Rick and Morty Season 4: Introduction
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, while ideating about the upcoming seasons of Rick and Morty, Dan Harmon said, “There’s going to be a couple of Meeseeks popping up here and there.” Meeseeks is an excited-to-please character that lives to accomplish a job given to it by its master before it disappears into a ball of smoke. The episode “Meeseeks and Destroy” in Season1 was the debut of this concept that recurred only in the subsequent season in the episode “Mortynight Run”. Fans speculate that the return of Meeseeks will only be a guest-like appearance that is separate from the central plot of the show.
Are there any official photos released?
The answer to this fan query lies in the affirmative. Official twitters handle of writers, creators, and the show have been hinting at a nearsighted Season 4 but these hints have turned into full-swing promotions. The two images revealed so far give us enough to have imaginations galloping. Both the images show Rick Sanchez standing all alone and if you were to recall the end of last season when Toda la familia got together to oppose Rick, even Morty standing up for his mother against him, it all begins to make perfect sense. Season 4 could show Rick being a lonesome adventurer to what the images called “the promised land” and unknown land of cyborg dinosaurs.
This seems like a mimicry of the iconic character of Doctor Who. This hints at a low period in a doctor’s life who time travels without his companions. The cyborgs also hint at a probable relation to Crocubots. The official twitter handle of Rick and Morty released a fifteen-second clip wth a hashtag that hints that it could be a teaser. The clip shows the comic couplet turning into superheroes. It also has a brief mention of a viewer-favorite Pickle Rick.
How many episodes can viewers expect?
In a 17th July interview, the co-creator confirmed that the brand new season of Rick and Morty will be nothing short of 10 episodes. Since Adult Swim ordered for 70 episodes, fans cannot help but relive the second season’s pre-production days where a creative conflict between the co-creators led to a shrink in the number of episodes that were initially to be released. Fans hope a similar snag does not lead to production delay that would impact the Season 4 premiere.
What’s the plot?
Season 3 was a cliffhanger for Rick and Morty fans on a cliffhanger, wondering about Clone Beth and Evil Morty. There is, therefore, a hope that the upcoming season helps weave the loose threads into an intriguing story. The last few episodes also provide hints for the next season with Beth and Jerry’s divorce decision falling apart, and her comment stating that the next season would be akin to the primary season but way more streamlined. The reunion of the family could hint at more screen presence of the Smiths. Co-creators have also stated that the episodes have been arranged in a systematic way that would compel fans to watch them in an orderly and chronological fashion.

What is the production status?
The July 17th interview also informed fans about how the creators were wrapping up the production of Season 4 and commencing with the pre-production work of Season 5. It can be thus inferred that the production of the new season is close to being finished. Creators have gone ahead to inform fans that the production of Season 4 was the longest delay in the history of Rick ad Morty’s production and that such a steep gap is never to be seen in the future. This makes it a piece of additional pleasant news for fans, who can now expect Season 5 sooner.
Can fans expect any guest appearances?
Rick and Morty are known to surprise its fans with popular celebrities lending their voices to characters on the show. Season 3 saw about twelve such guest appearances that include Danny Trejo and Joel McHale. This makes us wonder who Season 4 will bring on board. The creators of the show have confirmed that Sam Neill, Paul Giamatti, Kathleen Turner, and Taika Waititi are on the guestlist. Creators also expressed their desire to make Snuffles the dog return on the show, which would mean Rob Paulsen will be heard on the show.
Christopher Lloyd from Back to the Future could also be seen on the show but the real question lies in whether we will see a Kanye West episode turn into reality? Kanye has repeatedly professed his love for the show which led to a meeting between him and co-creators. The creators went on to say that Kanye could have his episode from the 70 that Season 4 has to offer.
What else is new?
Rick and Morty’s Season 4 could include an Inter-Dimensional Cable going by a tweet from Justin Roiland who voices both Rick and Morty in the show. Apart from this. Adult Swim, that is known to host annual festivals, might have a screening of Season 4 for its attendees. The festival is set to roll in November, around the same tentative date as the season’s premier which makes us wonder if the festival will host a premier or just an ordinary screening. We say ordinary, but we expect nothing ordinary from this concept. Lastly, Rick and Morty’s creators announced a Prizeo Charity this month for Autism awareness.
The catch here is that an entrant of the Prizeo content, at a measly $10 for an entry fee, can stand its fans a chance to get flown to the Rick and Morty headquarters and get featured in one of the episodes as a background character. This is great news for fans who dream to get involved with the show and its creators on a personal level. Apart from running the show that is Rick and Morty, its creators, Dan Harmon, and Justin Roiland are working on their Harmontown podcasts, and Squanch Games respectively. They also have a couple of other creative projects running on the side but working on Rick and Morty is a priority for the duo.
We all can unanimously agree that this has been the longest break we have witnessed as fans, between two consecutive seasons of the show. However, the longer the wait is, the more excited and impatient fans are getting to see what is in store for them The previous seasons of Rick and Morty stood out concerning its relevance by causing Mc Donald’s to revive the sale of their Schezwan Sauce in their fast-food chains. While this is what peak influence looks like, fans await what the next season has to offer and how.
