Those Rick and Morty Season 4 negotiations were bigger than we thought. Not only have creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon confirmed Season 4 is go at Adult Swim, but the title duo’s adventures could well take us through Season 10.
The long wait for new Rick and Morty is especially fraught this year, as conservative estimates place Season 4 in late 2019 (at best). Now, creators confirm Adult Swim has not yet renewed the series, and contract negotiations with parent company Turner are to blame.
Anyone familiar with Dan Harmon’s Community tenure will likely remember behind-the-scenes conflict that culminated in his termination, and eventual return. Now, amid the many airings of grievance around Hollywood, fan-favorite writer Megan Ganz called Harmon out for his abrasive – even intimidating – behavior in the writers room.
The prospect of a Community movie gets further and further each year, especially as its principal cast moves to newer, high-profile projects. Creator Dan Harmon is still actively pursuing a Greendale reunion, however, and may even recruit Fast and Furious director Justin Lin to do it.
We’re not quite ready to say goodbye to Rick and Morty Season 3, especially after only ten episodes and multiple prior delays. However long Rick and Morty Season 4 might take, there’s at least good news – co-creator Dan Harmon is aiming for an expanded episode order.
Even as Rick and Morty Season 3 draws to a close, we’re still hung up on the insane “Pickle Rick” episode that dominated marketing. There’s good reason the episode proved so memorable too, as co-creator Dan Harmon cites a famous Breaking Bad episode as inspiration.
