With just over a month to go until Rick and Morty returns, Adult Swim has confirmed that Season 7 will not be split into two halves, meaning audiences won’t have to wait an extended period of time to see the back half of the season.
Seasons 1 and 4 of the Emmy-award animated series were previously divided into two blocks, with the first six (five for Season 4) airing at one point in the year, followed by the remainder a few months later. The episodes aired in weekly instalments through Seasons 2 and 3.
After Season 3 launched with the “The Rickshank Rickdemption” on April Fools Day 2017, audiences were made to wait until July to see how the rest of the season would play out.
It was a season that gave us Pickle Rick, Morty’s Mind Blowers (smudge on a lens), and Beth’s existential crisis in becoming a clone. It was worth the wait. Most recently, Season 5 disappeared for a month before returning for the final two episodes.
If each episode airs on a Sunday across the network, we can expect the seventh season to end one week before Christmas (December 17). Plus, Adult Swim revealed the episode titles for the season.
Rick and Morty Seasons 1-6 (if a catch-up is required) are available to stream on Netflix in the UK, with Season 7 set to land on Adult Swim on October 15. The series stars Dan Harmon, Spencer Grammer, Chris Parnell, Sarah Chalke and Kari Wahlgren.
