Although the second half of season four finally dropped on E4 on 7 May, with episodes available one at a time on Channel 4's on-demand service, Netflix users will be able to watch the season in its entirety.
Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, the Emmy-winning animated comedy series from Adult Swim first debuted in 2013.
Following a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe, over the years the programme has become a cult favourite among viewers - who in the past have been in for a bit of a waiting game when it comes new episodes.
The writers of Rick and Morty have recently been criticised after making a joke about the 9/11 terrorist attack.
The controversial gag was made during an episode titled 'Promortyus' which aired on Sunday (10 May) in the US and will air on Thursday (14 May) on E4 in the UK. During the episode, Rick and Morty fly around an alien city and opt out of attacking two identical towers ahead of them.
Narrowly missing the buildings, Rick says: "Honestly, I'm proud of us for not."

Morty replies: "Totally, would have been cheap."
The pair instead fly over a harbour and proceed to blow it up, with Rick directly addressing the World War Two atrocity, saying: "Pearl Harbour on the other hand..."
We then see Rick and Morty sat at breakfast with Morty's parents, Beth and Jerry.
When they're asked about what they had done, Beth says: "So, you did a 9/11?"
Morty replied: "Almost did a 9/11. We... we went with a Pearl Harbour. We're pretty classy."
Eeesh - risky.
Since the episode was aired, some viewers have criticised the writers for appearing to make light of the 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Centre in New York, which killed around 3,000 people.
More than 2,400 people also died during the surprise Japanese military attack on the US naval base at Pearl Harbour in December 1941.
Taking to social media, one person wrote: "Not Rick and Morty with the 9/11 jokes."
