It’s been more than a hot minute since we last got some new Rick and Morty on our screens, but thankfully the wait is nearly, almost, sort-of over. Hooray!
With Rick and Morty‘s fourth season right on the horizon, here’s everything we know about the new episodes so far…
A handful of special guests have been announced for the fourth season of the show. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Roiland and Harmon confirmed Paul Giamatti, Kathleen Turner, Sam Neill, and Taika Waititi will all lend their voices to Season 4.
For anyone who needs a little background, Giamatti has starred in the likes of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, 12 Years a Slave, and Showtime’s Billions. Turner played Chandler’s transsexual dad in Friends and famously voiced Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
As for Neill, he played the legendary Dr. Alan Grant in the Jurassic Park movies and we’re hoping he’ll be part of the upcoming Jurassic World 3. Finally, Waititi was the director of Thor: Ragnarok and appeared as the fan-favourite Korg.
We don’t yet have a release date per se, but we do have a window locked down. Rick and Morty season 4 will grace our screens at some point in November 2019. Considering it usually airs on Sunday nights, there’s only a handful of days we can expect it to drop, so mark them in your calendars.
Earlier this year, Deadline reported that the lucky-duck attendees of the Adult Swim Festival will be able to watch a season 4 episode on Saturday, November 16, leading to speculation that November 17 will be the first episode drop for the rest of the world.
It’s been confirmed that Rick and Morty season 4 will feature 10 brand-spanking-new episodes, similar to the second and third seasons of the show.
Back in 2017, series co-creator Dan Harmon told EW: “I would like to think I’ve learned enough from my mistakes in season 3 that we could definitely do 14 [episodes] now, but then I have to say, ‘Yeah but you’re the guy who says we can do 14 who turned out to be wrong so we’re not listening to you now.’”
More seasons are planned for the future.
So far we (sadly) don’t have anything more than images and a couple of promo videos, but hey, it’s better than nothing.
First we got the promo video announcing the November release window, but no clips of what we could expect to be seeing.
A second clip shows off a full scene from the upcoming season, but it’s not a super-long one. Check it out below.
Some lucky folks got to see more footage during San Diego Comic Con earlier this summer, but it’s still under wraps for the rest of us.
The only other content we’ve seen is a couple of images, which show Rick looking pretty happy in a beautiful alien field, and some robot crocodile things.
Hopefully we’ll get more Rick and Morty goodness sooner rather than later!
