After no official word for some time and co-creator Dan Harmon tweeting that the show had not been renewed for a fourth season, fans of Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty can now breathe easy. The show has been renewed by for, get this, another 70 episodes! The news was announced by Justin Roiland who voices both Rick and Morty on the show. You can check out Roiland’s tweet below.

Roiland hashtagged his tweet with #theydrawingit, implying that work on the fourth season may already be underway. That is a large order of episodes, judging by past seasons, in the world of Rick and Morty that should transfer into about six or seven seasons. As popular as the show is, I was wondering why it was taking so long to get a renewal for a fourth season. The show has always taken extended hiatuses between seasons, and the fourth season should prove to be no different. So hang tight folks. No official release date has been announced.

Are you excited for 70 more episodes of Rick and Morty?  Let us know in the comments down below!
