The galactic universal sitcom that is Rick and Morty is set to make its return to Cartoon Network after renewing its deal with Turner Broadcasting System. No ideas about the contractual aspects have been released, however co-writer of the show Justin Roiland took to Instagram to make the announcement that the show will be back for 70 more episodes.
Furthermore the show recently posted a video announcing that writing for the fourth season has begun, while also showing footage of the team braining storming process in third season.

The 70 episode addition was surprisingly delayed in most part due to the controversy that was ignited towarda the end of the third season with witty jabs towards Fastfood Chains like McDonalds. However, similar shows like Family Guy and The Simpsons have experience the same type of backlash in terms of controversial issues and have persevered through them and have had tremendous longevity.
In a GQ interview at the end of May of this year, Roiland discussed the long gaps into between seasons.
“We‘re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security.” ”[Co-creator Dan] Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writer’s room. 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 in between seasons anymore. We’re going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It’s going to be really cool.”
No official date has been scheduled for the premier of season four, however stay tuned to hybridnetworkyt.com to stay up to date on all things Rick and Morty.
