Rick and Morty creator offers update on whether season 4 is happening

While Rick and Morty is surprisingly yet to be given the go-ahead for a fourth season, co-creator Dan Harmon nevertheless remains upbeat.

Last month, he revealed that things were “complicated” in terms of negotiations, though he’s now offered an update on where things stand.

And it may be good news.

“I’m optimistic right now, at the moment,” Harmon told Den of Geek.

“Negotiations are tough. It’s an unprecedented situation, and everybody’s being real cool and wants to make an agreement happen so that we can get started. That’s about all I can say.”

While Harmon remained tight-lipped last month over why the Adult Swim show was taking so long to get the greenlight, his co-creator Justin Roiland seemingly put the blame on parent company Turner.

“For everyone telling me to get back to work on Rick and Morty (season four) turn your attention to Turner,” he tweeted. “I’m waiting around just like you. Making some cool video games in the meantime though!”

As we wait to hopefully hear good news (we would be shocked if Rick and Morty was cancelled, especially given its big and devoted fan base), the show’s lead characters have been busy…

Rick and Morty recently featured in a tribute episode released on the Adult Swim website, as well as a cameo in My Little Pony. That’s on top of the Rick and Morty-themed Run the Jewels music video that hit the web last month.

Rick and Morty seasons 1-3 are available to watch on Netflix. The show airs on Adult Swim in the US.
