8. More Celebrity Guests

More from Show Snob

Rick and Morty attracts a surprising number of celebrity fans and acting talent, so I’m sure the next few seasons will see another influx of incredible talent.

The first three seasons saw big names like David Cross, Nathan Fillion, Susan Sarandon, Peter Serafinowitcz, Danny Trejo, Christina Hendricks, John Oliver, Patton Oswalt, Jemaine Clement, Stephen Colbert, Gary Cole, Werner Herzog, Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele, Alfred Molina, Keith David, Christian Slater, Joel McHale, and Gillian Jacobs.

I’m waiting for appearances by other Dan Harmon favorites, particularly Donald Glover and Danny Pudi (Community’s Troy and Abed), and Arrested Development’s Mitch Hurwitz.

It would be exceptionally cool to see more science fiction icons make appearances, particularly actors from Star Wars or Star Trek. Levar Burton has previously made appearances as himself on Dan Harmon’s Community and is a valuable connection.

Mark Hamill is not only Luke Skywalker but the legendary voice actor behind the Joker from Batman the Animated Series, among other impressive credits. The possibilities are endless and I’m looking forward to being pleasantly surprised in upcoming seasons.

9. Rick and Morty: The Musical

It is a classic trope for long-running television series to have a musical episode. Seeing as how it is part of Rick and Morty schtick to acknowledge, utilize, and subvert classic film and television conventions, I honestly don’t see how they could get away without doing a musical episode.

We already know that Rick and Morty is capable of producing catchy music, thanks mostly to series composer Ryan Elder and partly thanks to Justin Roiland’s free-flowing, stream of consciousness improvisation style.

After all, if an entire episode can be written as an excuse to showcase a single song (“Get Schifty”), I think a few songs can be written for the premise of a single episode.

The beauty of Rick and Morty is that there barely needs to be an excuse at all for them to do anything they want.
