Rick and Morty fans finally got a tease of season 4, but some are peeved that it’s only “half the season you deserve.”
The trailer for season 4 debuted on Sunday, two years after season 3 came to an end. It teases more chaotic adventures for Rick and Morty, and the return of characters like the Meeseeks and Mr. Poopybutthole, though the chaser is that the season is only five episodes. Well, so far.
In May 2018, co-creator Justin Roiland teased 70 more episodes, though it wasn’t clear how they would be spaced out. In March 2018, co-creator Dan Harmon alluded on Twitter that the next season hadn’t yet been ordered by Adult Swim, but they confirmed in July 2019 that season 4 would be 10 episodes. So the trailer voiceover announcing “half the season you deserve, all the season we could handle” suggests the other half will come next year, but also that there were perhaps some snags in production. (BoJack Horseman is trying a similar two-part release for its final season.) IMDb does list 10 episodes for season 4.
Half the season? Wtf? Do you wanna start riots? Cause that’s how you start a riot... don’t get me wrong, I’m stoked for any new episodes, but like all addicts, we want more!— Daniel Beck (@DanielB05065733) October 7, 2019
But there were still plenty of fans who were excited to get something, anything.
The trailer for Rick And Morty season 4 is out and I am stoked to the max. Only five episodes this season, but I'll take whatever I can get. I can not wait, bring it on! https://t.co/8RtzSQn6mQ #RickAndMorty pic.twitter.com/JvxHTp6h3A— Reverend Nalley (@ReverendNalley) October 7, 2019
