'Rick and Morty' Creators Reveal Season 4 Details, Episode Count, Voice Cameos
"Rick and Morty" fans have been waiting forever (since October 2017) for new episodes of the Adult Swim animated hit.
They won't have to wait much longer — last year, creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland signed on to make 70 (!) more episodes. And Adult Swim announced Season 4 will debut in November.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the creators revealed more details about the highly-anticipated new season. First, Roiland confirmed it will run for 10 episodes.
And in news that should further delight fans, they'll get to work immediately on the next batch of episodes.
"I think it’s safe to say without fear of being wrong that the gap between seasons 3 and 4 will be the longest and last time that it’s ever so long that it’s ridiculous. I don’t know how fast we can do it, but I know it will never be this long again," Harmon said.
He added, "We’re literally writing season 5 while finishing season 4 just to force ourselves to commit to a certain schedule."
As usual, the show will bring in big names for guest starring voice roles.
"We’ve got Paul Giamatti. That’s a hot scoop," Roiland said. "We got Sam Neil. Taika Waititi does a voice. Kathleen Turner."
The creators did not tease much in the way of spoilers, but Roiland did suggest fans watch past episodes in order.
"We have serialized stuff we check in on now and then that’s sprinkled over the top of strong episodic episodes."
