Rick and Morty has had an inconsistent journey when it comes to new seasons arriving on Adult Swim. It took a year and a half to get season three on air in 2017 after the second season finale in 2015, and it was over two years before the fourth season arrived on Adult Swim following the third season finale. Even when the new episodes for season four started airing last fall, Adult Swim split the fourth season into two five-episode chunks with the second batch of episodes picking back up earlier this month. But if series co-creator Justin Roiland had his way, he’d keep shaking up how the show is distributed to the masses. In fact, he’s even suggested the idea of releasing just one new Rick and Morty episode each month. Read More »

After the throwaway joke of “Six seasons and a movie!” became a rallying cry for the twice-cancelled comedy, fans have long wished for the feature film that would reunite the misfit study group and fulfill that mantra.

Not only are we finally getting the highly anticipated fourth season of Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon‘s Adult Swim series, but this is the first season that’s part of the massive deal that the duo struck with Adult Swim to produce 70 more episodes of Rick and Morty, giving them security and confidence to push through each season and move right on to the next without worrying if they are going to get renewed or not.
Leading up to their forthcoming Comic-Con panel this week, Roiland and Harmon sat down to tease the upcoming forth season. While they’re keeping details pretty close to the vest, they did mention a few guest stars who will be popping up, and they also teased the return of a fan favorite character, though they lamented that just by teasing it they may already be creating anticipating that ends up disappointing fans. Man, these guys are always worried about something. Read More »
