Rick and Morty have been highly acclaimed as one of the best-animated sitcoms in the present times for a worldly known reason.
Creators of the shows, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have broken the silence on the release of the new season of the show. After the Season 4 ended, the show left a lot open for the fans and viewers to interpret and wait for. The show first aired in 2013.
The animated shows have always taken quite a lot of production time and energy to be showcased which has led to years of waiting between the shows. However, this time the makers of the show, Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon have told the loyal fans not to worry much as this time it won’t be long for the new Season to catch up.
Keeping the pandemic in mind, the show producers have still promised that the new Season release, they have acknowledged the fact that recording could be challenging, however, we can safely assume that even that it is coming along well seeing at the positive outlook and attitude of the creators.
However, the show has been notoriously known for not keeping the promises about the show and new airing episodes. So, we won’t know that the 5th Season might be randomly released as soon as the 4th Season ends, or we have to wait for a long time.
Harmon said: “I think it’s safe to say without fear of being wrong that the gap between Seasons three and four will be the longest and last time that it’s ever so long that it’s ridiculous. I don’t know how fast we can do it, but I know it will never be this long again.”
As mentioned before there has been no concrete information about the release date of the Season 5 but we do know according to the sources that the creators had been working on the not-yet-released Season while the Season 4 was premiering.
“We’re writing Season five while finishing Season four just to force ourselves to commit to a certain schedule,” Harmon explained. “Not to get anyone’s hopes up, but it is structured into our deal that if we’re going strong and fast there are options to deliver more episodes at a time.”
There were speculations during the initial months of the year that the Season 5 would premiere during April 2020, as earlier Seasons did. However, the show didn’t even surface with the signs of the new Season premiering in April.
This series takes a long time to put together. Animation director Nathan Litz revealed how much effort each moment of every episode takes.
He said (via The Express): “You see all the great action go by and it looks fantastic. But you look at it and you think, ‘That took four weeks to do, and it played out in one minute’.”
He also added “The overall scope of things is what makes it the challenge that it is.”
When it started, they “had finished Season 4” and authors are currently ”working on Season 5 blocks through Zoom” However, while there are advantages to working remotely, Roiland clarified, “they’re balanced by things which are worse”. However, the cogs are currently going on the writing side.
