Rick and Morty season 4 finished its five-episode run on Adult Swim in 2019, and five more will air in 2020, with season 4, episode 6 coming next. There's still no release date for the second half of the season, but one of the cast has provided a suggestion that's it coming sooner rather than later. 

Below, we'll explain more on when you can expect to see episode 6 of Rick and Morty season 4. Our best guess is that the show will return in the first half of this year, but this is a show famous for taking its time: over two years passed between seasons 3 and 4.

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:

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?

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). But you can watch the 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 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. 

When is the next episode of Rick and Morty in the UK?

Rick and Morty will return on E4 or Channel 4 sometime in 2020. The first five episodes are available to watch now on streaming service All4.
