The most recent season of the acclaimed animated show Rick & Morty premiered way back in October 2017, and it’s been a long wait for fans to get news of when the series will return. Last month it was finally confirmed that Rick & Morty Season 4 will premiere in November, and now it has been announced that one of the new episodes will debut at the second Adult Swim Festival in the same month.
As reported by Deadline, the festival takes place in Los Angeles and runs from Friday, November 16 to Saturday, November 16. The episode won’t have been screened on TV at that point. The festival is described by Adult Swim as a “one-of-a-kind, 360° fan experience,” and will also feature a discussion with acclaimed animator Genndy Tartakovsky, panels, meet and greets, merchandise, and games.
Although Season 4 will arrive more than two years after Season 3, there is a lot more Rick & Morty on the way. In May 2018, it was revealed that Adult Swim renewed the show for no fewer than 70 more episodes. Previous seasons have run for just 10 episodes, but while we obviously won’t get all of the new episodes in Season 4, the show’s creators have confirmed that the wait time between future seasons will be reduced.
“I think we’ll be able to move a little quicker,” co-creator Justin Roiland told GameSpot last year. “We’re not going to have these big, long gaps between seasons. We’re going to just keep the machine going and schedule staggering vacations for people so we don’t burn out. It’s going to just be a perpetual production, which is exciting.”
