Harmon tweeted back in March that the show hadn’t been renewed, saying, “On one hand, it can be challenging, especially with crippling lazy alcoholism, to write a show that hasn’t been ordered by a network.” Fans took to the platform to urge Adult Swim and Netflix to get their acts together in renewing the hit show.

While no expect release dates have been revealed so far, one nifty Redditor has pointed out that we could potentially see new episodes as early as Christmas.
We’re sure the new season will bring even more catchphrases and cult-esque references that’ll get incessantly thrown around on social media, because let’s face it, you have to have a very high IQ. to understand the nuances of Rick and Morty.
