Adult Swim has yet to announce a premiere date for Rick and Morty: The Anime, but it's now been announced that a special early preview screening will be shown at the end of this month.

Fans attending the upcoming DoKomi 2024 convention in Düsseldorf, Germany will be treated to a preview of Episode 1. The preview will be held on Sunday, June 30th.

"In cooperation with WarnerTV and [Adult Swim] we have the incredible honor to host an exclusive preview screening of Adult Swim's "Rick and Morty: The Anime" episode 1 on Sunday on our Live Stage!" the DoKomi social media account announced. Fans can apply to attend here. The screening will be shown in German.

For those unfamiliar, DoKomi is Germany's biggest Anime and Japan expo. The three-day event typically hosts over 150,000 visitors and cosplayers, with thousands of exhibitors and all sorts of anime, manga, and Japan content. DoKomi will take place from June 28 through June 30 and is hosted in at the Messe Düsseldorf exhibition center.

As for Rick and Morty: The Anime, we still don't have a firm release date. It was confirmed that the anime series will be coming to Adult Swim and Max this year, with reports it could debut this summer. Seeing as how a preview of the first episode is ready to go at the end of this month, then perhaps a July or August premiere is on the table.

The new series, which stems from a six-minute short film titled Samurai & Shogun that aired unannounced on Adult Swim's Toonami programming block back in March 2020, will feature 10 episodes in its first season. A synopsis released by Warner Bros. Discovery reads:

In Rick and Morty: The Anime, a new series from the world of “Rick and Morty,” Rick relaxes in a pseudo-world between multiverses, Summer helps Space Beth fight the evil Galactic Federation, and Morty falls in love with a mysterious girl who happens to be an atemporal being.

Ricky and Morty: The Anime is directed by Takashi Sano and produced by Jason DeMarco of Adult Swim and Joseph Chou of Sola Entertainment. Animation production is being done by Telecom Animation Film with Sola Entertainment handling general production. The anime series stars Yōhei Tadano as Rick Sanchez and Keisuke Chiba as Morty Smith, reprising their roles from the Japanese dub of the original series.

It was recently confirmed by Jason DeMarco, Senior Vice President, Anime and Action Series/Longform at Warner Bros. Animation, Cartoon Network Studios, that the series will also be getting English dubs. However, we don't know when they will be released.
