Wow, this is news to us. Apparently Rick and Morty has not been signed on for another season, despite its overwhelming popularity with its loyal and vast fan base.
Dan Harmon, the show’s bread and butter, is one of the co-creators and also a voice actor, writer, producer, and executive producer for Rick and Morty. Needless to say, he’s an absolutely vital factor and the show wouldn’t be what it is without him.
So, it’s come as quite a shock that he hasn’t wrapped up the writing for another season of Rick and Morty — but even more surprising that the network hasn’t even called for it. Recently, Adult Swim announced its own festival, featuring the adventurous pair in its trailer featuring headliners Run The Jewels.
This tweet from a fan soon followed…
Quit wasting time and go finish the next R&M season, you lazy alcoholic. Run the Jewels can get the animators to make a music video, but we're waiting on them for the next season? Nah, we're waiting on you to finish writing it, like that fuckin book.

And Dan Harmon made it very clear why the next season of Rick and Morty isn’t locked in…
I hear ya, tough spot. On one hand, it can be challenging, especially with crippling lazy alcoholism, to write a show that hasn’t been ordered by a network. On the other hand, the thought that fans like you pay the price…I mean…I’m gonna grab a drink https://t.co/mvn9nthxCE

Oh, jeez, Rick. Er, Dan. We gotta figure this out.
