It’s official, Rick and Morty has been renewed for not just season 4, but for a whopping 70 more episodes – yes, you read that right.

The show’s co-creator Dan Harmon told GQ that the deal was made after a long negotiation process.

“It was a lot of back and forth, but Justin and I just needed enough episodes and the right kind of deal structure that would give us permission to do what we want to do, which is truly focus on the show,” he said. “We got all that, and we’re both very excited.”

The question that fans are asking is when will the next season be released. There has been no news yet on how the 70 episodes will be divided up into seasons and when the seasons will be coming out. All fans have to go by is a jesting comment made by Mr Poopybutthole at the end of season 3, claiming that season four probably won’t be happening for a “really long time.”

Adult Swim made the same jest on Twitter early last year, tweeting:

“See you for Season Four in like a really long time #RickandMorty.”

All we know is that we’re hoping it’s soon but we would bet money on Season 4 being worth the wait.
