It’s big news for fans of the Rick and Morty series. In exclusive news, it’s been revealed that the show’s season 7 is in development.
According to Screen Rant, Rick and Morty show’s co-creator Dan Harmon just revealed that season 7 is happening. Interestingly, there have been only four seasons of the popular series. And currently, it was announced that the show is already renewed for a fifth installment.
The Adult Swim animated series first premiered seven years ago, in 2013. Season 4 finished earlier this year. The release date for the next part is yet to be revealed.
Rick and Morty upcoming seasons and details
So far, seasons three and four have witnessed a progression of two years. But in the meantime, Adult Swim announced that around 70 new episodes would arrive soon. And there will be a division of them in the form of upcoming seasons.
It simply means that the work on the new episodes is done, and fans have to wait for the next installment. The only remaining thing is the reveal of the premiere date.
In season four, the last episode in the series was titled Star Mort Rickturn of the Jerri. And it showed Space Beth and the relationship between Rick and Beth. And eventually, the excitement over season five increased as well at the end.
The information on season 7 of Rick and Morty was discussed in a recent virtual panel of Adult Swim Festival 2020. In that, co-creator Harmon dropped the big news of plans.
“I think we’re working on season 7 right now; I can’t even keep track. I wouldn’t know if I were spoiling season 5 or season 6.”
He also added that fans should hope for “pretty groovy things coming regarding Beth…Space Beth was not a one-off character.”
The impact of COVID-19 over the show’s production
Despite lockdown and a phase of crisis amid a pandemic, the animated show’s team benefitted from it, indirectly. In another virtual event, the co-creator said that the show’s production team received great help due to this period to focus properly on the new seasons. The news of season 7 is truly evidence of this advantage.
But then there comes a crucial problem of potential spoilers also. Because everyone knows of all three new seasons in advance, it will be interesting to see how the makers prevent the big leaks in the coming days.
Meanwhile, the fans can refresh their memories and series episodes of Rick and Morty, starting from the first to the fourth season. They can stream them all right now.
