Rick and Morty season 4 episode count halved and fans are gutted

Rick and Morty season four is nearly upon us, but the show’s creators have shared some bad news with fans – the new run will be the shortest yet at just five episodes.

The new trailer for the irreverent cartoon has already dropped, promising space battles, alternate universes and the return of one beloved character. But for some, the biggest take-away from the new clips was the announcement that there will be less instalments this time around.

Previous series of the show have clocked in at around either 10 or 11 episodes each, so news the number has been cut in half hasn’t gone down well with some fans, especially considering the comedy’s been off-air now for two years.

Fans are also wondering how they can possibly stretch out all five episodes in as long a time as possible – because you never know, it may be another two year wait for season five.

Although the creators have owned up to the shorter stint, calling the new episodes ‘half the season you deserve, all the season we could handle’.

Despite the shocking turn, acolytes of the show are already second-guessing what kind of brain-bending twists they’re in store for.

They reckon that Evil Morty could actually play a pivotal role in the new season and there’s been hints of a very ominous ‘beeping’ app.

Rick and Morty season four will air in November while seasons one to three air on Channel 4.
