Epic Rap Battles of History gets even more epic in their fourth season, with a move to weekly episodes when the series returns in November.

ERB finished its last run in July with a matchup between the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Renaissance artists from whom they get their names; the channel went quiet until this week when a new video announcing the Nov. 10 season premiere and format change appeared. Instead of biweekly episodes, rap battles will be coming at the channel’s 10.9 million subscribers every Monday.

“We moved to weekly release schedule because we wanted to give fans a more condensed barrage of battles,” EpicLLOYD, co-creator of the series, told the Daily Dot via email. “We figured it be really fun to throw as much chum in the water as we could, in the least amount of time, and then let the feeding frenzy begin.”

The announcement video is pretty epic in itself. It feature a ghost Adolf Hitler getting zapped with the ray of a proton pack, then cuts to the series creators dressed as Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage. Could there be a Mythbusters vs. Ghostbusters battle in the future?
