Guys, it’s here: the first look at Rick and Morty season four has dropped.
It’s been two years since season three ended in 2017 and Mr Poopybutthole claimed that it will be a long wait until season four.
Well, he was right but finally, thanks to some Comic-Con finessing, the show seems to be one step closer to its return, as it’s expected to drop in November.
The new clip, which sees Morty and his father grappling with Glootie, an alien app developer voiced by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi, was released at the Rick and Morty panel at San Diego’s Comic-Con.
The clip shows a distressed Morty demand that Glootie remove an app they don’t like from the internet and what follows is a brief back-and-forth that ends with a dangerous-sounding beeping noise that turns out to be an app as well.
Rick is notably missing from the preview.
Though it isn’t a full season trailer, clocking in at under 50 seconds, the clip – which was shared on the show’s Twitter page – is the longest video they’ve released since the third season came to a close.
So we’ll take it.
Last June co-creator Justin Roiland told Polygon that gaps between seasons should decrease, now that Adult Swim ordered 70 episodes to be made.
‘We’re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security,’ Roiland said at the time.
‘[Co-creator Dan] Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writers’ room,’ he said.
‘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 between seasons anymore.’
He added: ‘We’re going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It’s going to be really cool.’
Earlier this week creators dropped two photos from the hotly anticipated new series.
In one shot Rick is seen frolicking in the fields in a rather Theresa May-like fashion.
Meanwhile, another snap sees the scientist come face-to-face with terrifying giant crocodile robots with no weapon in his hand and no Morty by his side to help him.
Fans at the time wondered where his little sidekick was, and with the release of the new clip, it appears as though Rick is gallivanting on some far flung planet whilst Morty is dealing with troubles back on Earth.
So business as usual, then.
Rick And Morty season 4 is expected to arrive in November 2019.
