Season 4 of Rick and Morty will premiere in the UK on 20th November 2019 on E4.
The programme was previously scheduled to air on Channel 4 in January 2020, but in response to huge demand from fans eager to get their fix of the highly anticipated new episodes as soon as possible, the show will now air less than two weeks after the US launch.
Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, the Emmy-winning animated comedy series follows a sociopathic genius scientist who drags his inherently timid grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe.
“When we announced we would be airing Rick and Morty Series 4 on free to air TV in January we thought fans would be delighted,” said Ian Katz, Director of Programmes at Channel 4.
“Instead they told us – in their droves – that it wasn’t nearly soon enough, so we’ve listened and brought forward the UK premiere to November 20th on E4 and All 4. Enjoy!”
Ricky and Morty season 4 is split over two parts consisting of five episodes in each.
The fourth season’s UK broadcast rights form part of a partnership with Adult Swim – the production team behind Rick and Morty.
