Five episodes of Rick and Morty season 4 went live on Adult Swim in 2019, and season 4 episode 6 is up next at an unconfirmed date in 2020. We don't have a release date for the rest of Rick and Morty season 4, which is made worse by the fact that the gap between seasons 3 and 4 was much too long. That said, one member of the cast suggests it's coming sooner rather than later.
Here we'll break down when you can expect to see Rick and Morty season 4 episode 6. Our best guess is that the show will return in the first half of 2020, but this is a show perfectly happy to take its time. Who knows how long we could be waiting?
Rick and Morty season 4 episode 6 will release "sooner than later"
The exact timing is unclear for the second half of Rick and Morty season 4, but the bulk of the voice acting has already been recorded for the last five episodes. Collider (thanks, GamesRadar) interviewed the voice of Summer, Spencer Grammer, who revealed she's finished recording the script for season 4 episode 10, though she has additional work to do after the fact.
"And then we have another five coming out eventually, sooner than later. And then we also have, I know they’re working on season five," she says, noting there are some interesting Summer-themed episodes coming up.
"I just recorded 4.10 when I was in LA a few weeks ago but, those change a lot. I'll be going back to do pick-ups probably for some of them. They’re revising and then re-writing certain things. So, we’re not finished yet but yes, I recorded all of them so far."
It's hard to tell just how that translates to when we'll see more of season 4, but "sooner than later" would indicate that it's unlikely to be a whole year away. That said, this is an animated show, which requires more lead time than a live-action show usually does.
We already knew there'd be a Rick and Morty season 5, as the show was renewed for 70 episodes after season 3 ended. In case you need reassuring that the show is definitely returning in 2020, the official Rick and Morty account tweeted the below:

As fans fear further release date delays as a result of the coronavirus, our favourite pair took to Instagram to remind us to maintain our hygiene in these trying times, at least.
How many episodes of Rick and Morty season 4 are left?
Five episodes. Rick and Morty season 4 is ten episodes long. Five were always going to air in 2019, while the other half was pegged for a no-more-specific date than 2020.
Is Rick and Morty season 4 on Hulu?
We have the rights to stream past seasons of Rick and Morty in our streaming library. We should see S4 join our streaming library some time after the season finishes airing on TV. If you'd like to stream S4 as it airs, you can do so with Hulu + Live TV: https://t.co/xiny322tcE!November 20, 2019
You can't stream season 4 of Rick and Morty on-demand with regular Hulu subscriptions right now - Hulu has been fielding requests for this on Twitter (see above). You can only watch new episodes as they air with the more expensive Hulu + Live TV package.
Otherwise, you'll have to wait for Rick and Morty season 4 to be added to Hulu a few months after the whole season has completed airing, which will be 2020 at the earliest. You can watch the first two episodes on Adult Swim's website, though, and unlock the others if you have a cable subscription.
Rick and Morty do feature in a Super Bowl commercial, at least

Hey, it's not Rick and Morty season 4, but it is one minute of new animation about...Pringles. This commercial was created as part of a Super Bowl partnership, but we wouldn't have minded if they revealed the release date for episode 6 at the same time.
The official Rick and Morty account hasn't stopped tweeting in the time since the show went off the air, even though a release date is still forthcoming.
