It doesn't make any sense.
This latest hiatus could be the longest one yet, stretching to almost two years between new seasons. "I'm sure they all have their reasons", Ridley said. Rick and Morty has a cult following and Season 3 received critical acclaim. We gave Season 3 an 8.8 review, calling it the "most consistently entertaining and ambitious season yet".
"I'm just shocked that it's taking - we got done writing season 3 in November of past year and here we are 11 months later".
"I want to prove it with the first 10 [episodes] of season four - prove it to ourselves, to production, to the network - that it's so easy that we'll earn additional episodes", Harmon said.
Since season three, "Rick and Morty" became even more popular, even having its own cultural phenomenon, but the folks behind Adult Swim may have to worry about losing some of their fans if they don't get to work and still slack off.
Having waited 18 months between Season 2 and 3, there was for a time a growing concern if we would ever see the show again. This follows a Detroit Cast interview with Rick and Morty writer Ryan Ridley, who also worked with the cartoon's co-creator Dan Harmon on Community, which Harmon also created.
Ridley said that, based on how long it's taken the staff to get the scripts written and the episodes animated in the past, he would be surprised if the fourth season debuted before late 2019. "Get all your shit together and put it in a backpack". If taking their time is what's required to deliver a continually excellent product, then Roiland and Harmon should do just that. That's stupid!' vs. 'Yeah, I dunno, that seems right, that sounds cool.' Which is, by the way, every time travel movie, because time travel isn't real and no one knows if it's possible. You can't build an airplane on story logic and hope it flies, people aren't going to care. A lengthy delay is actually a sign that "Rick and Morty" isn't going to slide in quality any time soon.
