Rick and Morty have been renewed for a 4th season! It is certain the show that was created by Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland about the crazy scientist and his grandson has been one of the most successful shows lately. We will be getting 70 more new episodes.
We had to wait a long while before we knew whether we would be getting a new season of our favorite show. We finally got the news at the end of the first half of 2018 when Justin Roiland announced the big news. Not only was the show still on, but they are making 70 new episodes! That would basically mean that there will be about 7 more new seasons since all the past ones had 10 episodes each.
Even though the last season, season 3, ended more than a year ago, in October of 2017, we still don’t know the official date for season 4. All we know is that we should expect it to be somewhere in 2019.
Another information that we know is certain is that the cast will remain the same. Justin Roiland, Spencer Grammer, Sarah Chalke, and Chris Parnell are all returning to voice all of the characters they are in charge of.
The last season he came out may be the darkest one yet with many grim things happening throughout. Rick escaped capture, Jerry and Beth got a divorce, Rick managed to kill the team of superheroes – the Vindictors, and that’s just to name a few.
We don’t have any information about how the story will unfold in the following seasons. Dan Harmon has revealed much hasn’t been written so far. With that in mind, it’s safe to say that the storylines that have been explored on previous seasons will continue. For example Evil Morty and the Citadel of Ricks, Birdperson’s resurrection and the Beth and Jerry storyline as well. Except for that, it is hard to tell what new plots they will bring in.
The main writers of the show will still be Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland. They have been with the show from the beginning and are the shows, original creators. Other writers that have had a part in the show so far were Dan Guterman, Tom Kauffman, and Ryan Ridley, but it is not known if they will be doing anything for season 4 or the rest of the upcoming seasons. One person who we know is not returning is Jessica Gao because she is writing her new show.
When it comes to directors we have none that have been confirmed as of now. But since the show has people that have been directing it season 2 they might come back and work on season 4 too. Some of them are Dominic Polcino, Bryan Newton, Juan Meza-Leon.
Even though there haven’t been any real videos that promote the new season, there have been some weird teasers that have been posted. These could be an indication of what’s to come or it might just be a way of them putting out something fun for the fans.
There is no official poster for the new season but the show is being promoted in other ways. Through McDonald’s promotes their Szechuan sauce that became popular because of the show, the Australian parody of the show and the guest appearance of Rick and Morty in the music video of the group Run The Jewels.
