The series Rick and Morty has been known to indulge itself in mind-bending time travel, clones vs. reality, and dreams within dreams stuff. Therefore, it is no secret that they did divulge themselves into the chaos of multiverse theory as well. After working on Rick and Morty as well as Marvel, here are some wisdom words from their writer for the Multiversal chaos.
Keep track before tapping into the Multiverse
Having written an episode of Rick and Morty, Michael Waldron was picked up by Marvel to create the first season of Loki (2021) and the man had the final draft for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (2022). In an interview with Digital Spy, the producers of the show Dan Harmon and Scott Marder spoke about the challenges in a story crossing the boundaries of the universe.
“It’s just super-challenging. Whenever we dip our toe in it, it can easily spin out to become mind-splitting. You’re just staring at a story that’s got a million Ricks in it. You’ve got to keep track of all of them so you’re not being sloppy. I don’t know. Good luck.”
Said Scott Marder while Dan Harmon had something else on his mind,
“To me, the thing that sucks the most about it is having to remind yourself that when we do do canonical stuff, it’s like: well, technically aren’t there infinite evil Mortys, then?”
The producer is seen here talking about the limitations that one has to impose for a certain character from a certain universe all the while all the boundaries of all the characters are opened once that crack in the multiverse starts to expand. There could be infinite Mortys, infinite Ricks, a universe where they do not exist, and, a universe where there is nothing except them!
Thus, the summary of the advice was to keep track of your characters and pay attention to where the story flows.

After 5 successful seasons of much love and appreciation, Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty Smith are in for an adventure (as always). Seeing Jerry in Morty’s clothes and a full episode dedicated to the Die Hard storyline, Season 6 will surely not disappoint fans (something that some episodes of Season 5 did).
Rick and Morty is bound for a release date on September 4th, 2022 on [adult swim] while seasons 1 to 5 are available to stream on Netflix.
