Rick And Morty return for the long-awaited Season 4 but it’s a bit short!
Rick And Morty are one of the funniest adult animations at the moment in my humble opinion. I was very late to this party and only watched the existing three-season run earlier this year.
Rick, a cynical but genius scientist, is the grandpa to Morty who is good-hearted but fretful. Together they have utterly bonkers and sometimes very violent adventures across interdimensional space which they also have to balance with their home life as well.
I haven’t had the torture of waiting for new episodes, kudos to the original fans, since the end of season three in October of 2017!
Apparently the reason for the long delay between seasons was partly due to negotiations between the creators of the show, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, and Adult Swim. These negotiations ended in May of 2018 when it was announced that Adult Swim had asked for 70 new episodes.
The flip side to this story is that the first half of this ten-episode season, starting November 10th on Adult Swim, will only be five episodes. I presume the rest of the season will hopefully air in early 2020.
Now that the huge episode order is confirmed, the creators have already started writing season five and the huge gaps between seasons shouldn’t occur again.
Those of us in the UK can find the new episodes of Rick and Morty shortly after their US debut on Channel 4, no confirmed air date at present.
