Why Evil Morty Is Barely In Rick & Morty: "We Would Risk Saying Too Much"

A Rick and Morty producer explains why the show uses Evil Morty so sparingly. The multiverse character dubbed Evil Morty by Rick and Morty fans first appeared in season 1, when in a twist ending he was revealed to be controlling an evil version of Rick. Two seasons would pass before the show got around to revisiting this villainous version of Morty, who by now had become President Morty, the leader of the trans-dimensional Citadel of Ricks. Rick and Morty would then put Evil Morty largely on ice for two more seasons, before giving him a huge moment in the season 5 finale, when he seemed to achieve ultimate victory over Rick by destroying the Citadel and leaving the Central Finite Curve forever.
