Rick and Morty Season 4 To Air Exclusively On Channel 4 In The UK

Season 4 of Rick and Morty is coming. We know that it’s soon, we just don’t know exactly when. However thanks to some breaking news, we know that in the UK it’ll be available on Channel 4.

Check out the brand-new trailer…

Regarding the news, Channel 4 director of programmes, Ian Katz said: “Rick and Morty is one of the most anarchic, ingenious and original shows around and the breakthrough animated hit of recent years,

“I’m thrilled that it’s coming to Channel 4 and E4.”

If you’re an Adult Swim fan in general, you’ll be thrilled to know that as part of the deal Robot ChickenThe Eric Andre ShowAqua Teen Hunger ForceTim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! and more are all arriving on the broadcaster as part of the deal too.

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.

 

 

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.
