Rick and Morty fans will be happy to know that the show isn’t ending anytime soon. Those who expected the show to continue were right, and we will see it return to screen soon. Adult Swim confirmed back in May that Rick and Morty was going to return with more episodes soon. A total of 70 episodes were ordered, and that means we’re getting many more seasons of Rick and Morty; not just a fourth.
The last few seasons have had a total of 10 episodes. While there was the talk of the fourth season having a few more episodes, I don’t think that going to be the case for now. So going by that, Rick and Morty will possibly have seven more seasons, taking the total season count to 10.
Here’s the official Announcement from Adult Swim which confirmed Rick and Morty Season 4:
“Adult Swim has made a long-term overall deal with the creators that will include 70 new episodes of the critically acclaimed series that follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe.”
My Hero Academia Season 4 Release Date
We will now discuss the release date for Rick and Morty Season 4. Please be warned that this post may contain spoilers from the series, and if you don’t want to be spoiled, I suggest that you stop reading the post. If spoilers don’t bother you, we can get started.
Just as we reported earlier, Rick and Morty won’t be returning with the 4th season this year. Some fans expected the show to be out by December of this year, but that’s not going to happen. The director of the show certainly doesn’t think that Rick and Morty Season 4 will return anytime sooner than late 2019.
“I know how long this show takes to write, let alone animate,” he said. “I’d be surprised if there was a fourth season on the air anytime sooner than 2019… late 2019.”
This makes a lot of sense since the show takes quite some time to write. This is also why they won’t be doing more than ten episodes for Season 4, but that doesn’t mean we won’t get more episodes in the future. They have talked about having 14 episodes per season, so maybe we’ll see that happening in the future.
