According to Dan Harmon The Future of RICK AND MORTY is in Limbo
For those of you Rick and Morty fans who have been wondering what is going on with Season 4 and the future of the season, Dan Harmon has offered an update and it's not good. After a disgruntled fan complained to Harmon for not working on the new season of Rick and Morty, Harmon confirmed that Adult Swim hasn't officially picked up another season of the show yet. Here's what the fan tweeted to Harmon:
Quit wasting time and go finish the next R&M season, you lazy alcoholic. Run the Jewels can get the animators to make a music video, but we're waiting on them for the next season? Nah, we're waiting on you to finish writing it, like that fuckin book.— DJ Wise Pariah (@DJWisePariah) March 16, 2018
Then Harmon replied with the following:
I hear ya, tough spot. On one hand, it can be challenging, especially with crippling lazy alcoholism, to write a show that hasn’t been ordered by a network. On the other hand, the thought that fans like you pay the price...I mean...I’m gonna grab a drink https://t.co/mvn9nthxCE— Dan Harmon (@danharmon) March 17, 2018
It's strange and a shame that Adult Swim is dragging their feet on this. Rick and Morty is a wildly popular show! How have they not greet lit a Season 4 yet!? I don't have an answer for you. I'm just as confused as the rest of the fans.
The first three seasons have been so freakin' funny and entertaining. I hope someone eventually pulls their head out of their ass to push Season 4 forward, but even if that happens, since no work has been done on it, it's gonna be a long ass time before we see any new Rick and Morty episodes.
In the end, I'd rather wait for new episode than not have any new episodes at all. You can watch the "Run The Jewels" music video referenced above below:
