Rick And Morty Gets More Than Just Season 4: 70 New Episodes Confirmed
Rick and Morty, forever and forever, a hundred years Rick and Morty.
Breaking news: Rick and Morty is never going away, at least not for a very long time. Adult Swim has renewed the animated series from creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland for an additional 70 episodes. For those keeping track, that means new episodes of Rick and Morty should be arriving for years to come.
Roiland chimed in about the news on Twitter, writing, "More Rick and Morty coming. Looking forward to all the tweets asking where it is!" Naturally, Adult Swim's announcement doesn't include a timeframe for when the series might return, but Roiland tweets that it's being drawn.
The renewal comes on the heels of what was a massive year for Rick and Morty, as the series transcended cable TV and became something of a pop culture anomaly when it made a simple joke about a discontinued McDonald's sauce. When the fast food chain fumbled a temporary return of its Szechuan sauce, thousands of the show's fans were left angry and Rick and Morty seemingly benefitted from all of the free press.
Now, though the show likely won't premiere its fourth season for some time, Adult Swim has a plan for Rick and Morty fans to get their fix over the summer. Once again, the Rickmobile--a mobile pop-up shop--will travel the country starting May 17.
Given that the series has been renewed for 70 episodes, that means fans likely have at least seven more seasons of Rick and Morty to look forward to. A typical season runs 10 episodes. If you factor in the year or more between each of the first three seasons, that could keep Rick and Morty alive on Adult Swim for over a decade to come.
