The fourth season of Rick and Morty is set to hit Channel 4. Wubba lubba dub dub!
And if that's not good enough news for fans of the cult cartoon, the first three seasons will be airing on E4 next month.
The highly-anticipated fourth season doesn't have a release date yet and plot details are scarce, but back in May last year, co-creator Justin Roiland posted to Twitter to reveal that show had been signed up for '70 more episodes'.
And in June last year, it was announced that production had, at last, begun.
Roiland, who created the show alongside Dan Harmon, told 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.
“Harmon is in great spirits, we have a great writer's room. We want the episodes 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 ability to be faster.
“We're not going to do these long breaks, these chasms in between seasons anymore. We're going to schedule vacation time and just keep the machine going. It's going to be really cool.”
This was music to the ears of fans, who were forced to (impatiently) wait two years between season two and three and were expecting a similar length of time before the fourth season dropped.
Ian Katz, Channel 4 Director of Programmes, said “Rick and Morty is one of the most anarchic, ingenious and original shows around and the breakthrough animated hit of recent years. I'm thrilled that it's coming to Channel 4 and E4.” You and me both, pal.
The show is currently available on Netflix for viewers in the UK, but there's been plenty of rumours to suggest it wouldn't be around for long, and now it looks like we might know why.
The move comes as Channel 4 partners with Adult Swim to host a load of content on All 4, where it can be viewed for free, which is pretty amazing news.
