It’s consistently been one of the funniest new animated shows of recent years but, let’s be real, the delays between each season of Rick and Morty can be really, really painful.
At the end of the last season in fact, the network Adult Swim warned that fans shouldn’t expect to see any more episodes for a LLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGGG time.

But we recently heard the news that season 4 of Rick and Morty has been renewed for another 70 episodes and now the show’s co-creator Justin Roiland has given assurances that there won’t be any more long breaks between seasons.
“For the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security. [Dan] Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writer’s room,” he told Polygon.
“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.”
Roiland didn’t offer any specifics about when Rick and Morty’s fourth season will be finished and ready to watch, but did confirm the team has started back up again in the writers’ room this week.
All this is excellent news for us Rick and Morty fans so don’t mind us while we go and have a cheeky squanch. We’re just too darn excited.
