Adult Swim gives Rick and Morty a massive 70-episode renewal
The 70-episode pickup is more than double the 31 episodes Rick and Morty has produced in three seasons. The renewal is part of a long-term overall deal with creators Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland. "Rick and Morty is truly what a modern day hit looks like across multiple screens and multiple touchpoints,” says Cartoon Network president Christina Miller. The 70-episode order will bring Rick and Morty to 101 episodes, one past the magic number for syndication. According to The Hollywood Reporter, " Rick and Morty renewal was given, but the extent of this new pact is quite unexpected. Should Roiland and Harmon maintain anything close to their current production schedule, this will keep the show on the air for as long as another decade." ALSO: The question now is, when will Rick and Morty return?
