Rick and Morty season four may not air until late 2019, writer says
Fans of Rick and Morty will remember the months after waiting between the end of season two and the beginning of the third season. Maybe it’s time to knock down the hatch and prepare another dry spell.
Ryan Ridley, a writer of Rick and Morty, told Detroit Cast that no one is working on a script for the fourth season, as far as he knows. Ridley pointed out that the script for Rick and Morty’s third season was completed in November 2016, about eight months before the show returned to Adult Swim. Since then, however, he has not done it and insisted that other authors did not.
“They took the time,” Ridley said. “I never understood why everyone – all parties, Dan, Justin, and Adult Swim – did not make their nonsense, and made the show quickly; I do not understand it does not make sense to me, I’m sure they all have a reason.”
Ridley says that, based on how long it takes staff to create written scripts and animated episodes in the past, he will be surprised if the fourth season debuts before the end of 2019. If so, it will mark the most extended inactive period for the show, exceeding 18 months of people waiting for the third season. Ridley added that he believes the fourth season Rick and Morty will air – he’s not sure when. The representative of Adult Swim told Polygon that there were no comments at this time, but confirmed that the fourth season had not yet been booked.

“Get rid of you, you guys,” Ridley said. “Take it all out, and put it in the backpack.”
Polygon talked to co-creator Rick and Morty Dan Harmon at New York Comic Con in October, and he made sure the fourth season was going on. Harmon also told Entertainment Weekly in September that he was “going to do” Rick and Morty’s fourth season, but did not say when production would begin.
“I want to prove it with the first ten episodes of season four – proving it to ourselves, to production, to the network – so easy that we will get additional episodes,” Harmon said. “Because I never got this far [working in the NBC Community].I fell in the Community three season and was fired in season 4. Now I’m going to do Rick and Morty’s four seasons and want to prove that I’ve grown.”
