Rick And Morty Season 4 Release Date Confirmed

We already knew that season 4 of Rick and Morty was on its way, but creators of the hit show have confirmed it will air in November this year.

In June last year, it was confirmed that production had begun, but no release date was revealed - until now of course.

Although there's not much to go off in terms of plot, creator Justin Roiland did reveal that it was signed up for a further 70 episodes - which means years of the show are yet to come.

Of course, co-creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland were on hand for the announcement, posting on Instagram with the caption: "Social Media Upfronts!!!!!!!!!! #LizardLizard #Music #Cheeseburger"

The new series will air on Channel 4 in the UK, and if that's not good enough news for fans of the cult cartoon, the first three seasons are already on E4 - the perfect chance to refresh yourself before the next lot air.

Roiland, who created the show alongside Dan Harmon, told Polygon: "We're super excited that, for the first time ever, we're locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security.

"Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writer's room. We want the episodes to stay good, but we do also want to try to turn them around a little quicker now that we have this big order, I think it gives us the ability to be faster.

"We're not going to do these long breaks, these chasms in between seasons anymore. We're going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It's going to be really cool."

This was nothing but good news for fans of the show, who were subjected to a painful two year wait between the second and third seasons. They were then expecting a similar amount of time before the fourth season dropped - and it's not far off. We're sure it will be worth the wait though.

The show is currently also still on Netflix for UK viewers, but the new ones won't be, with rumours flying around that it'll be taken off altogether when the new season drops.

The move comes as Channel 4 partners with creators Adult Swim to host it all on All 4, where it can be viewed for free anyway.

The countdown is on, guys - only half a year to go...
