Well, with SDCC on the horizon, the teasers begin with the latest being for the newest season of Rick & Morty (which is coming in November). While the panel will be this Friday at 1:00-1:45 p.m. in the Indigo Ballroom at Hilton San Diego Bayfront that’s not to stop some new news slipping in. Two images from the newest season have popped up:
The other bits that have been revealed so far is that the newest season will again have ten episodes, and in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon. The later went on the record to say that the gap for the next season will not be as long as prior ones.
I think it’s safe to say without fear of being wrong that the gap between seasons 3 and 4 will be the longest and last time that it’s ever so long that it’s ridiculous. I don’t know how fast we can do it, but I know it will never be this long again. There were so many things that had to be settled before we even started season 4, and it’s really safe to say — as Justin says — we’re literally writing season 5 while finishing season 4 just to force ourselves to commit to a certain schedule. Not to get anyone’s hopes up, but it is structured into our deal that if we’re going strong and fast there are options to deliver more episodes at a time. Adult Swim can say, “These are on time and great. Do you want to do more instead of taking a break?” And we can then do more. I’d like to see that day. Just knowing it’s possible makes me eager for it. I feel like a naughty boy when I’m late.
Also revealed in the interview is that Paul Giamatti, Sam Neil, Taika Waititi, and Kathleen Turner will be guest voicing this season. With the SDCC panel as well, besides new info, one can probably expect a trailer and maybe other goodies shown like in previous years.
