Rick and Morty will be arriving in UK screens this year after Channel 4 declared it would be presenting the new series of the animated sci-fi series. In the past, Rick and Morty were on Netflix UK, but following a deal among Adult Swim, the British broadcaster will be screening content from the US network. As of yet, it’s unknown if season four is going to be open on Netflix UK with Channel 4 now airing it. On top of that, followers can catch up with the first three seasons on Channel 4’s streaming service All four from February this year, providing fans plenty of time to catch up.
The UK release day has yet to be confirmed by Channel 4, but any report is expected to be declared soon.
Once Rick and Morty are ready to watch on the platform, it indicates it will be free fro watchers to watch in the UK.
Discussing the hit adult animated series arising to Channel 4, the broadcaster’s director of programs Ian Katz said: “Rick and Morty is one of the popular anarchic, ingenious and original shows nearby and the breakthrough animated hit of recent years. I’m excited that it’s arising to Channel 4 and E4.”
Along with Rick and Morty, fans can watch another Adult Swim favourites like the classic Robot Chicken, Tigtone, Samurai Jack and The Eric Andre Show.
Other programs from Adult Swim now ready to view for free include Mr Pickles, The Venture Bros, Aqua Teen Hunter Force, and Hot Streets.
Back in May 2018, co-creator Justin Roiland shared US network Adult Swim had presented Rick and Morty the go-ahead for season four.
On top of that, he proclaimed Adult Swim wanted 70 more episodes.
Following on from the big news, Roiland informed Polygon: “We’re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security.”
He resumed: “(Co-creator Dan) Harmon is in excellent spirits, we have a great writer’s room.
“We want the scenes 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 strength to be faster.
“We’re not working to do these long breaks, these chasms in among seasons anymore.”
“We’re going to list vacation time and just keep the machine going. It’s going to be really cool.”
Despite the 70-episode order, Rick and Morty will be maintaining its 10-episode per season form for its fourth outing.
Both Roiland and Harmon affirmed to Entertainment Weekly back in July that the format would be staying the same.
On the fate of the show with such a huge order from Adult Swim with Harmon reflecting: “It’s way too early to say. On any given day you’ll seem like this thing can go for 20, 30 seasons.
“We have roles that don’t really age, it’s very Simpsons-esque. There’s so much we can do to keep touring this train.”
Roiland continued: “Sure I’ll end it! But I don’t ken that would be on 70. I would be equally unsurprised if you told me that this thing goes for 20 years.
“I wouldn’t balk [sic] at this at all. If it yet seems right, let’s do it.”
