The series will adapt material from the main series, but Rick and Morty: The Anime is also set to have its own standing a an original work. Sano commented:
The multiverse-straddling exploits of Rick and the gang pose challenges to the family bond, but they always rise to the occasion. It’s such a life affirming sight, and Jerry is no exception. I am honored to have been given an opportunity to tell a new story about this amazing family. I hope you enjoy their adventures!Takashi SanoTakashi Sano
