Rick and Morty Season 4 is among the most anticipated shows on TV right now. Ever since the third season finished in October 2017, fans have been left wanting for more. However, the time between the release of Season 3 and Season 4 has become a painfully long wait.
Let us examine the reason behind the delay in the release of Rick and Morty Season 4. Here are some of the factors.
Rick and Morty Season 4 Delay: No. of Episodes
One of the primary reasons why we expect the fourth season of Rick and Morty is delayed is due to the number of episodes. In the past, we have seen seasons featuring 11, 10 and 10 episodes. However, with Rick and Morty Season 4 – we expect the number of episodes to go up.
The creators of the show had expressed their desire to make more episodes – and the animation and voiceover process does consume some time! This may be one of the reasons.
Rick and Morty Season 4 Delay Due to Contract Dispute?
Another major reason as to why Rick and Morty Season 4 got delayed is possibly being attributed to contract-related disputes. Negotiations for the contracts related to Rick and Morty were reportedly happening with higher-ups in Turner Broadcasting and not with Adult Swim.
Given the massive popularity of Rick and Morty Season 3 and merchandise sales booming – it is likely that the co-creators want a bigger stake in it! It will be interesting to see when the show finally makes it on the air. Stay tuned with us and we will update you the moment there’s an official communication!
