Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland have finally broken their silence on the long-awaited fourth season of their cult cartoon Rick & Morty . After a two-year break between season two and three, the fans of the series had to wait even longer for new episodes. As asked by a huge face in the sky, "Show me what you have", Harmon and Roiland just gave an interview to keep people informed about their progress in the new season.
"I think it's safe to say that the gap between Season 3 and 4 is the longest and last time it's so long that it's ridiculous," Harmon said. Entertainment Weekly "I do not know how fast we can make it, but I know it will never be that long again … I feel like a naughty boy when I'm late." Ongoing contract negotiations between the two showrunners and Adult Swim. Harmon and Roiland have now signed a deal with the network to produce 70 new episodes of the series, of which the first ten form the fourth season. "There are many stories we want to tell, a lot to do, but it's great," said Roiland. "Such job security is not easy in this city."
And Harmon is confident that this new agreement with Adult Swim will meet the timetable for the coming seasons. "However, to keep hopes up, our deal is structured so that when we're strong and fast, there are options to deliver more impact at the same time." Adult Swim can say, "These are on time and great. Do you want to do more than take a break? And then we can do more, I want to see this day, and if I know it's possible I'm looking forward to it. "
The show, which resembles a kind of comic version of Doctor Who If the Time Lord were a genius who also happens to be an alcoholic, he would have a passionate following. Harmon and Roiland know that, and in the new season they've come up with recalls, jokes and ongoing developments that will reward long-time viewers. "Without revealing anything, we have serial shots that we check from time to time and that are strewn about the strong episodic episodes," said Roiland. "Fans of the show will want to see them in turn."
Fans will finally see the fourth season of Rick & Morty when The Broadcasting Begins in November.
