If you’re a fan on Rick and Morty, be excited because the show is coming back this year! Season 4 will premiere just over two years after the finale of Season 3 in October 2017, the longest gap between seasons of the show.
Over a year passed between the Season 1 finale in April 2014 and the Season 2 premiere in July 2015. While there was nearly a two year break between the end of Season 2 in October 2015 and the first episode of Season 3 on April Fools Day 2017. Season 3 then resumed in July of that year.
After the third season ended, Adult Swim woke up, realized it had a hit on its hand, and ordered a whopping 70 more episodes. So when the show does come back, the waits between seasons should be fewer between.
The series follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the multiverse.
On top of that, in a recent interview the show’s creators (Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland) offered none other than Kanye West his own curated episode. Adding a few hilarious statements about their love for the Chicago artist.
“We f**king love Kanye, man. He’s a kindred spirit.” Roiland states. Dan Harmon immediately takes it to the next level by adding. “I’m giving him an episode, I’m making it official. We have 70, he can have one. Kanye, you can have an episode.”
