The dates have come! Rick and Morty are returning for the fourth season this fall including 70 brand new episodes over the next few years exactly as Adult Swim announced last year.
Created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland, Rick and Morty season four will begin airing in November. In a video aired during Warner Media’s 2019 upfront, Rick and Morty appeared to tell the audience about their upcoming episodes.
Both Harmon and Roiland have been open about making a show as sharp and satirical as Rick and Morty, and the troubling fandom tendencies that have grown out the show. Season four and beyond would be an undertaking, and they are prepared to take their time getting it right.
Roiland revealed to Polygon: “We’re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security. Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writers’ room. We want the episodes to stay good, but we do also want to try to turn them around a little quicker now that we have this big order, I think it gives us the ability to be faster. We’re not going to do these long breaks, these chasms in between seasons anymore. We’re going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It’s going to be really cool.”
