The latest series of Rick and Morty has finally got a release date and the new episodes will likely air on Netflix
Good news for the fans of 'Rick and Morty' as season 4 finally has a release date. The adult swim series will make a return on November 2019, and it was announced on Wednesday at the WarnerMedia upfront presentation in New York. The fourth season will premiere two years after the finale of Season 3 in October 2017 and it has been the longest gap between two seasons ever.
The season 1 finale aired on April 2014 and the Season 2 premiered in July 2015. There was a two-year gap between the end of Season 2 in October 2015 and the first episode of Season 3 on April Fools Day 2017. The third season resumed again in July, the same year.
Along with the announcement of the premiere date, it was also assumed that Adult Swim had given “Rick and Morty” a massive 70-episode order, which will bring the series to 101 episodes. This order comes as a part of a new long-term deal that the network has signed with series creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon.
The series has been extremely popular and successful for the network. The third season scored a 3.9 rating from adults 18-24 and a 3.2 from adults 18-34 in Nielsen’s Live+ Same Day numbers and it is the highest ratings for the network ever. The plot of the series revolves around a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his timid grandson in an insanely dangerous trip along the multiverse.
Both Rick and Morty is voiced by Roiland and the series also features the voice of Chris Parnell, Spencer Grammer, and Sarah Chalke. In the announcement video, Rick says, "We've got a big announcement to make." Before making that announcement, Rick asks Morty if he wishes to do the honors, but Morty asks him to go ahead with it. Rick adds, "Rick and Morty are back. Brand new Season 4 in November 2019, this year. We're going to do it this year, 2019."
Justin Roiland added, "We're excited for Rick and Morty more episodes, on Boomerang.com. Just kidding. We're very excited. We're working on them, they're going to be great."
