Dan Harmon has shared an update on the supposed Rick and Morty episode with Kanye West, revealing that only “time will tell” if the episode is ever created.
“I think that when Kanye signs on, as he did, to do an episode, it’s not just gonna be Kanye doing a guest voice or Kanye doing a song,” the co-creator said in an interview with MSNBC. “We agreed that it needed to be really interwoven with the Rick and Morty franchise having its own integrity and Kanye having his own, without spoiling any details of what that story would be. Suffice it to say that the end result was going to be a lot of original music. I think that at that point, that’s when seven different corporations, and I don’t fault them for this because this is their job, they have to say, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa, wait a minute. Slow down psychos.’ It’s like, ‘What are you doing?’”
Harmon added that they had discussed specific plotlines with West during their meeting with the writing staff, and opened up about what attracted the artist to the show: “The guilty fantasy that we are the smartest one in the room. That we know better, that we have bigger fish to fry and that we’re surrounded by people that don’t get it.”
West has publicly declared his love for Rick and Morty throughout the years. Ex-wife Kim Kardashian gave him a birthday card from the two characters in 2016 and West himself shared an artwork of him as a character on the show in 2018.
