done], he’ll give it to summer, you know, but yeah, I like them. But it’s been a while, I think.we’ve already [had] Even evidence in season 3, with Morty’s Mind Drummerspecifically.

Spencer Grammer: [It’s like] What you’re saying, she’s actually able to deliver, which is great, but it’s also funny when she actually messes things up, like [when she] Blow the conch shell, and then it all starts all over again, and you’re like, “You did it wrong!” You can put some great comedy in there.

Screen Rant: Well, Spencer and Justin, if my background isn’t obvious, I’m a fan of this show.

Spencer Grammer: Do you like it? [Chuckles]

Justin Roiland No, yes, watch him have all the DVDs. This guy loves DVDs.

Screen Rant: Justin, I was at San Diego Comic-Con recently, and you talked about how season 5, in the writer’s room, handled Mike’s passing, which is why you thought it was kind of weird. So what’s your biggest goal in season 6 of season 5?

Justin Roiland: Every season has its own different, crazy backstory, right? Like I mean, there’s something crazy going on every season.But I think this one is the most stable, then because of that, because [Scott] Mulder now [showrunner] – You know, he’s apparently been here for five days. But it’s just a crazy time. The whole thing is just crazy. This is a transition period. I think now we’re kind of back on a more stable basis, normality and consistency, just quality throughout the season. There are a few dips here and there, but overall I think it’s been a very solid season and I’d like to rank there in the best season.

We’ll see, you know, we kind of never know. The other thing is that Dan and I and the writers, we never know which episodes are going to be big hits. Like we never thought Pickle Rick would be a giant, pop-up thing. I swear to God. We have a few other episodes that we think will be more popular. I mean, we loved this episode, don’t get me wrong. But we don’t know, we don’t know, so when that thing blows up, we’re like, “Oh my God, okay.” And there’s another one we think is going to be important, and nobody cares, so. [Chuckles]

Spencer Grammer: Nobody [Laughs]. I mean, you live in a world of shows, and I don’t think the shows that people like never have — it just needs to be aligned properly. We get a lot of questions like, “How did we get here? How did we get to where this show is so popular?” I keep thinking about it because you don’t really know why, but this space must be Something is missing, right? Like this animation like this, with the way we speak, is very realistic, like I think there is, I think it’s necessary.

We want to be entertained that way, so we have a lot of these shows right now, but for whatever reason they’re still doing well, we’re still doing well — the storytelling is still really good, The characters are still good, the comedy is still fun and relevant, and you still have this world that was built 10 or 11 years ago [Laughs], we’ve been able to maintain that and slowly grow over time. But you never know when it will happen. It’s kind of like the stranger effect, right? Nobody wanted to make that show, and then they made it, and it was a huge phenomenon, and they were like, “We can’t get anyone to make this show for years,” and that’s just a crazy idea, right?

I did another show once and they were like, “Sorry, you have to get out of this,” and I was like, fuck it, that’s the only thing I like. I don’t care if I don’t make any money on this show. This show brings me joy every time I read the script, every time I go in and record the character, I smile and I’m so proud of the work. ‘ I was like, ‘I’m going to work in the office, there’s no way I can’t do this show. “

Justin Rowland: We’ve been very, very lucky to have a cast, and I think that’s part of it, and our cast and performance had chemistry right at the door, even from season 1. That’s a good point you made, and while there might be something missing, I can tell you that we’re having a hard time getting a sci-fi concept through the gate.around that time future world cancelled. Science fiction isn’t profitable, and it’s not doing well. Executives watch sci-fi and they’re like, “Well, no, that’s not — that’s a dirty word.”

So, of course, that was the climate at the time, and then we were able to get past the goalkeeper. Obviously it’s a very smart goalie who knows what they’re doing, let’s make the show we want to make and here we are. But yeah, I’m just a sci-fi junkie, so anything that’s well-crafted, well-written, risky, has consequences, and needs, take its canon and what’s happened seriously, and plan things well , not just sitting still – I’m not mentioning anything specific here, but um-

Spencer Grammer: You’re just throwing things star wars [shade]. Don’t quote me, that’s a joke, okay?I love star wars, OK?

Justin Roiland: I didn’t say it, I didn’t say it.

CBR: I really, really like this show [is] It does a lot of big, wide-ranging sci-fi.Spencer alone, you survived Mad Maxyou killed it Mad Maxyou’re a Voltron, you have Wolverine’s claws, make a stubborn stubborn In the first few episodes of this new year. But the characters are so grounded, so focused, and as you say, speak like people actually speak. As a performer, how do you balance this? And Justin, even a bit creatively? What’s it like to find a balance between hard and high fun, wacky sci-fi and these people are just people and they just bounce off each other?

Spencer Grammer: I mean, I’ve spent most of my life imagining crazy things — I don’t know why, but in general, in my life, I’ve been thinking, “How would I Reacting to this in my life?” To me, it’s very well-founded because like I’m like, “Well, crazy things are happening all the time, you don’t know, there’s probably a comet falling out of the sky right now. , we might all be dying, what would you do?” Like, remember, we all have to die one day, and you have to experience life.

Justin Rowland: [Laughs] When it comes to life, we are all depressed. Or maybe we’re healthy, I don’t know, maybe we’re really healthy. But yeah, I think when performing them, it’s like just having fun and making sure the performance is solid and authentic. We have a very good cast that delivers it all on every line, which is simply amazing. And then it’s stupid, especially with Rick and Morty, sometimes I go off the script and do a little improv between the two of them, you sometimes notice these things, sometimes you don’t, it, it sometimes Well integrated.

It’s always a fun part of the show, but in general, when the s–t hits the fans and it needs to feel real and the characters give the s–t, it’s like yeah, and then it’s like, “Okay Well, we have to sell it with our show,” which is a good show for anyone who cares. But a lot of comics, that’s not their number one, that’s not props or parodies, their main focus is comedy and jokes, jokes, jokes, and we try to do that as well, but we also have consequences and risks and stuff that’s going to span seasons. Not every show has to do this to win me over, but I do appreciate the ones that try because it’s more fun.

But I mean, I f—–g love South Park, it might even be my favorite animated show. They’ll do a little bit here and there and play in a season. Apparently, these days, they’re making these unbelievably crazy serial seasons.
