The pop culture sensation that has warped our minds and won our hearts will not gone as long as you previously thought. Unlike the gaps between season 1 and 2 and season 2 and 3, Rick and Morty is set to release new episodes a lot sooner. According to co-creator Justin Roiland, who sat down with Polygon, those gaps between seasons will be shortened drastically in the future as they’ve been locked in for multiple more seasons.
“We‘re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security. [Co-creator Dan] Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writer’s room. We want the episodes to stay good, but we do also want to try to turn them around a little quicker now that we have this big order, I think it gives us the ability to be faster. We’re not going to do these long breaks, these chasms in between seasons anymore. We’re going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It’s going to be really cool.”
Fans are currently awaiting the debut of Season four, with the previous season having ended last October and concluding with Smith family reuniting, much to Rick’s dismay. Roiland might not have confirmed when the upcoming season will debut, yet he did tease that the writers are currently working on it.
“It’s exciting, it’s a little surreal,” Roiland confessed. ”Even just being in the writers room for half the day every day this week, the ideas are … it’s going to be great.”
Earlier this year, the announcement came that Rick and Morty was renewed for a whopping 70 episodes. With each season previously consisting of 10 episodes, it would appear as though the show will run up through at the very least season ten.
