Rick and Morty’s creators are gearing up for a historic run for the series.
After long negotiations that pushed back season 4, Adult Swim has renewed the show for 70 episodes. Now with the deal in place fans won’t have to wait 18 months between seasons.
Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland spoke to Polygon about the impact of the new deal. “We‘re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security,” Roiland said. ”Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writer’s room. We want the episodes to stay good, but we do also want to try to turn them around a little quicker now that we have this big order, I think it gives us the ability to be faster. We’re not going to do these long breaks, these chasms in between seasons anymore. We’re going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It’s going to be really cool.”
Fans still have to wait a couple of months for the fourth season. Rick and Morty’s fourth season may not debut until late 2019.
