The first clip for the fourth season of Rick and Morty has been released, having debuted during the show's San Diego Comic-Con panel on Friday.
The short clip, which is about an 'ominous beeping app', is the first footage we've been treated to - although we haven't done badly for teasers on season four recently.
Just three days ago some first-look images for the forthcoming season dropped - in one, Rick is on an alien planet looking far more zen and blissed-out than we're using to seeing him, while in another he's being confronted by some menacing, giant robotic crocodiles.
Then, in an interview with Entertainment Weekly ahead of Rick and Morty's Season 4 Comic-Con panel this weekend, creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland dished more about how many episodes we'll be getting in season four, along with info on plans for season five.
"This new season will be 10," Roiland said of the number of episodes.
"We're rolling right into the next batch. The plan has always been to get them out quicker."
Harmon, meanwhile, went on to explain their intention to keep the wait between seasons to a minimum, having said it's not just fans they receive pressure from, but also the big dogs ordering the episodes.
That also means they're already writing season five, as they're trying to get ahead of themselves, which is excellent news for us - even if the duo are probably gagging for a break.
"I think it's safe to say without fear of being wrong that the gap between seasons three and four will be the longest and last time that it's ever so long that it's ridiculous," Harmon said.
"I don't know how fast we can do it, but I know it will never be this long again. There were so many things that had to be settled before we even started season four, and it's really safe to say - as Justin says - we're literally writing season five while finishing season four, just to force ourselves to commit to a certain schedule.
"Not to get anyone's hopes up, but it is structured into our deal that if we're going strong and fast there are options to deliver more episodes at a time. Adult Swim can say, 'These are on time and great. Do you want to do more instead of taking a break?' And we can then do more. I'd like to see that day.
"Just knowing it's possible makes me eager for it. I feel like a naughty boy when I'm late."
Rick and Morty season four will be released some time in November.
