The fans all around the world are patiently waiting for the new season of their favorite show Rick and Morty. And the new season 4 will be released this year, but there will be some changes, and these changes will affect the fans in the UK.
The show from Adult Swim, ‘Rick and Morty’ was available on Netflix, and the fans from all around the UK could watch it there. But that will not be an option anymore, the new episodes of the show will be exclusively released on Channel 4.
That’s because the creators of Rick and Morty, Adult Swim, have made a new deal between the UK broadcaster, Channel 4. And before the new season hits the screens all of the other episodes from the previous three season will also be broadcasted on E4.
Does this mean that you will definitely not be able to watch Rick and Morty on Netflix?
Yes, the new season of the hit show Rick and Morty will now be exclusively available only on Channel 4 in the UK.
And when can we watch the new Season 4?
The last, third season of Rick and Morty was broadcasted in the UK via Netflix in 2017. The fans have been waiting for a long period of time now, but the wait will be over soon.
Back in 2018, writer and producer of the show, Ryan Ridley, said in an interview that it takes a long time to write and animate the show, so there isn’t a possibility for the show to be aired sooner than 2019, late 2019. But we are half way through 2019, and it was announced that the new Season 4 will be broadcasted on Adult Swim in November 2019. And that means that it will available in the UK shortly after.
Where can you watch the previous season of Rick and Morty?
The previous seasons, the first three seasons are still available to watch on Netflix UK. And they also started to air on E4 on February 15th, this year.
What about the cast, who will still be there?
Of course, there would be a show without Rick and Morty, and it is expected for the show’s co-creator Justin Roiland to return to voice those two characters. Chirs Parnell will voice Morty’s father Jerry, Spencer Grammer will voice Morty’s sister Summer, and Sarah Chalke will be Rick’s daughter Beth.
There will also be some guest stars, but there still aren’t any announcements about that.
And what about new season after this one?
There will certainly be new season after season 4, because the show was renewed for around 70 new episodes by US network Adult Swim, back in 2018. So we will be all able to join Rick and Morty’s adventures and follow them for a long time. We just don’t know how long we will have to wait for the new season after season 4.
