When will Season 4 of Rick and Morty premiere?
Rick and Morty will premiere November 10 at 11:30 EST on Adult Swim, the return announcement coming by surprise via Twitter right after midnight on October 7, along with a trailer for the new season. The network announced the series' return last May via a short video presented by Rick and Morty themselves. What makes this comeback different, however, is the promise of many, many episodes to come.
Co-creator and voice of both eponymous characters Justin Roiland tweeted in May 2018 that Adult Swim had not only picked up Rick and Morty for a fourth season, but ordered 70 episodes of the series in total. Roiland told Polygon in 2018 that the large order gives the team a bit more security, in turn allowing them to turn around episodes -- and seasons -- at a quicker rate. That should mean that the series' infamously long gaps between short seasons should decrease.
"We're super excited that, for the first time ever, we're locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security," Roiland told Polygon. "[Dan] Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writer's room. We want the episodes to stay good, but we do also want to try to turn them around a little quicker now that we have this big order, I think it gives us the ability to be faster. We're not going to do these long breaks, these chasms in between seasons anymore. We're going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It's going to be really cool."
