The dispute between the creative forces behind Rick and Morty and Adult Swim has come to an end.
Rick and Morty has become one of the most popular television shows in recent years. The show focuses on Rick and his grandson, Morty, who go on interdimensional adventures together. The show’s sense of humor has been a hit with fans of all ages, and many fans appreciated its bizarre yet interesting humor. Today, Rick and Morty is getting 70 new episodes, or at least 7 new seasons.
However, after Season 3 aired in 2017, the show’s future was in limbo. Unsurprisingly, fans demanded answers from the show’s creators, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. The show’s creators told fans that there were ongoing talks between them and Adult Swim.
Rick and Morty co-creator Roiland posted this image on his personal Twitter account. This means that the show is now back in development, although there has been no information on when Season 4 will air.
Rumors about the show circulated rapidly on the Internet. One of the show’s writers, Ryan Ridley, said that the show wasn’t even being worked on at all earlier this year. In contrast, Harmon and Roiland said that they were in talks with Adult Swim to renew the show. Given the tough negotiations in entertainment today, the latter reason may have been why the Rick and Morty rumor mill was churning at full speed since Season 3’s wrap-up in October 2017.
The show’s co-creators have surprised fans before, and might do it again.
Given the unpredictable nature of the creative forces behind the show, it is still possible that we could see new episodes in 2018 itself. However, given that the contract between the two parties was just renewed, fans may have to wait until 2019.
