Rick And Morty Fans Just Got Amazing News

Rick and Morty is the gift that keeps on squanching. The protagonists have risen and fallen over the course of four seasons of Rick and Morty; the Earth has turned into a Cronenberg nightmare/paradise, and characters relaxed on the couch to watch inter-dimensional programs about sentient corn cops. More is yet to come when Rick and Morty season 5 releases eventually. But you can't rush art, especially since the show has the power to whip audiences into a frenzy over an old McDonalds sauce. That kind of power isn't to be taken lightly.

However, even though, at times, Rick and Morty feels as though it is flying by the seat of its pants, the show's creators are playing the long game. Thanks to recent developments (in real life, not the show), it turns out when Rick boasted about "Rick and Morty forever 100 years," he might not have been uttering the first of his many signature rants.

Rick and Morty is going to season 7 and beyond

Television production is a constant roll of the dice. One program might be canceled for a variety of reasons, while others TV shows have been renewed for strange reasons or even renewed after being canceled. This leaves the television landscape in a state of quantum flux, in which where shows are considered both renewed and canceled until an official announcement is made; of course, Rick and Morty fans should appreciate a good Schrödinger's Cat parallel. But the show's creators are still preparing for future seasons, even if they never come. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

Alex Rubens, who wrote for Key and Peele and created Keanu, recently revealed via Twitter he is part of the Rick and Morty writing crew (he previously penned the episode "Big Trouble in Little Sanchez"). More importantly, he is helping develop season 7. "Am I allowed to say we started writing Rick and Morty Season 7? (If not we didn't and I'm not)." So even though season 5 has yet to air and season 6 has yet to be green-lit, Rubens is already helping sculpt season 7. "There's epic canon in season five coming," show creator Dan Harmon said during a digital Adult Swim panel. We can only imagine what will be in store for season 6 or 7. Or season 8 because let's face facts: Rick and Morty probably isn't leaving anytime soon.
