We’re in the demon-voice part of the process now, and we’re exploring various processes. The other day I brought five very, very different people into a room, with a microphone and asked them to say things. Maybe I want it to be each of these voices and more. Maybe I want the demon to be a lot of things.

The Boys

The latest issue of Production Weekly also suggests The Boys has been officially renewed for a fifth season at Amazon.

Rick and Morty

During a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, executive producer Steve Levy suggested Rick and Morty may be “even better” without the involvement of Justin Roiland.

We had a rug pulled from underneath us. The only people we could lean on were each other. It would have been very easy to just say, ‘I’m done and I don’t want to do anything with this show anymore.’ But our crew said, ‘No, we’re not going to let one person drag down all of our hard work.’ This show is created by this team — this family of incredibly hardworking people, and we are going to push through and show the world that we aren’t going to miss a beat.

The work that we’re doing across the board has only gotten better. When the new season comes out, we’ll focus on how amazing it all turned out. We hope the fans will realize that this is the same old show, maybe even better!
