What can fans expect from Rick And Morty season 4 and when will it arrive? Rick And Morty quickly became a cult smash when season 1 premiered on Adult Swim back in 2013. The setup follows an alcoholic scientist named Rick Sanchez as he drags his naïve grandson Morty into frequently horrifying adventures that span space and time. The show also features a more traditional sitcom setup, with Rick sharing a house with his daughter Beth, her husband Jerry and granddaughter Summer.

Rick And Morty has become a beloved show to fans, spawning numerous catchphrases and memes. The show works as both a sci-fi adventure and a dark comedy, with Rick himself being a nihilistic genius who thinks about himself first and the safety of others a distant second. There was a long gap between seasons 2 and 3 and fans have already been warned that Rick And Morty season 4 could also take a little while to assemble.

So what should fans expect from Rick And Morty season 4 when it arrives?

Rick And Morty Has Been Renewed For 70 Episodes

The cult of the series only seems to spread wider, so it’s little wonder Adult Swim not only greenlit Rick And Morty season 4 but renewed the show for a further 70 episodes. This would bring the total episode count north of 100, though the exact number of seasons hasn’t been broken down yet. Original reports suggested season 4 could run longer than the traditional 10-episode arc, with co-creator Dan Harmon suggesting a smoother production process on the new season could mean more episodes. However, season 4 actually ended up being shorter, running a mere five episodes.

Rick and Morty Season 4 Release Date

Rick And Morty season 4 premieres November 10, 2019 on Adult Swim. Fans had to wait two years for season 3 to arrive due to production delays, with Dan Harmon admitting this was caused by his perfectionism. Both he and co-creator Justin Roiland (who also voices both Rick and Morty) vowed the wait for Rick And Morty season 4 wouldn’t be so long, though it ended up being even longer, as season 3’s finale aired in October 2017. The show did warn fans about this possibility, with season 3’s post-credit scene featuring Mr. Poopybutthole telling viewers there would be a long wait until season 4.

Rick and Morty Season 4 Trailer

In early-October, Adult Swim finally released a full trailer for Rick and Morty season 4, which revealed the aforementioned November premiere date. After such a long wait between seasons, fans were ecstatic to finally get some footage of the new episodes, although the subsequent announcement that season 4 w0uld consist of only five episodes wasn’t exactly greeted warmly.

Rick And Morty Season 4 Story

Like with previous seasons, story details for Rick And Morty season 4 are being kept under wraps for now. While fans would love to see the return of Pickle Rick, Interdimensional Cable or Mr. Poopybutthole, the writers of Rick And Morty frequently take the show in downright unpredictable directions. A strange teaser for Rick And Morty season 4 featured Evil Morty – Morty’s eyepatch-wearing doppelganger- suggesting the next season will explore that character a little further.
