‘Rick And Morty’ Season 4 Has ‘Complicated’ Contract Negotiations, Creator Says

Dan Harmon gave another update about “Rick and Morty” Season 4.

Adult Swim has not renewed “Rick and Morty” for another season yet and according to Harmon, this is due to contract negotiations that have gone “complicated.” Harmon appeared in a new episode of SModcast where he shared new details about their hit animated science fiction comedy series.

“The reason we’re not working on ‘Rick and Morty’ right now ain’t because I figured out that I don’t need to impress you,” Harmon said (via CBR.com). “It’s because of a little something called contract negotiations and it’s gotten complicated this time around.”

Justin Roiland’s co-creator did not discuss further the reason behind the “complicated” contract negotiations for “Rick and Morty” Season 4. However, the publication noted that this could be due to the “skyrocketing popularity in the wake of its long-awaited Season 3.”

The series’ fame is unquestionable. In fact, it influenced McDonald’s to revive its beloved Szechuan Sauce.

A few weeks back, Harmon announced on Twitter that Adult Swim has not renewed their series yet. The post was a reply to a fan who called him “lazy alcoholic” and who ordered him to finish “Rick and Morty” Season 4 instead.

“I hear ya, tough spot,” Harmon wrote. “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.”
