Channel 4 has announced the air date for the fourth series of Rick and Morty, as part of the broadcaster’s partnership with Adult Swim.
Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, the sci-fi cartoon follows scientist and intergalactic felon, Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland), who drags his grandson, Morty Smith (Roiland), on a series of insane adventures across the galaxy.
Fans of the show predict the new series will see Sanchez and Smith at odds with Smith’s tyrannical counterpart, Evil Morty (Roiland), alongside a deadly reunion between Sanchez and his lifetime friend turned enemy, Phoenixperson (Harmon).
The fourth series of Rick and Morty will air in the UK exclusively on Channel 4 in November 2019 and will be distributed in two parts, including five episodes each, with reruns airing on E4 and streamed on All4.
“Millions of fans have been waiting for more than two years for a new series of Rick and Morty,” said Ian Katz, director of programmes at Channel 4.
“The most brilliantly bonkers show on television. We’re thrilled that it will be aired exclusively on Channel 4 and I promise it will be worth the wait.”
The new series of Rick and Morty starts on Wednesday 20th November at 10pm on Channel 4.
