Rick And Morty Season 4 Will Hit Australian Netflix On December 22
It gives us the utmost pleasure in confirming that season four will hit Australian Netflix on December 22.
The news was slyly revealed by the streaming service on the show's profile where a little message read the arrival date. That's unlike Netflix considering fans have been dying to know when they could feast their eyes and ears on the newest instalment.
Netflix has reportedly been waiting for all the episodes to be released on Adult Swim in the US before it was allowed to stream it elsewhere.
Fans weren't happy when Adult Swim revealed that the latest batch of episodes was only going to contain five episodes, which is entirely understandable.
We've all waited for more than two years for the incredible show to return and five episodes seems like we're getting a bit shortchanged. However, the second half of season 4 - containing another five episodes - is likely set to broadcast sometime in 2020.
The titles were released a few weeks ago and we'll get 'Edge of Tomorty: Rick Die Rickpeat', 'The Old Man and the Seat', 'One Crew Over The Crewcoo's Morty', 'Craw and Hoarder: Special Ricktim's Morty' and 'Rattlestar Ricklactica'.
Recently, the show's creator Dan Harmon bemoaned the fact that it has taken them so long to get things in shape for the new season.
He told Entertainment Weekly: "I think it's safe to say without fear of being wrong that the gap between seasons 3 and 4 will be the longest and last time that it's ever so long that it's ridiculous.
"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 4, and it's really safe to say - as Justin says - we're literally writing season 5 while finishing season 4 just to force ourselves to commit to a certain schedule."
Harmon added: "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."
Hey, if they wanna do that, people will watch it, that's for sure.
