This is a huge announcement for a show that just came off of a monumental third season, and has fans understandably excited for what is coming up next for the dysfunctional duo. This comes months after several reports emerged that season four had not been ordered by Adult Swim. The news was troubling to some of the show’s fanbase as the uncertainty around its future continued to grow. However, now avid watchers of Rick and Morty can breathe a sigh of relief as the seventy episode announcement means that we’re in store for seven whole seasons of antics from the intergalactic genius and his bumbling relative.
