No. 1 young adult TV destination Adult Swim wasn’t on the green in San Diego this year, but still managed to offer up some exciting first-looks at new shows and fan favorites during the virtual Comic-Con@Home experience.
The network unveiled more from Blade Runner: Black Lotus and new family comedy Teenage Euthanasia, before diving deeper into fan favorites Tuca & Bertie and Rick and Morty.
During the Blade Runner: Black Lotus panel, Adult Swim and Crunchyroll shared an exclusive look at the first-ever trailer and never-before-seen key art. Moderated by Jason DeMarco (co-creator of Toonami/Senior Vice President & Creative Director for Adult Swim), viewers heard from the creative team and voice talent as they discussed the new anime series originating from the legendary Blade Runner franchise.
Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Alessia Cara, whose original song “Feel You Now” is featured in the new Blade Runner: Black Lotus trailer, will also have music featured in the highly-anticipated series.
Soaring on Adult Swim this summer, fans joined moderator Adam Conover for a star-studded conversation with Lisa Hanawalt (creator and executive producer) and special guests Raphael Bob-Waksberg (executive producer) and Nicole Byer (voice of Plant Teen 2, The Chill Bird) as they revealed a sneak peek of the next episode of Tuca & Bertie (S2 episodes premiere Sundays at 11:30 ET/PT).
Things went interdimensional as fans relived the best of Rick and Morty Season 5 alongside Dan Harmon (co-creator and executive producer), Scott Marder (showrunner and executive producer), Chris Parnell (voice of Jerry), Sarah Chalke (voice of Beth), Spencer Grammer (voice of Summer), Brandon Johnson (moderator) and special guests. New episodes of Rick and Morty premiere Sundays at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
Lastly, Adult Swim shared a behind-the-scenes look at Teenage Euthanasia, a brand-new animated coming-of-all-ages comedy series that touches on death, family, and accidental resurrection. Moderated by Tim Heidecker, the panel features Alyson Levy (co-creator), Alissa Nutting (co-creator), Scott Adsit (co-director and co-executive producer), Maria Bamford (voice of Trophy Fantasy), Jo Firestone (voice of Euthanasia “Annie” Fantasy) and Bebe Neuwirth (voice of Baba).
