RICK AND MORTY Fans Will Be Happy to Hear That There Won't Be Any Long Waiting Periods Between Seasons
One of the most annoying things about Adult Swim's Rick and Morty series was that we would have to wait so freakin' long in between seasons for new episodes! I hated that.
You'll be happy to learn that that will no longer be the case. With a 70 episode renewal, creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland will be able to dedicate all of their time to the series and smoothly pump out episodes one season after another for the next few years.
While talking to Ploygon, Roiland explained:
"We‘re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security. 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."
So, that's great news! These next 70 episodes are just going to flow by and end before we know it, but at least it will happen on a more consistent basis. He went on to confirm that the team has already started the development process of the series future:
"It’s exciting, it’s a little surreal. Even just being in the writers room for half the day every day this week, the ideas are ... it’s going to be great."
I can't wait to experience the insane new adventures that are in store for Rick and Morty! I imagine this show is just going to get wilder and crazier.
