Those of us anxiously awaiting new episodes of Rick and Morty will be disappointed that Adult Swim Still Hasn’t Ordered Rick and Morty Season 4. Dan Harmon tweeted about it today, after someone (@DJWisePariah) rudely tweeted that he should “quit wasting time and go finish the next R&M season, you lazy alcoholic.” He responded that the “show that hasn’t been ordered by a network.”
I hear ya, tough spot. On one hand, it can be challenging, especially with crippling lazy alcoholism, to write a show that hasn’t been ordered by a network. On the other hand, the thought that fans like you pay the price…I mean…I’m gonna grab a drink https://t.co/mvn9nthxCE

According to Newsweek, previously seasons have taken around 8 months to animate after all the writing is basically done, so that means Rick and Morty Season 4 is very unlikely to premiere in 2018. According to Ryan Ridley, who is a producer, writer, and voice actor for the show, “I’d be surprised if there was a fourth season on the air any sooner than 2019, late 2019,”
This means Rick and Morty fans have a long wait before new episodes will arrive. I guess we’ll just have to stay busy with a steady stream of Rick and Morty Merchandise, like the Portal Watch you can use to count the hours waiting for Season Four.
