Aw Geez! ‘Rick and Morty’ Renewed for 70 More Episodes


via Adult Swim

Wubba lubba dub dub! Rick and Morty is set to return for a whole lot more adventures.

Aw geez! Co-creators Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon announced Thursday, May 10 that they’ve signed a deal to renew the hit ‘toon show Rick and Morty for 70(!) more episodes. There’s still no telling just when the fourth season of wild, portal-jumping adventures will be back on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim.

Roiland made the announcement with a tweet containing a drawing of the stars of the show, Rick and Morty with some dialogue, thanks to text bubbles.

“It’s official Morty. 70 more episodes Morty. You and me. 70 more Morty,” Rick says in the drawing.

All Morty replies in his text bubble is his famous “aw, geez.”

The last time we saw Rick and his grandson go on a crazy adventure was October 1 of last year, when they found themselves in a war with the President in the White House.

Fans of the show knew that they would have to wait some time for the fourth season. In a post-credit scene of the season three finale, one famous character makes an appearance and shares some information.

“Ooh-wee, what a season,” Mr. Poopybutthole says as we sits with his new family. “See you for season four, in, like… a really long time.”

Thursday’s announcement brought some relief to viewers, however. There’s been 31 episodes of Rick and Morty through three seasons so far. Now, the world is guaranteed to see more than double that amount in the future.

Season one of Rick and Morty debuted back in October of 2013, leading a 11-episode run. Seasons two and three both featured 10 episodes each.

From this, fans can expect to see seven more seasons of Rick and Morty. There’s no telling if Roiland and Harmon will decide to switch it up.

To help celebrate the huge news, the creators have launched the Rickmobile “Don’t Even Trip Road Trip 2018” pop-up shop. The pop-up shop truck will be selling exclusive clothing and more.

The Rickmobile tour will begin May 18, in Atlanta, Georgia and conclude in Tallahassee, Fla. October 20.

Rick and Morty fans in Los Angeles were left out on the first released schedule of Rickmobile stops. The pop-up shop will be in San Diego for five days, however, from July 18-July 22.

With the Szechuan sauce at McDonald’s, the Rickmobile pop-up shop, and the 70-episode renewal announcement, the Rick and Morty hype train is set to get rolling again.
