It's been a long wait, but after more than a year of anticipation, we finally know when Rick and Morty Season 4 will premiere. The new season's release date is set for Sunday, November 10 on Adult Swim, and the first trailer has been released.
The date and trailer were revealed together in a tweet from the official Adult Swim account. The promo delivers a hilarious, non-stop barrage of insane situations for the intrepid dimension-hopping pair, including robots, aliens, mutations, and experiments gone terribly wrong. As the voiceover tells us: "Things are are pretty much the same–all f***ed up!" Check the trailer out below.
The first five episodes of Season 4 will arrive this year, while the second half is set to premiere in 2020. But while there will be a bit of a gap before we can see the rest of Season 4, co-creator Dan Harmon has promised that fans will never have to wait as long as they have since Season 3, which ran back in 2017.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Harmon said: "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.
"There were so many things that had to be settled before we even started Season 4, and it's really safe to say we're literally writing Season 5 while finishing Season 4 just to force ourselves to commit to a certain schedule."
Fans can also check out one of the new episodes ahead of its TV screening at the Adult Swim Festival. It takes place in Los Angeles and runs from Friday, November 15 to Saturday, November 16, and is described by Adult Swim as a "one-of-a-kind, 360-degree fan experience."
