It’s been a very long wait, but with just one month to go, Adult Swim has finally dropped the trailer for Season 4 of Rick and Morty.
The long-awaited Season 4 of Rick and Morty also has a premiere date, November 10, but that date will serve as the premiere of only half of the season.
“Half the season you deserve,” the trailer’s narrator says. “All the season we could handle.”
We do know that the 2nd batch of episodes is set to air sometime in 2020.
The show’s co-creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have traditionally struggled to meet deadlines in the past, something they attribute to the hit show’s high standards.
“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,” said Harmon. “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.”
“We want every episode to be good,” Roiland added. “There are times we’re like, ‘Okay, this one will be the worst of the season,’ and we’re still compelled to do everything in our power to fix what we think is wrong with it. It could be considered one of the reasons the show takes so long. When we get the episodes back in color, it’s easy to see if that we cut this and add that, it will elevate this episode significantly. Sometimes we get them back and are like, ‘We need to roll our sleeves up and figure this out.’ This season’s been good. Pretty excited about this season.”
