We now know when the popular Adult Swim cartoon Rick and Morty will be returning for Season 4.
During the WarnerMedia Upfront event, the upcoming fourth season return window was revealed as November 2019, which was swiftly confirmed by the official Rick and Morty Twitter account.
Additionally, the Adult Swim Twitter account posted an announcement video featuring the titular characters sharing the news with fans.
Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon are confirmed to be working on the series, as they had in the prior seasons, and as we learned in June 2018, the wait between episodes will be far shorter than previous seasons.
"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," Roiland said. "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."
While the series has been popular since its inception, the fandom reached maddening levels following Season 3 in 2017, with several controversies overshadowing the actual content of the show. However, since then, the controversy has settled down, allowing fans to focus on the content of the animation rather than the fever pitch surrounding it.
Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, Rick and Morty stars Justin Roiland, Sarah Chalke, Chris Parnell and Spencer Grammer. Season 4 will debut on Adult Swim November 2019.
