The Anarchic 'Rick and Morty' Season Four Trailer Promises Plenty of Interdimensional Chaos

Wubba lubba dub dub, Rick and Morty fans. Yes, everyone's favourite interdimensional adventurers are finally back. It's been way too long since a certain eccentric scientist and his anxious grandson caused chaos across the multiverse, with the animated sitcom's third season releasing in 2017 — and if you've been feeling the duo's absence over the past two years, you're not alone.

Even the just-released new trailer for the series' next batch of episodes recognises the elephant in the room — or the lack of Mr Meeseeks and Mr Poopybutthole on our screens, to be specific. Those beloved characters are back, too, alongside Rick Sanchez and Morty Smith (both voiced by show co-creator Justin Roiland); Morty's mother Beth (Sarah Chalke), father Jerry (Chris Parnell) and sister Summer (Spencer Grammer); and all the world-hopping craziness that anyone could ever hope for.

If you've been counting down the days since the last episode hit back in October 2017, the fourth season will rejoin the smartest Rick and Morty-est Morty in the universe — and absolutely anything could happen from there, really. If you're just getting schwifty with the series for the first time, Rick and Morty doesn't just ape a concept straight out of Back to the Future (aka a lab coat-wearing old man, his teenage sidekick, and their time- and space-jumping antics), but filters that idea through the inventive minds of Roiland and Community's Dan Harmon.

After proving such a huge hit across its first three seasons, there's plenty more Rick and Morty to come, with the show renewed for a huge 70 episodes by US network Adult Swim last year (which is more than double the 31 that the comedy has aired to date). Of course, all that animated insanity takes time to put together, hence the delay. The first five new episodes are slated to drop from mid-November in America — watch this space for local release details.

And that's the wayyyyyy the news goes — check out the fourth season's trailer below:

Rick and Morty's fourth season will start airing weekly from November 10 in the US. We'll keep you updated with a release date Down Under once one comes to hand.
