I have one episode left (it was either that or watch the very uneventful Match of the Day 2) and I’m not really looking forward to being at a loose end once I finish.
Well here’s some great news for you, Rick and Morty season 4 is just over the horizon and we can finally have a good look at what’s coming with this very extensive and exciting trailer…
I mean it looks pretty great, right?
Rick and Morty season 4 will be released on a weekly basis – like the good old fashioned times – starting from the 10th of November with the first episode.
Unfortunately not in the UK. After a deal with Adult Swim, all of their comedy will be exclusively aired on Channel 4 on this side of the pond, including Rick and Morty.
Annoyingly this season, though it was supposed to have ten episodes, is only rolling out five at the moment. With that, the show’s creator Dan Harmon told Entertainment Weekly:
“I think it’s safe to say without fear of being wrong that the gap between seasons 3 and 4 will be the longest and last time that it’s ever so long that it’s ridiculous.
“I don’t know how fast we can do it, but I know it will never be this long again. There were so many things that had to be settled before we even started season 4, and it’s really safe to say – as Justin says – we’re literally writing season 5 while finishing season 4 just to force ourselves to commit to a certain schedule.”
Roiland then chipped in:
“This new season will be 10 [well…].
“We’re rolling right into the next batch. The plan has always been to get them out quicker.“
“Not to get anyone’s hopes up, but it is structured into our deal that if we’re going strong and fast there are options to deliver more episodes at a time.
“Adult Swim can say, ‘These are on time and great. Do you want to do more instead of taking a break?’ And we can then do more. I’d like to see that day. Just knowing it’s possible makes me eager for it. I feel like a naughty boy when I’m late.”
We’ll just have to wait then.
