Rick and Morty is a hugely popular animated series that has captured the imagination of people all over the world. It follows the adventures of a nutty professor named Rick and his sidekick and grandson Morty.
The Path to Season 4
Rick and Morty first released on Adult Swim back in December of 2013. It was a little slow to take off then. It had a cult following, especially Dan Harmon fans. Dan Harmon has previously created another cult favorite sitcom named “Community.” There was almost a two year gap between season 2 and season 3. While this was agonizing for the fans of the show, the series absolutely exploded during this time. It’s popularity soared like never before. All this turned the creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon into household names.
Season 3 was released in October of 2017, and it was epic. It left the viewers with a ton of questions and debates. Once again though, they were made to wait quite a long time. It has now been almost two years again since season 3 came out. Fans soon started getting anxious and worried that the show may be cancelled. But in May 2018 brought some great news for the fans; Adult Swim announced it was renewing the series for an astonishing 70 episodes more!
When and What to Expect from Season 4
An announcement in May 2019 confirmed that the series would return in November this year. It was announced in a typically quirky manner we have come to expect from Rick and Morty. This means fans just have to wait for a couple of months more. Enough time to re watch he series or start for the first time if you haven’t watched it already. Here is the announcement video:
