I still think early Simpsons is better, but they’re totally different shows that are brilliant in their own right… so I’m not sure why I brought that comparison up at all, really?
Anyway, the one downside of Rick and Morty has to be the waiting in between every season, with it stretching far beyond most shows’ hiatuses.
Over a year ago now, show creator Justin Roiland told audiences that while season four was on the way, he wasn’t at all sure when it would be coming out. He didn’t even give us so much as a clue. Cold, Roiland. Cold.
But during the WarnerMedia Upfront presentation yesterday (15th May), a teaser was dropped for season four, where both Rick and Morty revealed that new episodes will be with us come November 2019…
Awfully forward for Rick and Morty. I don’t want to suspect foul play but I sort of do. I just don’t trust those guys.
They didn’t really tell us much though, did they? Just when we could expect the show and that they still do that stuttering thing. Nothing about any plot points or evil Morty. Not even Phoenix Man and Tammy. Odd.
Meanwhile, in bizarre news, Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have offered Kanye West his own episode of the show, to do with it whatever he pleases.
Speaking of Yeezy at the WarnerMedia event, Roiland revealed:
“We f*cking love Kanye, man. Ye is a fucking kindred spirit, genius, visionary. If that guy had the support to do all the ideas he has in his head, he’d be f*cking Elon Musk 2.0.“
Taking advantage of the 70 episode green light that they got for Rick and Morty, Harmon then chipped in, saying:
“I’m giving him an episode, I’m making it official. We have 70, he can have one. Kanye, you can have an episode.“
West has yet to respond to the offer, but he previously shared his delight for more episodes being commissioned, so he’ll probably say yes…
We’ll keep you updated.
