RICK AND MORTY: The Upcoming Fourth Season Will Consist Of Ten Episodes; Season Five Is Already In The Works

The creators of, the popular and irreverent animated series, Rick and Morty recently confirmed that the upcoming fourth season will include ten episodes and they've already begun work on the fifth.

Following the ending of the third season of Rick and Morty, the irreverent animated comedy was renewed for another seventy episodes. Given that previous seasons have consisted of ten episodes, this may well mean that there will be at least seven more seasons of Rick and Morty.

Recently, the creators of the show, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon participated in an interview with Entertainment Weekly in which they revealed that the upcoming and highly anticipated fourth season will indeed consist of ten episodes. "This new season will be 10," Roiland explained. "We’re rolling right into the next batch. The plan has always been to get them out quicker."

The last season of Rick and Morty was brought to an end in October of 2017. It will have been more than two years since then by the time season four arrives in November. In the recent interview, Harmon stated that they won't be repeating such a long gap between seasons again and that, as they're finishing off season four, they have already begun writing the fifth season.

"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," Harmon explained before elaborating further:

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. 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.
