The American adult animated science-fiction sitcom, Rick and Morty, is approaching the end of its third season and it is already rumored that more episodes will be added to season 4 than initially planned.
The story of the scientist Rick and his nephew Morty is not done. The two creators, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon are already talking about another season, even if the 3rd one is not complete yet.
In an interview with EW, the two directors claimed that this time they hope to make an extended season. For season 3 they planned to make 14 episodes but ended up only releasing 10. They have also said that they have many new and exciting ideas for the new season.
In an excerpt from the interview the directors stated: “I’m still learning how to do the show efficiently while catering to the perfectionist in all of us. I would like to think I’ve learned enough from my mistakes in season 3 that we could definitely do 14 now, but then I have to say ‘Yeah but you’re the guy who says we can do 14 who turned out to be wrong so we’re not listening to you now.’ The nice healthy way to approach this is I want to prove it with the first 10 of season 4 — prove it to ourselves, to production, to the network — that it’s so easy that we’ll earn additional episodes. Because I never got this far [working on NBC’s] Community. I fell apart in season 3 of Community and got fired in season 4. Now I’m about to do season 4 of Rick and Morty and want to prove that I’ve grown.”
