Dan Harmon put his particular comedy stamp on his projects, making classics like Community and the extremely popular animated comedy Rick and Morty. Although the latter is a combined effort of Harmon and Justin Roiland (Gravity Falls, Solar opposites), the two creatives had the opportunity to develop their animation skills via other platforms.
Roiland is two seasons away in his new original series Hulu Solar opposites, which looks like a sister series to Rick and Morty. Meanwhile, Dan Harmon is developing Krapopolis, a new animated series from FOX slated to premiere in 2022.
Deadline has now signaled that Jordan Young (The Simpsons, Bojack Horseman) was selected as both showrunner and executive producer for Krapopolis. Set in mythical ancient Greece and centered around an imperfect family of humans, gods and monsters trying to rule one of the world’s first cities without killing each other, the show is in good hands with these two veterans of animation.
What do you think of these developments? Are you excited about Krapopolis, or would you prefer Harmon to focus his attention on more Rick and morty content? Either way, be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place!
Dan Harmon fans will love our chat with Rick and morty Summer Smith voice actress Spencer Grammer, who we’ve included below!
Spencer Grammer is in the house! The actress and singer behind Rick & Morty’s Summer Smith stops by the show to talk about the character now that she’s voiced her for a decade!
We dig deep into Summer’s character arc and how a blend of her own personality and writing has contributed to that growth. While discussing which characters she’d like to see the show again, we shared a lot of laughs about Bucket Head, Snowball, Summer’s ex, and more.
We’re joking about a potential crossover where she reunites with her ex-boyfriend in the Solar Opposites wall, and which dimension Summer would choose to visit with Rick’s portal gun – The Neverending Story.
The conversation turns to his father, Frasier and X-Men star Kelsey Grammer, and we discuss why he doesn’t watch Rick and Morty, and we even concoct a joking shot that would see the actor play the father of Summer in a different dimension, like Frasier.
Spencer shares information about her decade of experience with the show and makes it clear that she has no plans to leave Summer’s character behind, as well as tell us about a few of her other projects.
It was a lot of fun, and be sure to tune in next week when we chat with the voices of Beth and Jerry, Sarah Chalke and Chris Parnell!
Krapopolis is scheduled to premiere in 2022, while Rick and morty Season 5 launches new episodes Sundays at midnight.
