My fellow squanchers, our long national nightmare is over. We finally have an air date for Rick and Morty season 4. The premiere date will be November 1st, 2019. This news comes ahead of their highly anticipated SDCC 2019 panel on Friday, July 19.
In a recent interview with EW, co-creator and voice actor Justin Roiland confirmed the next 10 episodes will debut in the fall. Dan Harmon assured fans that “I think it’s safe to say without fear of being wrong that the gap between seasons 3 and 4 will be the longest and last time that it’s ever so long that it’s ridiculous. I don’t know how fast we can do it, but I know it will never be this long again. There were so many things that had to be settled before we even started season 4, and it’s really safe to say — as Justin says — we’re literally writing season 5 while finishing season 4 just to force ourselves to commit to a certain schedule. “
When asked about how long the show can last Roiland said: “We have characters that don’t really age, it’s very Simpsons-esque.” As long as the pair have something to say, and are not bored, they will keep entertaining us.
The next season will feature a who’s who of guest stars. Confirmed are Paul Giamatti, Sam Neil, Kathleen Turner, and Thor 4 director Taika Waititi. Although rumored, Kanye West will not take over any episodes for season 4, but it is in talks.
Lastly, when asked what their favorite display of love from fans has been Roiland said the people at SDCC. Also referenced is the now infamous Szechuan sauce debacle. Harmon replied his favorite is this tweet from the late Anthony Bourdain:
Stay tuned all weekend as we release more news as it happens. Here are first look images of the upcoming season.
