Rick and Morty fans have been awaiting season 4 for what feels like an eternity. And while schezwan sauce may have quelled some fans hunger, many are still anxiously awaiting any more information they can get their hands.
Emmy Magazine provided just that in a recent profile for the series – one that came about as a result of an Emmy Nomination for the Season 3 episode “Pickle Rick.” In the piece, Rick and Morty co-creator Dan Harmon detailed how the writing process for Season 4 will differ from previous seasons and what was originally planned for the season.
“It’s a show that can literally go anywhere and do anything,” Harmon said “It has a boundless margin for nihilism. In other words: you can’t go too far. Not only narratively, but also tonally, there is nothing off the table for the show.”
Harmon goes on to explain that he hopes his writing will be able to adopt a more anarchic approach. While Harmon likes to focus on structure when it comes to the series, he also intends to allow individual moments to guide things moving forward. A lot of that will come with the help of co-creator Justin Roiland, who voices both main characters on the show.
Adult Swim’s recent order of 70 new episodes for the series, meaning there are plenty more Rick and Morty hijinks to come in the future.
