Rick and Morty themselves announced the return of the show in a new message, which doesn't offer any other clues or insights into the season beyond when it will debut. Season four will premiere just over two years after the finale of season three in October 2017, the longest gap yet between seasons of the show. You need to get used to being embarrassed of bad fans of the good show, the folks who harass fast food workers over sauce. It's coming back in November. Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, it catalogues the freakish misadventures of a bored scientific genius/drunkard and his socially awkward grandson, Morty. Between then and this upcoming November, over two years will pass before any new episodes of the series will air. "Because when you are healthy and happy, I think you do end up getting home by sundown".
In Season 3, Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland) is still living with his daughter Beth's (Sarah Chalke) family and causing more trouble than ever. The new season will add somewhere around 10 new episodes to the 31 already in existence when it arrives this November.
Rick and Morty follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely risky adventures across the universe. We suppose these things are not mutually exclusive, but at least now we know how long of a wait we have before we find out.
