    Jesus Christ. That does get them to the syndication threshold though

    Wtf. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that. Especially since each season is what like, 10-12 episodes?

    Watch it be like the "22 short films about springfield" and just be 70 "rick and morty adventures" in a single episode. :-)

    There was that shitty Anger Management Charlie Sheen show that had a 10 episode first season, then a 90 episode second season

    That’s a whole like style of TV. I forget the producers but the approach to Anger Management was unfortunately not an isolated incident

    70 more?! That's wild haha. I wonder if they'll have a more consistent production and release schedule going forward.

    Wow, very cool and exciting. I wonder if they'll bump the episode count per season or if this means we have 7 more seasons to look forward to

    I can’t believe they wanted to commit to that many considering how much the show seems to take out of them. Either way I’m beyond excited for this. I guess it’ll be seven more seasons of 10 episodes each?

    Dan and Justin should have requested one less episode

    That’s cool but let’s be real, there’s no way this show is still gonna be great by the time season 10 rolls around

    Archer is wayyy less dependent on plot and universe-building than Rick & Morty. The same jokes became a crutch many seasons ago

    ...or I could tell it to the hundreds of shows that ran for ten seasons and jumped the shark long before then. I just don’t think this show can sustain this level of creativity and character arcs for 70 more episodes without getting stale

    Every show has had some bad episodes, you just get more bad sprinkled in the longer the show goes. I easily would argue that Sunny is still a great show in the past 3-4 seasons, no question.

    I'm also not worried about R+M quality, I've been given no reason to worry yet so why worry about the unknown?

    Smart move on their part in all honesty. They wanted something set in stone. They know they're Adult Swim's most valuable asset right now and they want to capitalize on that. Instead of fighting with the network and parent company after each season and having to renegotiate their contracts they get to take their time and produce a steady stream of content that will satisfy them creatively and financially.

    Wasn't huge on most of season three upon revisiting but I'm not ready to write the show off because it

    Yeah idk S3 was kinda clunky, and 70 ep is ridiculous
