Fans have recently been enjoying season four of Rick and Morty, and now the next instalment of the popular Adult Swim show has been teased.
While many shows have struggled due to the coronavirus pandemic, Rick and Morty has not been one of them. In fact, boss Dan Harmon has said ‘We’re more on schedule than we’ve ever been.’
Speaking at PaleyFet NY 2020, he went on to say: ‘It kind of makes you have to focus on the whole process when you don’t have this office environment anymore. Everyone has to run this bee colony remotely, so the honey just gets made more consistently. It’s working for us.’
What’s more, Harmon has said what’s coming up for Rick and Morty fans: ‘There’s an episode in season five where Morty has a relationship with another female character that’s not Jessica.
‘It’s just a great little story and my very, very longtime friend and collaborator Rob Schrab wrote it … He’s also a very tender writer; a juvenile, John Hughes, he really feels heartache on a level a man his age shouldn’t. There’s an episode coming up in season five, my Emmy is going to that one.’
While production is underway on season five, the writing has now begun for season six. Season four episodes will be coming to Hulu in November 2020 for those who have not yet caught up.
