Adult Swim finally drops the trailer for Season 4 of Rick and Morty and confirms the season’s premiere date.
After a very long wait (the show hasn’t aired new episodes since October 2017!) the fourth season of Rick and Morty will premier on November 10. But the November premiere will only serve as the premiere of the season’s first half as the trailer’s narrator confirms.
“Half the season you deserve,” the narrator says. “All the season we could handle.”
Speaking of missing deadlines, the show’s co-creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have said in the past that it has to do with the show’s very high quality.
“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 that if 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.”
