New 'Rick And Morty' Clip Leads to Season 4 Announcement Speculation

It's been a hot minute since Rick and Morty last hit the airwaves, and it looks like fans have gotten pretty eager for new information because of it.

The Adult Swim series' official Twitter account recently shared a fifteen-second video, which imagines the titular pair as everything from fish to planets to Godzilla and Mothra. You can check it out below.

While there's no real context for why the video was released, it's made some wonder if concrete information surrounding Rick and Morty's fourth season is on the way. But as some have pointed out, Rick and Morty have appeared in an array of brief videos since the Season 3 finale, so there's no indication if this one points to an actual update.

Rick and Morty has taken on a unique sort of notoriety since Season 3 ended, sparking several fast food-related riots and various other pop culture flashpoints. And after quite a bit of delay, the series was renewed for seventy more episodes by Cartoon Network, a decision that will apparently bode well for the show.

“We‘re super excited that, for the first time ever, we’re locked in, we know what the future is, we have job security,” co-creator Justin Roiland shared in an interview last year. ”[Co-creator Dan] 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 new season will also be a sort of personal landmark for Harmon, something that fans of the writer will surely understand.

"I want to prove it with the first 10 [episodes] of season four — prove it to ourselves, to production, to the network — that it’s so easy that we’ll earn additional episodes," Harmon said back in 2017. "Because I never got this far on Community. I fell apart in season three of Community and got fired in season four. Now I’m about to do season four of Rick and Morty and want to prove that I’ve grown."
