The hit animated show Rick and Morty season 4 was released in November 2019, with new episodes, started arriving weekly.
However, fans of the animated show will have been crushed to discover that there have been no more new episodes for the viewers to enjoy since 2022 started. Fortunately, it does not seem like they should have to wait too long for episode six of season 4.
Why Is There Only 5 Episodes In Season 4 Of Rick And Morty
Rick and Morty’s season 4 came with the tagline “half the season you deserve, all the season you can manage,” pointing to the fact that it would be divided into two parts consisting of five episodes each.
The very tactic has been used by Netflix for the final season of another acclaimed animated series with a talent for dark humor – Bojack Horseman. The first half of its final season was released on 25 October 2019, with the final episodes of the last season set to arrive on 31 January.
The first half of Rick and Morty season 4 episodes were distributed in the UK on E4 on Wednesday, 20 November 2019, with one episode coming each week after that. This set the UK a couple of weeks late after the show’s American air dates, with the fourth season arriving the states on 10 November.
Channel 4’s original plan was to make UK fans wait for all the way until January 2022 for their first impression of season four, but the response to this news was so outraged that the release date was made forward, moving the show to E4 in the process.
Now that the first five episodes of season 4 have been and gone, we begin another down period – something viewers have become all too usual too, given the two-year gap between the latest season and the one season before.
Release Date Of Episode 6
There is no exact date of release for the second lot of episodes, but the show also confirms that “Rick and Morty will return in 2022.”
However, many viewers now think that a release date of the second lots of episodes will be announced as part of the series’ Super Bowl advertisement.
A latest Rick and Morty-themed Pringle’s ad teaser surfaced on YouTube, promising that viewers would be able to “see the whole thing” during the big game. While it did no direct evidence to the cartoon’s return date, it seems likely that they might use this huge stage to make the announcement.
