Adult Swim has revealed in a special video announcement that toon phenomenon Rick and Morty will return with all-new episodes in November! At long last, fans will get to take in more intergalactic madness and domestic turmoil with a sci-fi twist with the fourth season — the first installment on Adult Swim’s 70 episode mega-order.
Created by Dan Harmon (Community) and Justin Roiland (Adventure Time), the Primetime Emmy-winning grownups’ cartoon follows antisocial scientist Rick Sanchez and his hapless grandson Morty on their chaotic adventures through the multiverse. Roiland voices the titular characters, with Sarah Chalke as Rick’s daughter/Morty’s mother, Beth; Chris Parnell as insecure pater familias, Jerry; and Spencer Grammer as stereotypical teenage daughter Summer.
Rick and Morty premiered in 2013, developing a passionate fanbase and picking up numerous critical and audience pick honors, including a Critics’ Choice TV Award and two Annie Awards, on top of the Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program in 2018. Season 3 wrapped up in October of 2017, having introduced Pickle Rick, brought McDonald’s Szechuan Sauce back from the dead, and ended in a battle of egos between Rick and the White House.
A complete three-season home entertainment set was released in February.
