Tonight we get to watch Season 4 Episode 9 of Rick and Morty on Adult Swim. But after tonight, how many more episodes will viewers have to enjoy before they have to endure a long wait again for Season 5? Read on for more details about Season 4 and the upcoming schedule for the show.
Sadly, there is only one episode left of Rick and Morty Season 4 after tonight. After Episode 9 breaths of air, only one more episode is airing in Season 4, which will be the finale. This gives us a total of 10 new episodes for the new season
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly in July, Justin Roiland said that Season 4 would be 10 episodes long. Then on November 10, he tweeted confirming that the full season was going to be 10 episodes long.
He wrote: “Finally. Season four premieres tonight! We have 10 episodes! First 5 start tonight! Sunday Nov 10th at 11:30 PM E/P Only on Adult Swim.”
Tonight is Episode 9, which leaves us with just one episode left.
After this season, we’ll likely have six more seasons of the show. Adult Swim signed a big deal for Rick and Morty. After Season 3, Adult Swim signed on for 70 more episodes of the show.That announcement was made in May 2018. Adult Swim confirmed with Heavy in a statement at the time: “Adult Swim has made a long-term overall deal with the creators that will include 70 new episodes of the critically acclaimed series…”
So even when the season ends, likely on the last day of May, we’ll still have 60 more episodes left to enjoy according to the deal Adult Swim signed for the show. The big question will be how long we’ll have to wait after the Season 4 finale before Season 5 premieres.
