Consider us well and truly Squanched, Rick and Morty Season 4 could be closer than we first thought thanks to a trippy drop of some new footage.
The official Rick and Morty Twitter has posted a very short clip and some brand new footage. The 15-second clip shows our two favourite characters morphing into everything from balls to hippos, planets to fish, and even Godzilla and Mothra. You’ll also notice that it ends with the villainous ‘Evil Morty’ — who is fast becoming the show’s leading ‘bad guy’.
It seems like an age since we last had Rick and Morty grace our screens stuttering and burping their way across the multiverse. Adult Swim has already confirmed that a supersized crop of 70 new episodes is coming at some point, but we’ve been left salivating at the Plumbus for any news about when that’ll be. Those 70 episodes could come all at one time or probably in the form of 5-7 seasons.
After the surprise drop of Season 3 and the memorable Sezchuan sauce episode from last April Fool’s day, Rick and Morty fans have been hoping for a similar situation in 2019.
Although there’s still no official release date for Season 4, the latest video HAS to be a tease of something soon. Admittedly, we’re going to hold our hands up and say we were wrong about that Rick and Morty Christmas special, but we’ve got a good feeling about this one.
Instead of being overjoyed, some fans have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration at the lack of a Season 4 announcement. Considering we had to wait 18 months between Season 2 and 3, it’s easy to see why everyone’s a little peeved.

While the footage is probably just a bunch of random animations thrown together, we’ll hand it over to you to try and decipher what it means. Personally, I’d love to see a Godzilla-inspired episode where the dynamic duo are transformed into the ferocious lizard and Mothra. That’d be one way to top turning into a pickle.
No one knows what’s coming in Season 4, but expect to see more of Evil Morty, the usual appearance of Mr. Poopybutthole, and possible confirmation that Season 3’s Beth Smith is actually a clone of the original.
Whatever happens, expect more foul-mouthed mayhem from everyone’s favourite scientific grandpa and his unwilling assistant.
