I’m pretty sure I’m not alone when I say that Rick and Morty is one of the best shows that is currently airing on Adult Swim. Between its pitch black sense of humor and its wild adventures, the show hit a sweet spot for a lot of people and it’s developed a pretty ravenous fanbase. Granted, this fanbase is pretty extreme and will be quick to kill a man over dipping sauce, but at least the show is good!
Well for those of you waiting with baited breath for season 4 to come out, I have some bad news for you. No, not the fact that it’s going to take until 2019 to be released. Actually, the next season isn’t even in production yet. No scripts have been written, no animation has been done, nothing. Rick and Morty has entered production limbo.
According to Dan Harmon, who opened up on Twitter recently about the next season, he flat out states that the show has not been ordered by Adult Swim for a fourth season, which is pretty strange given how the show averaged more viewers in its third season than the second. I’m sure this is only a temporary stopgap and Rick and Morty fans will get their fix eventually. Hell, just look at how long Venture Bros. fans have to wait between seasons for just a single new episode. It’s been over two years since a new episode Adult Swim! Give us Venture Bros. season 7 dammit!
